At meeting Wednesday, focus of council will be on business|
The Antigo Common Council will act on two resolutions focused on business and industrial improvement issues Wednesday.
Aldermen will convene at 6 p.m. in the chambers at City Hall.
Leading the agenda will be authorizing a developer’s agreement with Wetterau Wood Products, which is constructing a 1,152 square foot office adjacent to its wood processing plant.
The company is asking the city to provide up to $5,500 in assistance to connect to the sanitary sewer and water mains existing on the Deleglise Street right-of-way, approximately 15 feet underground.
Aldermen are expected to give the new Antigo First program, formed by a group of downtown business owners, a boost through the infusion of $3,000 taken from the economic development portion of the Hotel/Motel Room Tax funds.
The resolution notes that the group has not yet been able to establish a funding mechanism and needs money in order to effectively move forward.
Aldermen will also take action on a new employee manual, replacing the variety of policies and procedures that were previously the focus of union negotiations.
Under the state’s Act 10 legislation, most municipal employee unions, with the exception of police and fire, lost the ability to negotiate most aspects of wages and working conditions, requiring changes in the policies for the management of employees.
The handbook has been reviewed by the city’s labor attorney and reviewed by the council as a committee of the whole.
In other business aldermen will:
—consider waiving the $25 fee for the Optimist Club Halloween parade.
—pass a resolution in support of Langlade Hospital’s community health needs assessment action plan, seeking opportunities through land use, permitting, zoning, planning and use of facilities to offer health activity choices.
—review the various permits for the Badgerland Classics car show slated in Peaceful Valley and for a block/anniversary party at Vickie and the Vets, both this weekend.
—amend the job description for the land surveyor/project manager to include additional responsibilities and higher compensation.
—transfer funds from Tax Incremental Finance District No. 6, which has been performing well, to the underperforming TIF No. 3, That will lessen the need for the city to contribute to TIF 3’s debt service.
—and ink a series of licenses including Steve Welnetz, Antigo Taxi; Kemmer Industries, second article dealer; El Tequila, amend the premise description to include an outside dining area; and Vickie and the Vets, amend the description to include all land on the premise for alcohol consumption.
