At Wednesday night’s council workshop session, which starts at 6 p.m., the city plans to discuss communicating with the public regarding the upcoming Bamboozle music festival under an agenda item reading “Schedule Bamboozle Public Awareness Meetings.”
In addition, the governing body is scheduled to discuss in closed executive session unspecified amendments to its festival contract with Bamboozle promoter Live Nation .
Also on the 6 p.m. workshop agenda is a presentation of beach badge art from the arts organization ArtsCap; a Main Street two-hour parking ordinance; an ordinance regarding dogs on the beachfront; and transportation center leases. Workshop items are for discussion.
At the regular meeting slated to begin at 7 p.m., a vote is scheduled on a resolution to purchase a Ford Explorer via state contract. The council is also scheduled to vote on a resolution involving county mosquito spraying, and a Department of Justice Grant for $31,590.
The council could also vote on a resolution to amend the 2012 municipal budget — if they have received state transitional aid numbers by tomorrow night’s meeting. As of today, they had not yet received the numbers.
In addition, a public hearing is scheduled on an ordinance granting air rights for a marquee to be built at the new location for the ShowRoom independent movie theater at 707 Cookman Avenue. The council can vote on the measure after the hearing. The ordinance is required for the Showroom project to proceed because the marquee would extend over the city’s sidewalk right-of-way, according to Donald Sammet, the city’s director of planning and redevelopment.
Aside from the amendments to the Bamboozle agreement, city officials in the closed executive session will also discuss a plan for the board of education to share services for police patrols in the middle school area, as well as the Springwood Commons redevelopment project. Only discussion can take place in a closed executive session, which normally involves such items as contract negotiations, litigation and personnel matters. Formal actions must occur in the open session.
