Here's an overview of what was discussed at last week's city council meeting.
The King City City Council discussed the following topics at its Wednesday, Feb. 7 meeting: The council is planning to update the city's master fees — meaning fees paid for utilities, business permits and other city-provided resources. The city has not adjusted its fees since 2006. The business registration fee likely will be lowered from $175 to $150, to make it commensurate with other fees in the area. The council voted to do more research into how fees work in surrounding communities, and planned to revisit the issue at its Feb. 21 meeting. The council received the city's fiscal audit report for the fiscal year of 2016-17. Hannah Sirpless, who presented the report on behalf of Pauly, Rogers and Co. CPA, told the council that "overall, King City's management did a great job … as far as such a small office, I know the team does as good a job as it can. Overall, this is a clean audit." The full report is in the council agenda packet, which should be posted to the city's website soon. The council voted to donate $500 to King City's first annual Mayor Golf Tournament, which is scheduled for Sunday, April 29. The council looked over and discussed an agreement between the city and civil engineering firm Shea, Carr & Jewell Inc. The firm will provide traffic and transportation analysis services related to King City's plan to expand its urban growth boundary.
