The City Council unanimously rejected the request to allow a special use permit for a solar farm. While the concept of a solar farm is good , there are better locations available which would not be adjacent to residential properties.
The Council approved a union contract with the City Inspectors. I was in the opposition ,
The wage increases were way out of line with other unions contacts. The increases that begin May 1 range from 7% to 15%.
While this contract was forced on the City by an arbitrator, I could not in good conscience support such large increases.
The budget process has been moved back to begin February 5. I will keep you updated on the discussions.
The Public Services committee meets next Tuesday , January 22 at 6 pm. I will update on the agenda for that meeting later this week.
Thank you. As always, contact me if you have comments or concerns.
