Council’s heavy lifting to come Thursday; light Monday agenda

By Staff | Sep 16, 2016

A light agenda awaits City Council for their next weekly meeting on Monday.

Aside from some committee appointments, council members will conduct just two final public hearings. Both resolutions deal with vacation of right-of-way and easements with conditions and the city’s hearing examiner recommends approval.

One applicant seeks to have the western end of the Mast Canal vacated in order to construct a commercial center on Santa Barbara Boulevard at Southwest 28th Street. The vacation would shift the new end of the canal eastward by about 80 feet. It also would give the property a slightly enlarged, more regularly shaped parcel with increased depth.

The second applicant seeking vacation of easements on Southeast 32nd Street for construction of a single-family home. The vacation would provide for the rerouting of stormwater to a canal and a continuous perimeter easement around the site.

Council also will be updated by Burton & Associates on its annual utilities rate sufficiency analysis. That analysis has determined that no increase water, sewer or irrigation rates are necessary for Fiscal Year 2017.

The meeting is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. Monday in Council Chambers.

A special council meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22, in Council Chambers for the second and final public hearing to approve the city’s FY 2017 operating budget. The budget goes into effect on Oct. 1.

City Hall is at 1015 Cultural Park Blvd.
