Assistant Council Auditor Janice Billy reviewed the marked committee agenda which included 17 items to be deferred, 15 items ready for action and 23 items to be read a second time and re-referred. Ms. Billy stated that with regard to Ordinance 2008-538 authorizing an amended and restated landfill operation agreement with Trail Ridge Landfill Inc., the Auditor’s Office received a revised agreement last Friday afternoon and has not had time to complete a thorough review of the document. With regard to Ordinance 2008-578 declaring surplus property at 103rd Street and Old Middleburg Road, Bob Williams of the Real Estate Division stated that the bill waives an Ordinance Code provision to allow the proceeds from the sale of the property to be deposited into a recreational land acquisition fund rather than being deposited into the 5-Year Road Projects account.
Ms. Billy anticipates that Kerri Stewart, Deputy Chief Administrative Officer, will be present to address Ordinance 2008-682 regarding feeding of the homeless by religious organizations and that she will request emergency action on the bill. She noted that Ordinance 2008-372 conveying surplus property to Operation New Hope for affordable housing purposes was deferred in the Rules Committee this morning and the Chairman indicated it would be deferred in Finance as well.
There will be two additional items after the conclusion of the regular agenda. Millie Reeves of Human Resources will discuss the timetable for procurement of next year’s employee health insurance plan and Lisa Rinaman of the Mayor’s Office will give an update on the preparations for Tropical Storm Fay.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 1:40 p.m.
