Harmony City Council revisits TIF District during public hearing


Sat, Feb 12th, 2011
Posted in Government

Mike Bubany, of David Drown Associates, was at the Harmony City Council meeting to explain the modifications to TIF District #1. There was a public hearing for the modifications, but there were no residents present.

Bubany explained that the TIF District that is older (from 1985), and, therefore, is not subject to as many rules and regulations as the others. This district has been a good asset for the city as there has been some flexibility in the funds. Bubany said the city needs to modify the district to expand the capital outlay portion of the budget.

There have been some items recently that have put the city over the capital outlay portion of the budget, such as the 3rd Street project, and the Commercial Rehab program. The modifications will increase the capital outlay budget from $1,040,000 to $3,113,212. This will ensure the projects keep the city within the budget.

This amendment will adjust the bonding capacity of the TIF district and increase estimated capital project costs, but it will not add property to the district.

The resolution to modify the TIF District was passed.

Building and Maintenance

City maintenance employee Chris Johnson updated the council on repairs done to the compressors at the wastewater treatment plant. He said the repairs cost $600, and they are now working well.

Johnson also asked about purchasing a garage door opener for a door at the shop. City Administrator Jerome Illg explained that they bought a garage door opener for the other door a few months ago, and it has worked well. He added that in order to get in the door and use the tractors and boom truck, the men have had to get out of their vehicles, and they have slipped and fallen on the steep, slippery driveway. He recommended the council purchase the same garage door opener from the same company that sold them the last one. The council approved.

Parking Ordinance

Council member Dan Tieffenbacher suggested a minor modification to the winter odd/even street parking ordinance. His recommendation was to change the wording to include trailers and campers. The council approved changing the words to read, "No vehicle or personal property parked or left on the street."

Illg mentioned the fact that there are sometimes contractors doing in work in town who leave their trailers on the streets for the duration of the project. He mentioned an upcoming major project at the Harmony Manor. There was s .....
