Meeting this Monday

Dear ,

The next meeting of the Bennington City Council is this Monday, December 9. The full agenda is posted here. Highlights include:

ASIP fees: We'll revisit our discussion about fees charged on new home construction in developments just outside of the city's boundaries. Other cities in the metro area have implemented these fees, but Bennington has not. The revenue can be used for street and road improvements in and around the city, thereby reducing our over-reliance on property taxes paid by residents within city limits. This month we will review revenue projections based on potential fee rates, varying from 0.75 to 1.25 percent of a new home's value.

Sheriff's agreement: We'll vote on whether to extend the city's agreement with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office for patrolling the city. This temporary agreement has been in place while the city hired a new chief and began recruiting for two additional positions. We'll get an update Monday night on the hiring progress and see whether an extension with the Sheriff's Office is warranted.

156th Street: We'll get our monthly update on the 156th Street project.

Other updates: Finally, as with every meeting, we'll get monthly reports from the police chief, library director, and the head of parks and streets.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the city offices next to the library. As always, if you have any ideas, concerns, or questions about items on the agenda, please let me know.
