Redevelopment authority meeting

On Tuesday afternoon, the Redevelopment Authority of the city of Kenosha met for a brief meeting to discuss several agenda items.  The first was the financial report for August 31, 2012.  It was received and filed.

The second item was the proposed $1/year lease for the private dumpster at 515 – 58th Street (DIG Kenosha, LLC).  Chairperson Katherine Marks’ signature is required on the lease, according to community development specialist,  Zohrab Khaligian.

The committee then discussed the 2013 Redevelopment Authority Plan and the proposed 2013 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).  In total, the request for funding is $1.25 million for the next three years, $1.7 million for the next five years.  The amount was amended from $425,000 to $400,000 for 2013 and $250,000 in the latter years.  Marks said that one more acquisition is planned for this year.  The Common Council must approve this request for funding.

Doug Williams commented that, based on the Common Council meeting held on Monday night, “it seems that it will be a tough budget this year.  We’ll have to see what happens.”  Marks asked that staff inform the authority when the CIP funding request will appear on the council’s agenda, so that they can come and lend their support.

The last item on the agenda was the potential acquisition of the property at 4810 – 37th Avenue for $120,000.  Williams made a motion for a counter offer in the amount of the assessed value of $114,800.

Marks requested that the next meeting be held on October 23rd or October 30th due to a schedule conflict she had on the date of the next regularly scheduled meeting of October 16th.
