Council Authorizes Low-Income Discount Program

By 12th Moon, 

Council President

Previous to our regular Council meeting on July 13, our Treasurer, Art Godin, led a finance primer for our new Councilmembers. Welcoming Lauryn Beltz-Member to her first meeting since being elected in April, we went around the room introducing ourselves and Councilmembers present declared any possible conflicts of interest they may have.

Our Interim General Manager (IGM), Brandon Kane, made a request during his monthly IGM Report that Council remove the contingency requirement of a previously approved authorization to contract to have market and site survey work performed relevant to our purchasing the 700 West Buffalo Street location. After some questions and discussions we penned a proposal to remove the restriction and allow the research to begin. Previously we had asked the IGM to wait until the closing on the property was completed, but having met all of the contingencies regarding the purchase already, and with the expected delays of coordinating all of the necessary legal documentation, we decided that it would not be to our benefit to wait any longer, risking the chance that we would miss our window of opportunity with the research team’s schedule.
