City Council Preview

The Mexico City Council will sit down for a work sessionĀ  Monday evening to discuss two items.

Councilmen will hear an update from Community Development Department officials on the comprehensive planning process. Also, they will take a look at a demolition agreement dealing with an old pawn shop building at 216 East Liberty.

The City Council will hold their regular meeting at 7:00 p.m. Monday. First, the public can weigh in on the 2012 property tax rate. The recommended rate is about 71.5 cents per $100 valuation.

The Council will then consider a resolution to accept the Scope of Services, Part A, of the Mexico Technology Park Feasability Analysis. This deals with fees for Full Circle Advantage, the consultant that is looking at the nearly 53-acres of land bought by City officials near the Plant Sciences Center. The fees total around $39,000, to be divided among the city, county, and “Progress Mexico.”

Another resolution would approve another change order for the wastewater treatment plant phase two improvements.

And the Council will revisit a bill that sets guidelines for city officials’ financial disclosure.

We will have a full recap Tuesday.
