The Civic Minute: What’s happening at Citrus Heights City Hall?

The Citrus Heights City Council will meet Thursday to consider approving a fee waiver for a community organization to use city facilities, along with issuing a proclamation recognizing Black History Month and conducting a state-mandated ethics training for elected officials.

The agenda packet for Feb. 9 is shorter than usual, with just 15 pages and three items on the agenda. Below is a summary of what’s on the agenda:

Proclamation. The council meeting will begin with a proclamation formally recognizing the month of February as Black History Month.

Fee Waiver. The council will consider approving a $2,814.24 facility fee waiver for the Residents’ Empowerment Association of Citrus Heights to use the Community Center for a potluck next month. The proposal would include waiving a $1,400 deposit as well as a 6-hour rental normally billed at $195 per hour and a $244 fee for audio-visual equipment.
