City Council will meet Tuesday, Feb. 7, in a business session at 7 p.m., followed by a work session. Both sessions are open to the public.
The business session will be held in the Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building, which is located at 427 Patton St.
The work session will be held on the same floor, but across the hall in the Council Conference Room. In work sessions, Council reviews non-routine matters that will be voted upon in future business meetings.
During the business session, City Council will vote on whether to transfer $500,000 from reserves to acquire and construct an alternate emergency entrance and exit to the Pine Tag neighborhood on West Main Street. A public hearing will precede the vote.
Trains periodically block the entrance to the neighborhood for extended periods. When blocked, there is no practical way for the neighborhood to receive emergency services. City staff has explored options for providing an alternate emergency access into and out of the neighborhood. This emergency route is the most feasible option.
The route would extend from Oak Creek Drive and then across a creek and along an existing dirt road to Corning Drive.
Property acquisition and construction costs are estimated to cost $500,000.
City Council also is scheduled to vote on two other matters:
For the work session, the agenda includes the following items:
River City TV, the city’s government access channel, will air the business session. Watch it live on cable (Comcast channel 10 and Gamewood channel 122) or streaming on the River City TV Facebook page.
River City TV does not air work sessions, but they are open to the public.
