Public Hearings

• The final public hearing will be held to discuss which nonprofit organizations will be given . The City Council decided what they would fund at a meeting in March, this is the last chance to try and sway them.

• Also, the Council will discuss what to do with project funds for the complex, meant to be built on Olive Lane. In March 2011, the Council approved construction of the apartments, but a glitch in the process of environmental review led the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to deny the use of HUD funds in building the apartments.

The full funding for the project was acquired in December, so $471,427 is available for reallocation to another program or project.

The Council will decide whether to allocate the funds to the city's First Time Homebuyer Program, which would help an additional 12-18 families get homes and reduce inventory of unoccupied homes in the community.
