9. General Business –   All the General Business was added to the agenda at the beginning of the meeting.

 

9a. Rep. Kerr was introducing a bill that targets Littleton specifically on our setting of sewer rates.  Clark recommended that the Council hire a lobbyist to help Littleton on this bill.  Kerr wants to limit the cost to the outside users to the actual cost of service – to exclude the debt service leaving the burden of the debt to the citizens of Littleton adding an additional $3.8 to $4 million per year.

 

The cost for the lobbyist is not to exceed $15,000 for the entire session.  Motion passed 7/0.

 

9b. Update on Distance Restrictions on Liquor Licenses.  Cole was told that the staff is still receiving inputs from other cities.

 

9c. Red Light Ticketing System – Cole was told that this item would be coming back to Council in the form of an Ordinance in February.

 

13. Comments / Reports

Clark – Inquired about what to do about the vacancy on the Planning Commission.  It was decided to wait until the interviewing process in February to make another appointment.  The Planning Commission will move Linda Knufinke from alternate to a full member of the Commission.  Passed 7/0.

 

Mulvey asked if current members of the various boards and commissions would need to re-interview for reappointment.  Clark said that needed to be decided.  Mulvey did not think it was necessary.

 

Clark also brought up the 6 month review of the City Attorney.  It was a 7/0 vote to do her mid year review on the 20th of January.

 

Clark received a call from St. Timothy’s about a soup kitchen.  He asked if we already had one in Littleton and if so it might be better to have them help with that one.  Woods said they would survey the church’s to find out what is out there already.

COUNCIL WILL CONDUCT AN EXECUTIVE SESSION FOLLOWING THE REGULAR MEETING FOR LEGAL ADVICE REGARDING THE WATER FUND PURSUANT TO C.R.S. 24-6-402(4)(B).  They included another topic – the land fill where our sewage is dumped.
