Council Meeting 4-03-2012

The following are the proposed agenda items for Tuesday evening’s regular City Council meeting.  The agenda and packet can be found on the City Council web page.


The City Council will hold a public hearing to adopt the final proposed ward boundaries based on the 2010 Census.  The only change from the previous proposal is that the Ward 2 polling location will remain at City Hall.  A previous proposal called for a combined polling place of Wards 1 and 2 at the Senior Center.

The City Council will consider a revised Intergovernmental Agreement with Huntsville Township to construct 14th Avenue SE.  The revised agreement as proposed from the Township caps the township contribution at no more than 10 percent of current estimates.  The City would bear any cost increases from the current estimate, although the current estimate includes a 10-percent contingency.  The agreement restricts annexation proceedings for at least 15 years.  And, the agreement does not contain provisions for maintenance.

The City Council will also schedule a public hearing for April 17 to discuss the proposed special assessments for property owners affected by the proposed 14th Avenue SE project.
