5 things to watch at the next City Commission meeting


Here are 5 things to watch at the May 8 City Commission meeting…

  1. Municipal Clerks Week: May 7-13, 2017 is Municipal Clerks Week. Mayor Kathy Ling will read a proclamation extending appreciation to all municipal clerks for the vital services they perform with neutrality and impartiality, rendering equal service to all.
  2. National Public Works Week: Mayor Ling will proclaim May 21-27, 2017 as Public Works Week. Sponsored by the American Public Works Association, this nationally recognized week honors the public works professionals responsible for the planning, operation and maintenance of the water treatment and distribution, solid waste systems, public properties, city streets and other facilities.
  3. Brownfield Redevelopment Program Policy: The City Commission will consider the adoption of an updated Brownfield Redevelopment Program Policy as recommended by the Brownfield Redevelopment Authority. The purpose of the new policy is to provide appropriate guidance to both staff and interested developers regarding the City’s expectations for future brownfield redevelopment projects.
  4. CMU Auction Agreement for obsolete traffic signal and signs: The City Commission will consider authorizing the sale of several outdated traffic signals and signs at Central Michigan University’s summer auction in June. The Division of Public Works (DPW) is requesting a one-time exception to the City’s purchasing policy as it allows the sale/disposal of City-owned equipment in an online auction, but not a live auction.
  5. Airport slope clearing project: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently indicated that the approach slopes for the airport had some potential obstructions starting to grow in the slope clearing area, and that it was necessary to address those concerns before future capital projects on the runway could be considered. The commission will consider an agreement with MDOT that will reimburse the City for 95% of the costs associated with the initial phase of the project.
