Town Hall open house tonight
Following the new Town Hall open house at 4:30 p.m. today, Truckee Town Council will discuss fee increases and consider a special tax district for a new development.
At their regular meeting at 6 p.m., Town Council will consider approving a 10 percent increase to planning, building and encroachment permit fees, a 2.6 percent increase to traffic mitigation fees and updating fees that may be created or abolished by adoption of the new development code.
According to town staff, much of the fee increases are direct responses to increased costs incurred by the town. The town cites an engineering study which describes road construction costs and the cost of personnel.
To help defray the cost of equipment necessary to serve new growth and development, Town Council will also consider a Fire Impact Fee prepared by the Truckee Fire Protection District in their meeting tonight. (See additional story, page 1A)
Council will consider appointing Carole Sesko to the Historic Preservation Advisory Commission and reappointing Matt Rusanoff and Sharon Arnold for a four-year term to the seven-member board.
Rusanoff, who will be considered for the professional category, served a one-year initial term and has asked the town to be reappointed. Arnold, a historical society member and lifetime Truckee resident, has asked for reappointment following a two year initial term. Sesko, who may replace former professional seat Mike Norris, was the only candidate to apply for the position.
Council will also consider the formation of a new tax assessment district for Featherstone, the resort community near Prosser. The town approved the project based on the condition that revenue from transient occupancy tax would defray the cost for the town.
The meeting and open house will be held at the new Town Hall, 10183 Truckee Airport Road. For details call 582-7700.
