Next City Council Meeting on Thursday, July 10th at 7pm

Reminder – PGA Waterfront Workshop, tomorrow, Tuesday July 8th at 6pm

The next City Council Meeting will be this Thursday, July 10th at 7pm at City Hall.

Here are some highlights:

  • Consent agenda: Resolution 45, 2014 provides a grant/tax refund incentive of up to $36K to Medytox Solutions, Inc., providing the company moves its headquarters to Palm Beach Gardens and creates 60 new full-time jobs.
  • Public Hearings (regular agenda) includes:
    • Resolution 38, 2014 – which sets a proposed max millage for the 2014/2015 budget.  This rate can be lowered at the September budget hearings.  Note that while millage would be slightly lower, this would still represent a 6.14% increase in property taxes!
    • Resolution 42, 2014 which changes the charges and fee schedules for the upcoming year
    • Resolution 48, 2014 –  would allow a Special Referendum to be placed on the November ballot should Palm Beach Gardens Needs Term Limits meet all necessary schedules and petition criteria.
    • Appointments to the Art in Public Places (AIPP) and Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board (PZAB) boards
    • 2nd Reading on several ordinances and associated resolutions including prohibition on dog/cat retail sales, zoning changes, and amendments to the Palm Beach Gardens Police Officers’ Retirement Plan
  • Under items for Council Action/Discussion is the annual City Manager Evaluation – postponed from June’s meeting, and a discussion of Gas Station Signage.

We get the government we deserve – and it’s up to us to watch what they do.  Hope you can make it.
