Chatfield sets preliminary levy and budget for 2013


Fri, Sep 14th, 2012
Posted in Chatfield Government

City Clerk Joel Young stated at the council’s September 10 meeting that the proposed levy increase is now at 4.8 percent, down from a few weeks ago. A total of ten thousand was removed from the preliminary budget of which $5,000 reduced the levy and $5,000 was added to the sewer subsidy to give a little relief to sewer rate payers. Councilor Josh Thompson was absent.

The preliminary budget and levy public hearing will be at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, December 10, 2012, in the city council chambers.

Outlot B

The Public Works Committee over the last six months or so has worked through a process with neighboring property owners to sell most of the outlot to adjacent property owners. The city does not have an easy access to the property nor does it properly care for the property. There have been two neighborhood meetings. Pricing plans have been reviewed with the adjacent neighbors. The property came to the city through developer donations.

Most neighbors have been in favor of the proposal, but two are dissatisfied with the pricing and one has been opposed to selling land near the retention pond.

Young suggested it might be best just to sell the grassy area and not the wooded area. Councilor Paul Novotny said they may need to keep a portion of the outlot for an alternative route for maintenance of the retention pond. Mayor Don Hainlen said they have had a long, thoughtful process and felt it would be prudent to keep the wooded area for another access to the retention pond.

The council voted to move ahead with a survey of the grassy area.
