Budget & Economic Development Committee passed adding criminal elements into the PROP and passed a registry program for rental units. This will be coming up in a future city council meeting
We got an update on the following items:
- Impact fee’s: the fee’s will be raised and there will be a graduated impact fee based on house size
- Water Re-Use: 40M gallons of treated water go back into the Neuse River every day, so the city is looking at options to use that water. The recommendations coming from this meeting include asking council to look at utility rates, adjusting to a tiered water rate system, and using elevated tank re-use. The committee was unable to agree on reviewing contracts for large water users.
- At a recent council retreat, there was discussion on economic development with the potential to create an alternate energy village using options created in Senate Bill 3.
- Portions of Hillborough Street maintenance have been handed over from NCDOT to Raleigh.
- There is now a new category for storm water fee’s fr homes over 4,000 sq. ft.
The group then went around the horn and discussed items in each neighborhood.
