Decatur City Council workshop to precede meeting

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, August 16, 2014

The Decatur City Council will meet at 4 Monday afternoon to talk about the proposed budget for fiscal 2014-2015.

Specifically, they will look at capital, health care, the cost of living, additional personnel and miscellaneous items. A regular council meeting will follow at 6 p.m.

On the agenda for that meeting is a public hearing on the proposed property tax rate, scheduling hearings on the proposed budget, and a special use permit extension, requested by Double Creek Capital to facilitate the sale of property on Preskitt Road for a funeral home.

The council will also look at a replat request on Farm Road 51 South, also by Double Creek, and another one by the Wise County Water Supply District on 7.15 acres in the South Decatur Business Park addition.

Rounding out the agenda are a request for a parade permit for the Decatur High School homecoming procession on Sept. 19, and consideration of bids for health insurance for city employees – a key component in next year’s budget.
