Meeting Preview

This week’s meeting is bumped from Tuesday night to Wednesday night because of the party caucuses. Not much of consequence on this week’s agenda for most businesses.

LODGING TAX The City is creating a “Lodging Tax Special Revenue Fund will allow for greater transparency within this new fund and the General Fund.  The lodging tax revenue will still be recognized as tax revenue, but it will no longer be combined with the tax revenue within the General Fund, which is almost entirely property tax revenue.” Item 5A1

BEACON CONST APPEAL “Beacon Construction, Inc. made application for an Appeal of the Board of Adjustment and Appeals’ (BOAA) determination of a Conditional Use Permit request to allow exterior storage at 290 Sarazin Street.” 10B1

INTERFUND LOAN “This resolution allows the city of Shakopee to be reimbursed for staff time and any consultants used to review the application for funding (TIF) for the Canterbury project and evaluating infrastructure needs and costs.” 10B2
