LEMOORE — The Lemoore City Council will pack a lot into its regular meeting Tuesday before an almost two-month-long hiatus, including ceremonial presentations, three public hearings and five items of discussion in new business.
Before the regular meeting, council will hold a study session at 5:30 p.m. discussing the Kings Economic Development Corporation and give an update on economic development in the city. Council will then go into closed session to confer with legal counsel on existing and anticipated litigation.
During the regular open session meeting, council will have two ceremonial presentations. Mayor Ray Madrigal will present an appreciation of service to a veteran, and Lemoore Police Chief Darrell Smith will recognize the department’s Explorer program.
There will be three public hearings during Tuesday’s meeting. One public hearing will discuss a request by Lennar Homes for annexation of 40 acres into the city, located at the northeast corner of Hanford-Armona Road and Avenue 18¾.
Another public hearing will be an assessment of an annual levy for Landscape and Lighting District zones and Public Facilities Maintenance District zones. A third public hearing will discuss the master user fee schedule.
In new business, council will discuss:
- Amending the declaration of covenants, conditions and restrictions on one of the city’s parcel maps.
- Replacement of the Lemoore Police Department command post.
- Position allocation for city departments.
- Consolidation of city services.
- Request for financial assistance to construct Venture Place road and all other infrastructure required for a private business park development.
Council’s July 4 meeting will be canceled due to the holiday, and the July 18 and Aug. 1 meetings will be canceled as well. Council will resume regular meetings on Aug. 15.
