LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Lakeport City Council this week is set to consider giving final approval to a new marijuana cultivation ordinance and the city's new 2013-14 budget.
The council will meet beginning at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, in the council chambers at Lakeport City Hall, 225 Park St.
The council will hold a public hearing as part of its second reading of the final draft of its proposed medical marijuana cultivation ordinance, which received the council's unanimous approval at its May 21 meeting, as Lake County News has reported.
The proposed ordinance, which city officials said is meant to be complaint-driven, prohibits outdoor cultivation and requires grows to be contained in accessory outdoor structures.
The council also will consider approval of resolutions to adopt the Fiscal Year 2013- 2014 and Establishing the Fiscal Year 2013-2014 Appropriations Limit.
The proposed budget for the coming fiscal year has $14.42 million in revenue and $16.72 million in total expenditures, according to the document.
In other council business, Planning Services Manager Andrew Britton will introduce to the council a proposed ordinance to revise regulations pertaining to mobile catering businesses as well as a fee resolution.
Police Chief Brad Rasmussen will ask for approval of a contract between the city and county of Lake for an upgrade for the police department's server, and Public Works Director Mark Brannigan will seek support for a proposed increase to the commercial sewer allotment from eight units to 10 units.
The council also will discuss allowing Zumba instructor Melissa Maberry to utilize Library Park and the Gazebo to conduct Zumba classes and will conduct a public hearing to review the Community Development Block Grant #09-EDEF-6531 VII.
On the consent agenda, which includes items that are not considered controversial and which usually are accepted on one vote, are ordinances; minutes; warrants; a resolution authorizing the city manager to execute documents on behalf of the City of Lakeport for CDBG Grant #09-EDEF-6531; and a letter of support for the appointment of Lakeport Finance Director Dan Buffalo to the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee.
