The Oakdale City Council had a packed agenda on Tuesday night. The previous meeting, on Jan. 3, had only one item on the agenda due to the city’s limited holiday hours. The Jan. 17 meeting, however, picked up the slack with more action items than usual before the council.
Both January meetings were pushed to Tuesdays from the normal Monday night gathering. The first was Jan. 3, as Jan. 2 was the holiday for New Year’s and the Jan. 17 session was on Tuesday because Martin Luther King Day fell on the normal Monday meeting time, Jan. 16. The meeting was held after The Leader went to press.
Council was scheduled to approve and introduce a new Interim Police Chief and members were scheduled to hear a project peer review report regarding the Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrades. The peer review was the last step in the process of upgrading the facility.
The council also was slated to discuss finances, with a review of the general fund from Fiscal Year 2010-2011. They also were to hear a first quarter report from this fiscal year. Also anticipate was a move by the council to take the first steps in dissolving its Redevelopment Agency, as required by a recent California Supreme Court ruling.
