City Administrator’s weekly memo, Friday 5/28/10

Joel-WalinskiThe “Friday Memo,” written by Northfield City Administrator Joel Walinski and various department heads and other City staff, summarizes the staff and department activities for the week. The Friday memos are published and archived in PDF form at the bottom of the City Administrator’s web page.

This week’s memo includes:

  • Issuing notice of a public hearing on June 15 on capital improvement bonds and the capital improvement plan (CIP)  regarding the City’s “ intention to issue general obligation capital improvement plan bonds in an amount not to exceed $14,400,000.”
  • Info on how Northfield compares to some other cities in terms of levies and aid cuts.
  • Details about a joint public-private partnership for yet another  “community video” for Northfield, to be used… how? where? why? to what end?  I dunno, but let’s throw some money at it because it seemed like a good idea at the time, and apparently there’s no one on City staff who remembers the dismal result the last time the City tried something like this without more of a plan.
  • Updates on the Fourth Street improvement/infrastructure project.
  • Update and disclaimer from the IT department regarding the City_of_Nfld_PR account on Twitter.
  • News from the library about the summer reading program.

You can find the Friday Memo on the memo page for the week.

The schedule is a bit off this week since Monday is a holiday. There is a City Council meeting on Tuesday, and a Planning Commission work session on Wednesday (moved up from Thursday because the Commission is finalizing information for the Council meeting packet for the June 8 meeting and staff needed the extra day for prep).

You can view all upcoming City meetings on the City Calendar.

Thanks to those of you who’ve responded by commenting on my previous posts about the Friday Memo. I’m back in the saddle with the weekly Friday Memo posts… at least for now. 🙂
