A public hearing at the 4:30 p.m. council workshop discusses the proposed adoption of modifications of the city’s TIF districts Nos. 1 and 4. City Administrator Larry Hansen said the TIF proposal allows the city to spend that money throughout the city.
The council’s Truth in Taxation presentation occurs during the 7 p.m. session, along with possible adoptions of the 2013 city budget and tax levy.
Another scheduled public hearing regards the new National Guard Armory and central Fire Station facilities. Items specifically considered include annexation of property, rezoning and an ordinance regarding the rezoning, and special use permits for the Armory and fire station.
Also on the council agenda is possible approval of findings-of-fact related to the demolition of the single-family homes on St. Paul Lutheran Church property. The church requested a demolition permit for the two properties that the council denied in October to allow the Historic Preservation Committee to see if the structures had historical significance. Decisions are expected in February or March.
Possible approval of a second reading on the ordinance regarding changes to the liquor law is also on the council agenda, along with updates on the event survey, Lift Bridge schedule and an extension request from David Paradeau regarding removal of the Minnesota Zephyr engine in downtown Stillwater.
