The Kuna City Council meeting following the annual Board of Correction meeting last Tuesday evening was business as usual with city council members breezing through the agenda.
The consent items were approved. They included adopting the minutes from the last meeting and renewal of two alcohol licenses. The first license was for the Kuna Chevron at 150 W. Deer Flat Road and the second the Jacksons at 330 W. 3rd Street. Both were for off premise beer and wine.
New business included a lot line adjustment between two neighbors who wished to correct an original plotting error in a shared fence line at 1173 S. Ruler Place. The request was adopted.
A second item of business was for consideration of a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute a Park & Ride agreement with the Ada County Highway District. This primarily entailed ACHD wanting to utilize the parking lot at N. B Avenue and 2nd Street next to the baseball field and the VFW hall as a location to park Commuteride vans and parking for residents using the Park & Ride vans. With multiple concerns regarding permanence of the lot, access to other Kuna residents utilizing the park and whether or not this was a proper lot for Park & Ride, the resolution was tabled for further research and review.
Third item up for business was approval of a resolution moving forward the project priority list for the “City of Kuna – 2013 Transportation Prioritization Request” that is the working document of traffic construction priorities between Kuna and ACHD. City council swapped around several priorities and approved the resolution.
Fourth, the city council approved a resolution authorizing the signing of consultant services with HDR Engineering, Inc. for a fine screen project at the sewage treatment plant.
Finally, John Marsh, Kuna City Treasurer, presented the results of the financial operations of the city through February 2013. Marsh outlined “A healthy picture for city revenues.” For the last five-month period the revenue exceeds expenditures by $802,450 citywide. The city is currently sitting on a positive cash position of $5,818,842.
