CDBG program income to be discussed
Lindsay City Council will hear a proposal to allow CDBG money to be used
The completion of a well project will be discussed at Tuesday night’s Lindsay City Council meeting.
The council will hear a proposal by Mike Camarena, City Services director, to discuss a waiver to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program to use up to $50,000 from the Business Assistance Revolving Loan Program income to complete an agricultural well.
So far the city has spent $1,889,000 on the completion of two effluent pipeline projects for California Citrus Pulp, Inc, (CCPI) and Vita Pak, Inc. A remaining balance of $111,000 is set to help complete the cost of the third phase of this well. However, Camarena, and city staff, has estimated the cost of the total replacement to be around $134,685. If approved the money would be awarded to Valley Pump and Dairy systems, from Tulare, to complete the project.
Also on the agenda is the possible construction of horseshoe pits by the Orange Blossom Festival Committee. It has approved $7,500 to pay for the construction of four horseshoe pits and an arbor in the vicinity of these pits. They will be located north of the newly constructed Sierra View Street.
Other business includes a selection of voting delegates to the 2012 League of California Cities Conference, which will be presented by Mayor Ed Murray, and a Southern California Edison activities report by Cal Rossi, SCE region manager.
The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday in Council Chambers at Lindsay City Hall, at 251 E. Honolulu.
