Town Council meets tonight

In the Truckee Town Council meeting tonight at 6 p.m., introductions to new Truckee Police Department personnel Scott Berry and Rebecca Haynes will lead off the meeting.

Berry, the police commander, and Haynes, the executive assistant, began working for the department May 7.

The council will also discuss action to fill the vacancy that will soon be left by Bob Drake, a long-standing council member who has decided to step down. Drake’s last day is May 31.

Town Council will also consider authorizing architectural services to remodel Town Hall to accommodate the offices for the new Truckee Police Department.

Job classifications and salaries for parking enforcement officers, records technicians and community services officers with the new police department will also be considered as will the purchase of a new Dial-A-Ride bus for approximately $68,000.

The Town of Truckee will then hear public comment on hearings over the Pioneer Commerce Center, a large industrial business park that recently advanced from the Planning Commission to Town Council for final approval.

Opposition to the project has been raised by individuals who feel the site should not be used for anything other than industrial space.

A public hearing will also be held over the parcel charges for special services areas and permanent road divisions.

Council is also expected to set a date for a budget workshop, a time when Town Council meets with staff from the Town of Truckee to determine appropriate budget modifications for the next fiscal year.

The Town of Truckee is approaching the next fiscal year and will have to approve the budget in the next few weeks.
