Upcoming Council Meeting 9.21.21

We had cancelled the regularly scheduled meeting right after Labor day so it's been a little while since our last meeting.  

There are a few significant items that will be discussed at our next meeting next week:
  • Appropriation of funds to improve audio / video equipment at Hoyer Hall.  The proposal at hand includes funding to enable a hybrid meeting approach where folks would be able to both be in person and remote.

  • Hiring consultant to facilitate developing and implementing a program to use federal stimulus funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)  Clayton will be receiving ARPA funds and one of the allowable uses is the cost to develop and implement a plan to use the funds themselves.

  • Discuss the process for placing a measure on the ballot.  Earlier this year I outlined some of the fiscal challenges that the city is facing.  One method to address those challenges would be a tax measure which the voters would have to approve.  This discussion is to discuss the overall process of such a ballot measure.
Please let me know if you have questions or comments about any of the above.
