City Council seat expected to be filled at Jan. 5 meeting
The City Council will meet in regular session at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 5, 2015 in Chambers at 2307 Barada St.
The Council is expected to appoint Anthony Nussbaum to represent the vacant 4th Ward seat. Nussbaum was recommended by Mayor Jerry Oliver at the Dec. 15 meeting.
Nussbaum was expected to be appointed at that meeting, but his voter registration was not up to date. He will join Council President Judy Murphy, Jim Wisdom, Don Ferguson, Steve Scholl, John Vaughn, Angie Nolte and Mike Dougherty on the Council.
The Council will also discuss and act on: the appointment of Mayor Oliver as Trustee of the City 457 Deferred Compensation Plan; special designated liquor license applications by Rick Lemerond of Lem’s Northvue Cafe for wedding receptions to be held at Prichard Auditorium on March 7, April 18, May 23 and June 13, 2015; contract for Exchange of Real Estate for the purpose of constructing a Horizontal Collector Well.
Last week, the Council voted unanimously to continue contributing monetary support to Economic Development and Growth Enterprises, Inc., with monthly payments “not to exceed $120,000 annually.” The agreement is in effect through December 2017.
