Bay or Sono- ma County interests, The League of Cities Legislative Council repre- sents 486 cities with the goal of ad- vocating on behalf of them. Maacks would like to see all agency issues brought, before full Council at regularly noticed public meetings. "To make decisions with- out proper notice is not good for the people," he argued. "The two big words in council boot camp this January were transparency and ac- countability." He added, "We don't want to create a crisis and I think there are some issues with the state constitution." "I'm looking at the audience and we have six people in the audi- ence," responded Mayor Wolter. "The constituents elected us to make those tough "decisions." Councilmember Russell felt the issue was being overblown. She said supporting the agencies doesn't mean leaving all the deci- sion-making to them. To a reference Maacks made as to members of the community having concerns of be ' ing uninformed about past deci- sions in these matters, Palla responded, "I strongly object. I'm not aware it's happened in the past. I need a specific situation. We are transparent. We do represent the people. I feel if they had a concern they'd be here. I hear good things in the street, but I don't think they'll be shy [about telling us what they think]. They will show up for the Lighting and Landscape meeting." In the vote to endorse the Region- al Legislative Agendas Coun- cilmember Maacks was the lone nay vote. Other new business City council unanimously ap- proved a resolution to endorse the 350 iGrow Home and Garden Chal- lenge for 2011, scheduled for May 14-15. Councilmember Russell thanked Melanie Bagby and Mardi Grainger for transforming the Gar- den Oasis lot, and for teaching com- munity food production skills. Also discussed was a toolkit of incentives for new or expanding. businesses fromthe Economic De! velopment plan adopted in August• 2010. Councilmember Russell wanted the toolkit to speak the lan- guage of business with offerings such as "fast-track permitting" as opposed to statements about what has been done to make the city more business-friendly in the past. She will send Regor ideas such as ommuaicating: size. of, h,maket, which may go bevotd city limits.. Co,uncflrrfember Maacks wants' tle prfoi.0tocessl 'reamlined ot-. line and perhaps allowing pread- ing of fee payments. "We're competing with other cities, so we need a financial incentive," he said.

The district is also exploring the possibility of applying for Prop. 84 grant funds. Greg Isom of Isom arid Associates of Santa Rosa, attended last month's school board meeting to discuss the prospect. Prop. 84 is a park bond act that was passed in 2006. A major fundraising effort occurring right now is the sale of memorial bricks that will be placed in the center of the park. The Rotary Club committee, headed by Tillman, has already raised over $1300 in brick sales which range in price (based on size) from $50 to $500. The goal, according to Tillman, is to raise $35,000 for the park. All contribu- / tions are tax deductible because the money goes to the Rotary Club, which in turn is donating the money for the park. The effort has a website: It is possible to visit the website and order and pay for your brick on line: The bricks will be used in the center area of the park where the old fountain foundation remains. The committee will have a booth  at Wild West Day in Cloverdale on Saturday, May 21 and will also be present at Friday Night Live and the Farmer's Market this summer. The deadline to order your brick is July 1. For more information call Tiffany Kinsey at 894-1012• the plaza Saturday, May 14.

She is a political party official so she cannot participate in redistricting, but she is concerned that Sonoma County will be split or redirected under Woolsey's district and that Marin County will dominate. Councilmember Palla reports that we should take a position on FB286 to impose reforms on rede- velopment agencies, an alternative to eliminating them. He suggests writing letters of support. The League of Cities strongly opposes AB506 which prevents local gov- ernments from filing bankruptcy without state permission. Coun- cilmember Maacks was the only op- posing vote to writing letters in support before reading the entire position. Councilmember Cox reports he and other city representatives have had discussions with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University about lo- cating here.

The council vote was unanimously fn favor• Not surprisingly, there was no public comment. Additionally, Council was in full agreement on a resolution to amend the personnel system to revise one employee classification. The City Manager said increasing the Senior Planner position from .8 full-time equivalent to 1.0 full-time equiva- lent would allow the city to direct a small portion of the time to the gen- eral fund, and it assures qualified staff is always on-hand when de- velopment activity returns.

Audience member Nan- cy Turpen Lucas said she likes the subcommittee reports, but suggest- ed they be combined with the coun- cil member activity reports. Mayor Wolter suggested the approved minutes be added to the packet and the reports remain on the agenda. City Manager report • Progress is being made on the franchise negotiation with North Bay.
