Here is Monday's agenda and most of the packet. I didn't receive it all in e-format, so I am giving you what I have.
Allied Waste Contract - the major change in this contract from the original contract is that your trash can will now have to be an Allied Waste issued can so they can perform automated pick ups. If you have an opinion on whether or not your trash can type should be mandated by the city, I would suggest you come out to the meeting and voice your opinion after this bills 1st reading.
Downtown Redevelopment Property loan restructure. This bill will allow us to make interest only payments on the loans the city took out to pay for a portion of the property downtown. I believe the idea is to pay interest only until we can get a project that will generate sales tax revenue to cover the loan payments or until we can sell. This will work if we get a good project soon enough, BUT if the city gets stuck with the land, this deal will increase the amount we pay for the land over the life of the loan. This has been deemed an emergency bill because the payment will be due on March first. So if you have an opinion, this meeting will be the time to state it.
