Turlock City Council Meeting Agenda 06-26-12

Tuesday evening, the Turlock City Council will have their regularly scheduled meeting at 7pm, which will be held at City Hall, located at 156 S. Broadway. Before the regularly scheduled City Council meeting, the Local Government Commission will be holding a free community event featuring special guest speaking Joe Minicozzi who will be sharing his presentation “The Dollars and Sense of Downtown Development" from 5:30pm to 7pm at City Hall.

Turlock Police Chief Rob Jackson will give the Police Annual Report during the City Council Meeting.

The Council will consider amending Turlock Municipal Code Title 3, Chapter 1, Article 6 regarding Dance Hall Permits. The City of Turlock Police Department is currently responsible for receiving and processing annual applications for Dance Hall Permits. Currently, the applications are processed through a background investigation to determine adherence to Turlock municipal code and State and Federal Law. Once the background process is completed, a recommendation for Approval or Denial is provided to the City Council for final determination.

The recommended amendment to the Turlock Municipal Codes removes the necessity of the City Council review for Dance Hall permits and relieves the applicants/customers of the additional unnecessary processes associated with Council preparation and presentation. The Police Department would continue to be responsible for vetting applications and completing adequate and complete investigatory, background, audit and records procedures to ensure compliance in the management of permitting processes for Dance Hall permits.

The Council will also consider making the same changes to Fortune Telling Permits and Dating and Escort Services Permits, as to remove the final Council review, leaving the application process solely with the Turlock Police Department.

Also for consideration is a resolution to supersede certain fees for City services and adopting Cost Recovery Percentages and schedule of Fees and Charges for City Recreational Services. This resolution contains the fees charged by the Park, Recreation and Public Facilities Division for programs, as well as rental charges for City parks and facilities. The Recreation program fees have been adjusted to account for the increasing costs of providing the programs, along with the rental charges for City Parks and other facilities to reflect associated costs.

The Council will also be looking at renewing various contracts, including insurance coverage for Employment Practices Liability Insurance, Workers’ Compensation Insurance, Health Insurance, Life Insurance and Long Term Disability coverage, insurance coverage for Property Programs, and maintaining insurance coverage for Employee Bonds.

In Closed Session, the City Council will hold a performance evaluation of City Attorney Phaedra Norton.
