Last night the Council took a few significant actions:
- We appointed Ed Miller to the Planning Commission. There was a vacancy due to Peter Cloven being elected. Mr. Miller will complete the remainder of the term through June 2021 (5 months) and then be eligible to reapply. Congratulations and welcome Commissioner Miller.
- We received and approved the city's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020. It's a lengthy document that goes into detail around all of the activities and financial position of the city. While it may not be entirely riveting, as an accountant I find it interesting and worth a read if you have time. The document will be posted on the city's website as soon as it is finalized. In summary, for 2020, the city increased its unrestricted fund balance by a moderate but healthy amount of approximately $290K (this excludes certain unrealized gains on investments). We will be doing a planning session in the next few weeks to determine best use of these one time funds.
- We approved an 18 unit sub division towards the end of Mitchell Canyon on a currently undeveloped lot. The builder had worked with nearby neighbors and collaborated on modifying plans to address various concerns. The presentation was thorough, and the review by city staff and Planning Commission helped bring forward a project that will be a good fit for the surrounding area. Below is a aerial rendering:
