Council to hold closed-session negotiations regarding Sylvan Corners lot
The City Council will hold a special closed-session meeting at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday morning to negotiate “price and terms of payment” with Woodside Homes regarding the property at Sylvan Corners. The unusual time for the meeting is likely due to the council having a strategic planning session set for 8:30 a.m. the same day. The council previously approved a sale agreement with the Woodside in January, but several aspects were not finalized and a 90-day “due diligence” period was included.

Citrus Heights chamber receives $10k sponsorship from city
The City Council voted 5-0 to approve a $10,000 sponsorship request from the Citrus Heights Chamber of Commerce. A public comment from resident David Warren advocated for disapproving the request in light of the city’s current financials, but council members said the return on investment was worth it. Mention of federal relief funds coming to the city was also made.
