Grass Valley to revisit annexation at council meeting


During tonight’s meeting, the Grass Valley City Council will be revisiting the proposed annexation of 120 acres of land just south of city limits.

The land in question includes several prominent industrial businesses that are currently outside of city limits, as well as most of the former Bear River Mills site.

The annexation was approved earlier this month, but a second reading of the prezoning ordinance is still required by law.

Prezoning allows stakeholders to see exactly what the city has planned for future developments in and around the annexed acreage.

Tonight’s second reading of the prezoning ordinance is on the consent calendar, and may not be addressed at length unless pulled for discussion by a member of the council.

Other items of interest on tonight’s agenda include the possible hiring of a full-time finance director.

Starting salary for the position is $115,000, but City Manager Bob Richardson has advised a pay-for-performance agreement allowing that pay rate to be adjusted at his discretion, based on the new hire’s ability to meet stated goals.

The city will also be reviewing this year’s results in the 16th annual Citizen Attitude Survey, which gives local residents and business owners the opportunity to rate the level of service provided by the Grass Valley Police Department.

The council meets at 7 p.m. today; the complete agenda is available on the city’s website.
