Chairman Dennis called the meeting to order and asked the attendees to introduce themselves. Mr. Dennis reviewed the Auditor’s marked agenda which included 5 items marked for deferral, 8 items ready for action (1 requested for emergency action) and 23 items for second reading and re-referral. He announced that Deputy General Counsel Peggy Sidman will give the monthly Loblolly Wetlands Mitigation Bank update at the beginning of the meeting.
In response to a question from Council Member Schellenberg, Stephanie Burch, Director of the Neighborhoods Department, gave a brief explanation of the request for emergency action on Ordinance 2017-552 (authorizing execution of a second land donation agreement with Kairos SIP Construction). The City’s previous land donation agreement with Kairos has expired and the company wants to renew the agreement so as to be in a position to make a proposal to the City for project gap funding when an RFP for use of Foreclosure Registry funds is issued in the near future.
