Webster City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Wednesday, September 06, 2017

Webster City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to propose a property tax rate of $0.31725 per $100 valuation and schedule public hearings for September 19 and September 26 to receive comments on the proposed tax rate.

The proposed rate exceeds the effective tax rate of $0.29247 per $100 valuation, but does not exceed the rollback tax rate. Therefore, the tax rate, if adopted, would provide additional revenues to the city compared to the previous tax year, based on existing properties on the tax rolls. The city council may adopt a lower rate than the proposed rate, but may not exceed the proposed rate.

The city council voted 5-1, with Martin Graves opposed, to approve, on first reading, an ordinance adopting the proposed planned development guidelines for an apartment complex for residents ages 55 and older, to be located at 1427 FM 528.

A public hearing was held prior to consideration of the item. Mariposa Clear Creek, LP is developer of the proposed apartment complex. No members of the public requested to address the city council during the public hearing.

The city council voted 5-0-1, with Edward Laperye abstaining, to adopt a resolution approving an investment policy and authorizing investment officers to engage in financial transactions on behalf of the city, effective October 1 through September 30.

The city council voted 4-1-1, with Mayor Donna Rogers opposed and Lapeyre abstaining, to award a contract for bank depository services to Wells Fargo Bank for a three-year term from January 1, 2018 to December 21, 2020.

The contract also includes two additional one-year options.

The city council voted unanimously to approve a contract with the Clear Lake Emergency Medical Corps for dispatching services.

The city council voted unanimously to approve a 90-day extension of the lease agreement with CLEMC for CLEMC to remain in the city facility at 104 Pennsylvania. The extension is for a monthly lease fee of $500.

The city council voted unanimously to approve a two-year contract with Acadian EMS for emergency medical and other services.

The city council voted unanimously to cancel the first scheduled city council meeting for October 3.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. Council Member Larry Tosto was absent. Agenda
