On Tuesday, January 8th, the Turlock City Council of Turlock will be holding their first meeting of the 2013 year at 7pm at City Hall, located at 156 S. Broadway.
The Council will begin the meeting by appointing new members to various commissions and positions. These appointments include: Vice Mayor, Planning Commission, Parks, Recreation and Community Programs Commission, Arts Commission Alternate Member, The Alliance, Stanislaus Council of Governments (StanCOG), League of California Cities, Central Valley Division, Executive Committee, Regional Surface Water Supply Project Advisory Committee, City of Turlock/Turlock Unified School District Joint Meetings, and a Stanislaus County Economic Development Action Committee (EDAC) Alternate Member.
The Council will also consider approving a request to obtain proposals for professional consulting services to assist in the preparation of a Water Rate Study.
Additonally, the Council will decide whether or not to approve a request to appropriate $15,000 to the “Turlock Partnership Incentives Program” account from the General Fund reserve balance for the Partnership Incentives Program.
The Partnership Incentive Program was begun in the fiscal year 2011-2012. During that year, ten businesses participated in the program. Following development of a business plan and compliance with minor regulatory requirements, businesses locating in a vacant commercial or industrial building could receive $1,000 for use as they see fit to enhance their businesses.
City staff believes there is a continuing interest in the program and that an additional allocation of fund will generate additional businesses and jobs in the community. The Council, however, could elect not to provide additional financial support for the Partnership Incentives Program.
