Routine items grace City Council agenda for Tuesday

Federal judge postpones court date


An approval of a special events liquor license and the final review of two proposed ordinances are just three of the items on the Craig City Council agenda for its Tuesday night meeting.

The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers of the Craig City Hall and addresses routine business.

The only outstanding item is a proposed executive session to discuss a property purchase.

Craig resident Fred Seibot approached city staff asking if the city would be interested in purchasing property between the Golden Cavvy and the Alice Pleasant Park downtown. Seibot allows the property to be used for parking and events held at the downtown park.

He hopes to sell it, but the property has not be listed publicly. It has only been offered to the city.

"He would sell it if the city is interested," City Manager Jim Ferree told Council members. "He has an asking price in mind, but I don't know what it is. He would rather sell it to us than anyone else if we're interested."

The property extends about 100-feet from the Golden Cavvy.

Council members have not said for sure whether they intend to purchase the property. The decision rests on Seibot's asking price.

What the city would do with it if purchased is still unknown.

In other business, the Council will:

Consider approving a special events liquor license permit for the Craig Elks Club for an Aug. 4 wedding reception.

Consider awarding the bid for the construction of sidewalk, curb and gutter work and the construction of a concrete apron at The Center of Craig.

Hear the second and final reading of Ordinance 887, which comprehensively amends the water regulations of the city.

Hear the second and final reading of Ordinance 890, which establishes the "City of Craig Water Activity Enterprise" fund. The city water fund has been run like an enterprise fund for several years. In an enterprise fund, all revenue pays for operations instead of draining the city general fund. Creating an enterprise fund officially cleans up city regulations and prevents the fund from being subject to Taxpayer's Bill of Rights (TABOR) revenue limitations.

Consider Resolution 7 which authorizes the sale of property to Mary Morris and authorizes the Mayor to sign all necessary documents. Several years ago, Morris purchased a piece of property from the city near the Sandrocks. It was later determined the state, not the city, owned the property. The city has been negotiating with the state to purchase the property so it could finalize the deal with Morris.

Approval of a pump station and structure for the Craig East and Glen Erie subdivisions.
