City council to make appointments in Tuesday session
NEEDLES — Setting a series of workshops to explain state mandates and global market impacts on local recycling costs, eliminating a four-hour parking limit in the free parking lot at Jack Smith Park, and discussing the state’s new ‘Water Shut Off Protection Act’ and its effect on ratepayers are among the two dozen agenda items for the Needles City Council and Needles Public Utility Authority meeting of Tuesday, Jan. 8.
The meeting is to begin with a 5:30 p.m. executive session; the public session is to open at 6 p.m. in council chambers at 1111 Bailey Ave.
Council is also to interview — and perhaps appoint — candidates for several city boards and commissions. There are just enough candidates to fill the seats for most; at least one has more applicants than available positions; and at least one other appears to have fewer candidates than needed.
Other items to be considered include completion of an electric panel replacement project for the Lilyhill water booster station; amendment to an agreement for a second building with one cannabis cultivator and granting a temporary certificate of occupancy for another; and appointment of city councilors as representatives of various associations, authorities and task forces to which the city belongs.
