City Council to hear audit report

January 17, 2022

The City Council of Webster City will review the 2020-2021 city audit Monday night as they meet in regular session.

The public can join the 6 p.m. meeting by logging onto the Zoom platform, using the meeting ID 865 2916 0226. The meeting will also be live streamed on the city Facebook Page.

The audit report will be presented by a representative of Williams & Company P.C., the firm conducting the audit.

The council is also expected to discuss policies concerning donations to non-profit groups. According to a memo from City Attorney Zach Chizek, the state auditor has recently been reviewing the donation policies for various communities concerning contributions of this nature.

The sale of city-owned real estate in Brewer Creek Estates to Mulley Land Company of Goldfield will also be considered Monday night. The city has received a residential purchase agreement for Lot 15 in Brewer Creek estates Fifth Addition, with the council expected to authorize the mayor and city clerk to execute the warranty deed.

The council will consider a resolution to authorize Assistant City Manager Biridiana Bishop to submit an application to the Iowa Economic Development Authority Downtown Housing Grant Program for the development of two two-bedroom apartments at 637 Second St. Wright Capital LLC, the developer, contacted the city in December requesting city support for the project application to building the apartments above the existing commercial space. The IEDA Downtown Housing Grant is a new grant that stemmed from the American Rescue Plan Act funds which were allocated towards housing.

A resolution which would establish fees for city speeding violations and other motor vehicle violations will be considered.

A request from the street department to seek bids for the purchase of a built water station along with the authorization to purchase if the bids come in under budget will be reviewed.

Prior to the beginning of the council meeting, the fair housing board, composed of City Council members will meet to elect a chairperson and vice chair before adjourning.

At the close of the general meeting, the council is expected to go into closed session to conduct City Manager Daniel Ortiz-Hernandez’s performance evaluation.
