Wells and conflict of interest code on Council agenda
Well work and a conflict of interest code update are on the agenda for the Merced City Council Monday.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the Council Chamber on the second floor of the Merced Civic Center, (City Hall), 678 W. 18th St. The Council meets the first and third Mondays of the month, except when there is a holiday, when it meets the following day.
Council will consider a contract for $115,853 for Quad Knopf, Inc., for engineering design services at three municipal well sites. The contract will go towards improvements for three above ground water well sites in the City.
Also on the agenda is a resolution for Council to update the City's Conflict of Interest Code. The Political Reform Act requires City's to amend the Code to add or delete positions that are subject to provisions of the act. For example, the recently created Arts and Culture Advisory Commission was added to the list that must have members submit statements of economic interest.
The Council will hold a special meeting at 3 p.m. in the Council Chambers to hear an appeal on a cannabis business permit.
The Council will meet in closed session at 5:30 p.m. to meet with labor negotiators.
