2010 Council Announcements

May 18, 2010


Even More Additional Announcements


1.    The Council’s monthly policy discussion falls on next Tuesday, May 25. Due to the budget, the Council is meeting that day. Would it be alright to include a policy discussion item as part of the agenda items? Or would the Council prefer to reschedule to a different day?

Most Council Members were in favor of including it.

2.    Rose Park Golf Course – The steps thus far have been specific to Open Space land transactions, but there is another process in the City Code pertaining to conveyances of “significant parcels of real property”. This process includes an item on the formal agenda to see if the Council would like to “consider requesting that the Administration hold a hearing” regarding the proposed sale of 3 acres of land at Rose Park Golf Course.  This step could be added to next Tuesday’s agenda as the only formal business item (on Unfinished Business). Is it okay with the Council to add this to the May 25 agenda?

Most Council Members were in favor.
