E.C. council to mull new condos, selling business park parcels

May 15, 2001|By RUDY YNIGUEZ, Staff Writer

The El Centro City Council will conduct public hearings to consider a fourplex condominium project and the sale of two city-owned parcels in the Centerpoint Business Park.

The condominium project is planned for a 1-acre vacant lot at 1630 Euclid Ave. It has received city Planning Commission approval, with certain conditions.

The City Council meets in open session at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at 1275 Main St.

The hearing is tentatively set for 7.

The public hearings on the proposed sale of the two parcels in the business park would be for the development of an office/shop of about 5,000 square feet and the development of a light industrial manufacturing plant of similar size. The former is expected to result in 15 to 30 jobs and the latter in 10 to 20 jobs.

The hearings will be jointly held with the city's Redevelopment Agency board, which consists of the council members, and are tentatively set for 7:15-7:45.


In other business, the council:

· will consider adopting a resolution approving an agreement with the Los Angeles-based law firm of Liebert Cassiday Whitmore to provide legal services pertaining to employment relation matters. The hourly rates range from $75 for a paralegal to $260 for certain attorneys.

· will be asked by the Police Department to adopt a resolution approving an agreement and associated costs with Motorola Communications for an upgrade to the department's communications center. The total cost is $265,585.78, of which the city's share is expected to not exceed $90,585.78. Motorola has offered to finance the upgrade, according to a staff report.

· will be asked by the Imperial County Office of Education to adopt a resolution in support of the ICOE's attempt to seek supplemental funding from the state for the completion of the county's fiber optic network.

· will discuss and possibly set dates for budget hearings.

· will hear an activities report by the El Centro Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau.
