Upcoming Council Meeting 12.19.23

Tonight the Council will discuss several significant items:

- The GHAD Board will meet first at 6pm to select a new Chair and Vice Chair.  Then the GHAD Board will discuss proposed updates to the GHAD Plan of Control.  The Plan of Control is the document that controls among other things, the activities that the GHAD undertakes.  Given the degrading financial position of the GHAD, we are considering what funding level is necessary to maintain the activities, and alternatives should we not achieve that level of funding.

- The Council will then discuss changes to the General Plan Housing Element.  We first approved changes back in January 2023, however after feedback from CA HCD, they required certain changes before they would certify our Housing Element.  We will discuss those updates.

- We will receive the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR).  This is the audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023.

- We will discuss authorizing $200K of reserves for design and permitting related to the Cardinet Trail repair.  Much of these funds have the potential to be reimbursed by FEMA, but the City is required to spend the money first and reimbursement is not guaranteed.

- We will appoint members to the City Sponsored Special Events Committee.

- We will discuss Council assignments for standing and ad hoc committees.  Each year the Mayor puts forth a proposal for these assignments.

- There will also be a closed session related to labor negotiations regarding the Clayton Police Officers Association.

If you have any thoughts or questions on the above, please let me know.
