The agenda for the City Council meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 19, is relatively light, but one item on the Consent Calendar may be moved to Old Business and become open to public comment.
Consent Calendar items are usually passed on an up-or-down vote by the Council because they have already been discussed and open to public comment, often in an earlier council meeting.
Item 5.B is an ordinance amending the Municipal Code to add requirements regulating how private property owners must maintain, inspect, repair, replace, and test private sewer mains and laterals.
On first reading, February 4, Councilmember Gary Plass voted No, and it expected he will ask the item be removed from the Consent Calendar and reopened for public disscussion. Healdsburg Patch will publish an article examining this issue in greater depth shortly.
The complete agenda is below, and attached to this story as a PDF.
