Reconfiguration of downtown parking to be discussed at council meeting

Fourteen different resolutions are scheduled to be brought before the Douglas City Council, Wednesday, at their monthly meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. in City Hall.

One of the resolutions calls for the authorization of the reconfigurement of certain parking areas in the downtown historic area.

Winners of the Christmas Light Parade that was held in November will also be recognized as will police chief Kraig Fullen, fire chief Kevin Lomeli along with eight different businesses.

In all, there are 25 items on the agenda.

Some of the action items on the agenda are a carry-over from the December meeting when a verbiage glitch prevented them from being discussed at the council meeting.

Two of the items are for ordinances, one of which deals with the sale of land located on the 900 block of Second Street to Joseph L. and Maria de la Cruz Garcia. The second ordinance deals with adjusting the fees for the Douglas Visitors Center in order to recover operating costs.

Another one of the resolutions seeks the approval of providing certain election supplies and services for the City’s Primary and General Elections, scheduled for March 10 and May 19, 2020 respectively. A resolution for the Community Development Block Grant annual performance and evaluation report for fiscal year 2018-2019 is on the agenda, while another resolution calls for the promoting of rail service in the region as a means to increase tourism and foster economic development in the city.

Another resolution allows for the execution of a non-exclusive license agreement between the City of Douglas and Helping Ourselves Pursue Enrichment, Inc. (H.O.P.E. Inc) for a licensee to use a portion of the improved city-owned facility at 661 G Avenue.

One of the resolutions scheduled to be brought before the council calls for the authorization of an intergovernmental agreement between the City and the Douglas Unified School District for the purpose of providing paramedic/EMT and an animal control internship and externship experience to high school students in Douglas.
