City Council will meet Tuesday, March 6, 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 is scheduled to vote on the appropriation of $635,969 in insurance proceeds from flood damage that occurred to the hydroelectric generator at the Pinnacles hydro complex. The money would be used to repair and replace damaged components of the generator.

The generator was installed at Talbott Dam in 1990 to provide additional generation from the facility. In September 2015, excessive rains resulted in flooding that damaged or destroyed the generator and supporting infrastructure. After engineering analysis and negotiations with the insurance provider, a settlement was reached that will allow the City to complete the restoration and repairs needed. It is expected to take about 12 months to complete the restoration.

A public hearing will precede the vote.

City Council also is scheduled to vote on several other matters Tuesday night:

  • sign regulation changes that would allow for renovation of the ground sign located at Airside Industrial Park. A public hearing will precede the vote.
  • a special use permit that would allow a teaching kitchen to be operated at 620 North Main St.. The operation will charge a fee for attendees and therefore requires a Special Use Permit. A public hearing will precede the vote
  • a rezoning application that would allow automobile sales at 498 Arnett Blvd. A public hearing will precede the vote.
  • appointment of Gladys D. Webb to the Southern Area Agency on Aging.

During the work session, City Council will discuss a proposed change in bid procedures on procurement contracts. The current city code contains a list of 10 special qualifications that may be considered alongside price when awarding a procurement contract subject to competitive bidding. The proposed change would add potential conflicts of interest to the list.

 City Council also will discuss modifying its meeting schedule, and it will hold a closed meeting during the work session as allowed by state law to discuss a prospective business or industry related to economic development.

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.
