ITEM 7: Annual Financial Report - BrooksWatson, PLLC, conducted an audit of the City’s financial activities for fiscal year 2019-2020. The city received an unmodified opinion, the highest level of assurance. There are no material deficiencies or weaknesses as reported by the auditing firm. Council voted 5-0 to accept the annual report.
ITEM 8: Outside and Tent Sales Ordinance - The Sam Moon Group approached the city about hosting monthly outdoor artisan markets in the plaza area across from the AMC Theatre. The goal of such an event would be to draw people into the development so they can enjoy the attraction and ultimately eat at the restaurants, shop in the retail stores, and visit the indoor recreation. A temporary ordinance was proposed for 120 days in order to see if this was a workable solution. Council voted 5-0 to approve the temporary ordinance.
ITEM 9: Resolution of Support for House Bill 233 - State Representative Andrew Murr introduced H.B. 233 amending the original H.B. 2439 which limited the ability of municipalities to regulate building materials. The proposed amendment adds Section 3000.015, which reads as follows: " This chapter does not apply to a municipality with a population of less than 25,000." Council voted 5-0 to support the amended bill.
ITEM 10: Senior Management Positions- Following the creation of the Director of Community Development position, the existing resolution needed to be updated to reflect that role as a “senior management position.” Council voted 5-0 to approve the amended resolution.
ITEM 11: Sick Pool Committee Reappointments and New Appointments- The Committee is composed of eight regular full-time employees from the city departments, appointed by Council for positions one through eight. Council voted 5-0 to approve the appointments and reappointments.
