New Ulm City Council Preview 02 Jul 13

The New Ulm City Council this (TUE) evening is scheduled to vote on the final permit needed for M-R Paving to take over the management of the city’s compost and burn site. The approval of a Conditional Use Permit for the site is on the agenda this evening which would finalize the move. Residents will still be able to drop of yard waste free of charge at the compost site, and the lease will save the city around $30,000 annually, and bring in rental income. M-R will be selling the compost generated at the site along with other products, and will also expand the site’s hours of operation. In other business this evening, the council will consider establishing Tax Increment Financing districts for apartment complexes under construction. TIF funds are generated by properties paying property taxes, then having a portion of those taxes refunded to the business. Today’s New Ulm City Council meeting begins at 5pm at City Hall.
