FROM: KRISTINA MILLER, CITY MANAGER
DATE: June 25, 2021
PROPOSITION 68 PARK DEVELOPMENT AND COMMUNITY REVITALIZATION GRANT
City Planner I, Christina Meeds, and I met with Megan Harrison, Project Officer, California State Parks about the two grant applications and provided her a tour. The meeting went well. The grant funders conduct an in-person meeting with all applicants.
EMERGENCY WATER USAGE POLICY:
The City Council at the June 22nd City Council meeting approved an Emergency Water Usage Policy to provide emergency water for residential properties in the unincorporated County. Since this time, I have been approached by a few commercial businesses whose well has gone dry or are very concerned they soon will. One of these businesses is critical infrastructure and the other is a RV Park. There may be a need to schedule a Special City Council meeting for the Council to consider whether the City should allow emergency use for commercial purposes.
On a positive note, the County is working on a plan to provide water delivery to residential properties whose wells have gone dry.
Summer recreation starts next week, and registration is on a steady climb which is great. To register for classes please visit www.corning.org.
