City Council meeting minutes August 3, 2009
Council meeting docs, etc.

Important content:

Mayor DeGraw requested the confirmation of City Council of the appointment of Steve Shaner as the City’s Fire Chief.

Res. 2009-08: A Resolution approving the Grant of Job Creation Tax Credit for Businesses within the Grandview Yard Site. This was the big ord. that set the tax rates for the G.Y. developers (the number of this ord. was later substituted to 2009-29).

…Gladman stated that throughout the process he has expressed his concern about the use of income tax to pay any debt service that the City might have. He is especially concerned that the City is giving a substantial subsidy to the developer, which he thinks is not needed and could better be used for debt service. Gladman commended the Economic Development Committee Chair and members for making this into a much better form that what it was originally but he is still not supportive of it.

Vote on approval: Hastie – yes, Jagers – yes, Koelker – yes, Panzera – yes, Von Jasinski – yes, Gladman – no, President Reynolds – yes. LEGISLATION PASSED – ORDINANCE 2009-29.

Ord. 2009-24: An Ordinance authorizing Real Property Tax Exemption with respect to Certain Real Property within the Grandview Yard Site. This was the second large ord. needed to finalize the G.Y. project. All voted yes.

Following the passage of these the council members joined the NRI bigshots in a toast to the completion of the G.Y. negotiations.

Chicken Ord. - Koelker requested that this particular version of the proposed legislation be withdrawn. She stated that it is not in a form that is workable.
