The formation of a citizen-led task force to address long range facility needs for the the City of Olivette is among one of many items to be discussed at tonight's meeting of the Olivette City Council.
The regular meeting of the Olivette City Council will be held at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers.
The City had called on citizens to join the Olivette Future Task Force through its website and, according to Council documents, has received interest from several citizens for the group that will be comprised of a member of the Olivette City Council, a designated member of the Olivette Planning and Community Design Commission and five citizens.
Eight citizens expressed interest in joining the task force. Residents will be picked based on their level of interest and qualifications, according to an email from Olivette City Manager Mike McDowell.
Materials to be presented to Olivette City Councilors tonight detail a timetable for the Olivette Future Task Force.
An initial review and assessment by the task force is expected to be completed by Nov. 20 with the ultimage goal of providing recommendations to the City Council that will be used to adopt an ordinance to hold a Bond Election in August.
The task force was prompted after Olivette voters did not give the necessary approval on a pair of ballot measures last August to fund improvements for police, fire and parks in the city.
