Hello Friends,

I was out of town for work this week and unable to attend the City Council meeting.  I did have several friends in attendance who reported it was a full house thanks to several big items on the agenda including a discussion about the redevelopment of the Old Middle School property on State Street.  I have reviewed the video of the meeting and have added some comments to the issues below.

Please read below for comments and voting results and as always, thanks for reading.

Hello Friends,

  • The meeting on the 13th was a long one, going over four hours with discussion regarding the annexation of the Auburn Trail Subdivision (Item #29) taking up a good chunk of the time.  Annexations are always polarizing and this one was no different.  There were updates and actions on some big projects such as the airport hanger, a community healthy life center, community solar, and more.  See below for details.
  • City Council is winding down for 2016 with just one more meeting scheduled on December on the 20th. 

Thanks for reading.
