It's Council time again

First up at the Tuesday, February 28th Council meeting is Board/Commission/Committee updates.

We'll hear an update from the Traffic and Safety Commission from Council Roden and from the Planning Commission and Historic Preservation Commission from Council Martin-Willis.

The City Manager and Mayor will provide their reports then we'll hear from the Communications Coordinator, Emmanuel Goicochea. City Manager West has requested staff provide informational updates to Council and Emmanuel's is next up.

We'll then move to some Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission (OLCC) business presented by our Police Department. Businesses request licenses (or license renewals) from the OLCC to sell alcohol onsite. The Independence Police Department reviews those requests and does a records check on each business and provides any info they feel may be relevant to Council prior to Council review. I personally feel the PD can handle this on their own without Council intervention, but the OLCC prefers it be done in this manner so we comply.

The rest of the meeting will be focused on Public Works activity, specifically:

  • Wastewater User Rates and Fees

  • Stormwater User Rates and Fees

  • Contract Award: Biosolids Removal
