The Nevada City Council voted 3-1 during a special council meeting Wednesday night at 9, with Jayne Novak, voting no, to give final approval to increasing the amount of financing for the new public safety facility from $4.1 million to $4.9 million. The increase in funding is to provide adequate money for the city to include a dispatch center in the facility in case the city were to need to take over its own dispatching again.
City Manager JD Kehrman has said that he would prefer to continue to have the Western Missouri 911 Dispatch Center handle dispatch services. However, since there is a possibility a funding issue for the center may not be solved, he cannot afford to not ask for the additional funding.
Tuesday night, the Nevada City Council will have their first meeting of December and will conduct a public hearing on the city's 2013 budget, followed by the first reading of an ordinance to approve the budget.
The council also will conduct a public hearing on the city's water and sewer rates and will consider ordinances setting the rates for the city's water and sewer service.
Other items under consideration will be the city's 2013 street construction projects, an ordinance declaring four city vehicles as surplus property and a contract with Trout, Beeman & Co. P.C. to conduct the city's 2012 annual audit.
The council also will consider an ordinance establishing the fee structures at several parks facilities, including: the Frank E. Peters Municipal Golf Course, the Twin Lakes Sports Complex, the Walton Aquatic Center, the Franklin P. Norman City/County Community Center and shelters located in Nevada parks.
Other items on Tuesday night's agenda include a consideration of bids for a sewer camera, and the second readings of an ordinance releasing the NID assessment for lot 7, Barton's Meadow addition, an ordinance approving the taxi coupon rates and the reappointment of Cathy Hissink to her second term on the NRMC board of directors.
