Bishop City Council: parking, grants, LADWP leases

bchThe Bishop City Council meets tonight with two public hearings.

First, a hearing on the environmental review of the Crossfit Gym on Willow Street.  The Council wants to hear from the public on a Draft Negative Declaration to allow Crossfit Gym to set aside the commercial parking requirements for gymnasium occupancy according to city code.

The other public hearing deals with submission of an application for the 2012 State Community Development Block Grant program.  Again, public input is invited.

After the public hearings, the Council will consider adopting the environmental review of Crossfit Gym and they will consider adoption of a resolution for the block grant to go to IMACA.

Also on tonight’s agenda, appointment of a Parks and Recreation Commissioner to a four year term.  The Council will consider adoption of an ordinance and resolution amending fees and charges for city services.

The Council will also consider approval of the state budget for Sunrise Mobile Home Park for the new fiscal year, and they will consider approval of the General Plan annual progress report.  Last on the open agenda – approval of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power lease for eight city parking lots.

The final move will be a closed session over labor negotiations involving the Bishop Employees Association, Bishop Police Officers Association, Mid-Management, and Management.

Tonight’s meeting starts at 7pm at Bishop City Hall.

    I don’t think the City of Bishop needs a parks and recreation commissioner, how many parks does the city have? In this time of economic distress, does the city need another well paid government position, who is getting promoted?

      Big Al, The City of Bishop has a Parks and Recreation Commission. The members are appointed by the City Council – much like the Planning Commission. They are not paid a salary. Perhaps some stipend to attend meetings. Benett

        Right on, I didn’t realize that, so they’re appointing anew commissioner to the commission. Totally spaced that out.

          Benett -isn’t our last Parks and Rec. director now making over a 100 grand a year as city manager? Isn’t his claim to fame closing the city skateboard park?

            The salary sounds about right. He did temporarily close the skatepark when behaviors had gone too far the wrong way. Benett

    I am not familiar with Cross Fit Gym on Willow. I know there’s a gym a few blocks down. Any one know if this is something new?
