INTRODUCTIONS, READINGS, AND PASSAGE OF BILLS AND RESOLUTIONS
Bill No. 5145 – Amending and Restating Resolution No. 879
Mayor Kelly said this bill is regarding the Costco Project, which is in the redevelopment area of Hanley Industrial Court. They are adding a tract of land to their proposal that was originally designated as future redevelopment area and ultimately eliminating part that was in the initial proposal. The parcel of land was also part of the original Promenade proposal as a development area but as a means of tidying up the redevelopment agreement, they needed to add that to their area for the development of the Costco site.
Mayor Kelly said Pace Properties will be assigning the development rights over to Costco and Costco will be the developer.
Alderman Leahy said Resolution No. 879 was passed more than 60 days ago. Page 3, section 7 of the funding agreement, establishes that the City has the right to terminate only if a redevelopment agreement is not executed within 60 days following the conclusion of a public hearing. No public hearing has been held on Resolution No. 879, so the City is not under any time frame at this point.
Mayor Kelly said that is correct because the City has not initiated the funding agreement.
Alderman Leahy said in Resolution No. 879 there was a three day executive sign off to receive funds and no funds have been received, so Resolution No. 879 is basically void at this point.
Mayor Kelly said yes.
City Attorney Murphy gave Bill No. 5145, AN ORDINANCE AMENDING AND RESTATING RESOLUTION NO. 879 DESIGNATING PACE PROPERTIES, INCORPORATED AS THE PREFERRED DEVELOPER IN CONNECTION WITH A PROPOSED TAX INCREMENT FINANCING PROJECT, AUTHORIZING A PRELIMINARY FUNDING AGREEMENT WITH PACE PROPERTIES, INCORPORATED AND ESTABLISHING AN ESCROW FOR FUNDING COSTS IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROPOSED PROJECT, its first and second readings.
Motion was made by Alderman Golfin, second by Alderman Robertson to approve and adopt Bill No. 5145. Roll call: Alderman Boyd, yes; Alderman Marshall, yes; Alderman Leahy, no; Alderman Golfin, yes; Alderwoman Mehler, yes; Alderman Robertson, yes; Alderman Wynn, no; Alderman Cross, yes.
The Mayor thereupon declared Bill No. 5145 duly passed and signed same into approval. Said Bill was given Ordinance No. 3852.

Mayor Kelly said this resolution is required by City Code in order to have alcoholic beverages served on City property at the Holiday Open House on December 2, 2002.

Mayor Kelly said establishments that have package liquor licenses are able to sell the 16-oz cans under the umbrella of package liquor which is in essence selling it by the drink. He asked the Public Safety Committee to review the sale of 16-oz canned beer and see if there is any way the City could make restrictions on the individual sale of canned beer.

Municipal League – No report
Waste Management Commission – No report
Alderman Golfin said he would like to call attention to the updated stormwater flood report, which summarizes the work over the previous years. This report particularly emphasizes the priority projects that the City was hoping to complete in 2002 but because of engineering and construction delays they are not able to. Those are now highlighted in gray in the report. Hopefully they will accomplish those in 2003 and the money will be available to do that and obtain matching funds from MSD.
