Salida City Council will conduct a public hearing on an ordinance raising the maximum fine for code violations from $1,000 to $2,650 during its meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday in council chambers at 448 E. First St.

Another public hearing will review the inclusionary housing ordinance, which was passed in October 2018.

Also on the agenda are:

  • An agreement to have the Chaffee County Community Foundation run the city’s community funding via a donor-advised fund.
  • Proposed adoption of the Downtown Salida Parking Study.
  • A resolution on a budget amendment that allows operating transfers between funds.
  • A resolution supporting grant applications to the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Multimodal Options Fund and Transportation Alternatives Program to help fund projects outlined by the Future 50 project.
  • Possible appointment of Johann “Kit” Steimle to the Planning Commission. Council is scheduled to interview Steimle at a work session today.
  • First reading of ordinances annexing and rezoning 2 acres at 6906 Vandaveer Ranch Road.

Council members will meet for a work session at 6 p.m. today in chambers. At that meeting they will interview Steimle, view a presentation on a proposed ice rink and discuss potential 2020 budget items.
