The first City Council meeting of the year will be a Study Session covering some of the Capital items - streets and parks - to be included in the proposed $30M Bond Issue first brought to the attention of the public (and this member of the Council) by the Director of Public Works in a November meeting of the Police Focus Group. Also discussed, but not included in this discussion will be the funding for a new or renovated Police facility, which was estimated to be an additional $5M.
It appears that this bond issue will be on the ballot sometime this year. Now is a good time to find out what it will cost and what benefits will be derived. I hope to see you at this and all following meetings concerning both the bond issue as well as the upcoming budget meetings.
