Vacating easements for a Genentech project, new commission appointments, design standards for the downtown and a 2007-08 general fund budget are on Tuesday's Dixon City Council agenda.
A public hearing is to be scheduled for July 24 to discuss possible relinquishment of light and air easements and a portion of a right-of-way for a Genentech biotech research facility to be built at 2727 Fitzgerald Drive.
Meanwhile, the mayor has made appointments to vacancies on three commissions. The council will have final approval of those appointments. Kay Fulfs Cayler, Chris Duncan and Wayne Williams have been appointed to the Planning Commission for terms that expire June 30, 2011.
Robert Dohr and Robert Sperry have been appointed to the Parks and Recreation Commission for terms that expire June 30, 2009. Salvador Torres is to serve an unexpired term on the Parks and Recreation Commission until June 30, 2008. Giovanna Camacho is to serve as a student representative on the Parks and Recreation Commission until June 30, 2008.
Thomas Bradley, Russ Cayler and Joan Schindel have been appointed to the Transportation Advisory Commission. Their terms will expire June 30, 2011.
The Downtown Dixon Business Association would like the council to approve new architectural design guidelines and a special downtown zoning district.
The Planning Commission considered a proposal to amend the Zoning Ordinance in response to the downtown association's request. It unanimously chose to recommend to the City Council the approval of the amendments to the zoning ordinance that creates a Central Commercial District.
In other action, the council will have the option to adopt a resolution approving the 2007-08 General Fund Budget.
In addition to spending less than planned during the current fiscal year, the city has collected more revenue than expected. The City Council has been given a preliminary General Fund budget of $14.9 million for the next fiscal year, with $17.3 million in estimated available resources.
The current fiscal year of 2006-07, is projected to end on a high note, bringing in $17.2 million in revenue - $1.1 million more than anticipated. The city, in contrast to its projections for 2006-07, expects to have spent $293,203 less by June 30, the end of the current fiscal year.
Other matters the council will discuss Tuesday include disapproving the Jackson Square project that proposed to subdivide the 2.57-acres into 42 parcels, including 40 townhome sites, one common area of 1.51 acres and one vacant parcel of .11 of an acre.
Vice Mayor Michael Smith would like to discuss residential curbside recycling to be provided by the Dixon Sanitary Service.
Councilman Michael Alexander would also like to discuss a possible $5,000 contribution from the city to this year's Lambtown festival on July 28 at Hall Park.
The City Council meets at 7 p.m. in the Council Chamber, 600 East A St.
