TWENTYNINE PALMS CITY COUNCIL PART 1 OF 2: AN AUDIT AND PUBLIC PRAYER

Dan Stork broke his report on a wide-ranging Twentynine Palms City Council meeting into two parts. Today: Drag racing, a dues surcharge, waiving the fire truck loan, another solar field, travel promotion, and an impending retirement…
Supporters of establishing a commercial drag racing strip in Twentynine Palms continued their vigorous promotion of the idea during public comment.
Council voted 2-3 to NOT increase its dues to the California League of Cities by about $800 per year. The dues surcharge, which would have supported the League’s litigation efforts, was favored by members Harris and Klink.
A discussion on waiving reimbursement from fire protection development impact fees for $125,000 of its loan to the Water District for a ladder truck was continued to a future meeting, so that the City Manager could research the legal implications.
During his status report, City Manager Joe Guzetta noted that a planned commercial solar energy generation field at Mesquite Springs and Raymond is within the City’s Sphere of Influence. Council directed Guzetta to draft a resolution of opposition, per the new county ordinance on such facilities. Guzetta reported that Vickie Waite will be attending several travel trade shows to promote the City.
Council member Harris reported learning that Sheriff’s Captain Rich Boswell plans to retire in March.
