Leaders may start setting goals today

Nevada City council members, planning commissioners and citizens are expected to begin hashing out their goals in a special meeting at 6 p.m. today.

Water treatment plant upgrades, how to spend sales taxes for road repair and new street signs topped the wish list Nevada City leaders came up with at a workshop earlier this month.

Each council member and planning commissioner is expected to list their top projects for the ongoing, long-term and short-term categories.

In business scheduled for the regular meeting starting at 7:30 p.m., Jim McConnaughay, chairman of the Nevada City Downtown Business Association, is asking to shift $4,000 in the group’s budget to boost advertising. The $4,000 now is set aside to pay for a temporary stage during future downtown events.
