ITEM 9: 2020-21 Budget DiscussionCouncil started its first formal look at the complete proposed 2020-21 budget with discussion and questions of staff at the last Council meeting.  Individual budgets discussed at this meeting included the remaining departments: Police,  Municipal Court, Community Development, Technology and CVB   Also covered were projected capital projects.  Discussion only.

ITEM 10: Water/Sewer Rate Study- The city’s auditor has advised that the sewer/water fund should be self-sustaining and not dependent upon contributions from the Municipal Development District (MUD) for repair or construction of infrastructure needs.
