Sewer Plan and Rates/Public Hearing

The City Council faces some difficult decisions about our waste water facilities and how to pay for them. More information about what’s going on with the sewer plant and sewer rates is available here.  Public hearings were held in Aug & Oct. Proposed increases for water, sewer, and system development charges will be on the agenda for City Council action at the November 16th regular meeting. Details about the rate analysis and proposals can be found in the October 19th City Council Meeting Archives.

2018 Tourism Funding Applications

Lodging taxes (also known as Hotel-Motel Taxes) are the sole source of revenue for the Tourism Fund.

Each year applications for funding are evaluated by a Tourism Advisory Committee. The 2018 tourism funding applications are due by 4 PM Tuesday, October 24, 2017. The application packages are available here.
