At Tuesday’s meeting, the Council:
- discussed a proposal that would create a Consolidated Reporting Ordinance that would require regular updates or reports from the Administration to the Council on various topics. The goal is to gather all the reporting information into one easy-to-reference location, enhance transparency, and add clarity to the process of sharing information. The Council will consider updating the ordinance over the coming months as related topics come to the Council.
- held a follow-up discussion about a proposed $1.3 million Housing Trust Fund loan for developers to rehabilitate the Lincoln Tower complex. The loan would help maintain the safety of 95 existing units of senior housing located at 2017 South Lincoln Street and guarantee affordability for the next 55 years. The Council is expected to take action on Tuesday, April 23.
- received an update from the Department of Public Utilities about the City’s water supply projections for the coming year, as well as the status of water runoff and snowpack.
