ATASCADERO — After honoring Atascadero photographer Joe Schwartz for his 100th birthday this year and recognizing Assistant City Manager Jim Lewis for eight years of service, the Atascadero City Council will consider a variety of different items at its meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 6 p.m.
The council will consider amending the planning commission terms that states that all planning commissioners will have two-year terms. Currently, commissioners appointed by council members serve for a term of four years and at-large commissioners have two-year terms.
In management reports, the council will discuss what to name the bandstand at Atascadero Lake Park, which is being rebuilt by the Atascadero Kiwanis Club.
Next, the council will consider advancing the new library up to $30,000 from the wastewater fund to cover impact fees. According to the staff report, there is still more than $30,000 for the library to raise for the new library. City staff estimates that it would take less than three years for the funds to be repaid to the wastewater fund.
The council will discuss whether or not to implement the city of Atascadero Marketing Plan, which has been divided into two phases. Phase 1 is from Nov. 12, 2012, through June 30 and will cost $104,000. Phase 2 is July 1 through June 30, 2014, and will cost $130,000. Staff recommends that the council authorize this plan.
The final management report is to award the wastewater treatment plant head-works/bar-screen project construction bid. Approval of that item would result in the additional expenditure of $280,000 of previously unbudgeted wastewater funds.
