Orland City Council seats three new members
The Orland City Council will begin a new chapter Monday with the swearing in of three council members elected on Nov. 6.
Councilmen Bruce Roundy and Jim Paschall, Sr. are to take the oath of office along with returning council member Salina Edwards who was elected to take the spot vacated by Mayor Wade Elliott.
Elliott also will be honored during a reception at 7 p.m. for his four years of service to the council. He opted not to run again in 2012.
The reception and meeting take place at the Carnegie Center, 912 Third St., with the meeting beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Council members also will certify the voting results put forth by Glenn County Clerk Sheyl Thur.
Also elected were City Clerk Angela Crook and City Treasurer Pamela Otterson who were unopposed.
They too will be sworn in to four year terms.
The council also will select a new mayor and vice-mayor for 2013 at Monday's meeting.
In other business, City Manager Peter Carr is seeking permission to apply the rent from the old Purity Market building to a loan the city took from its water enterprise fund.
The building was purchased in 2006 for a public safety facility, but tax revenues and residential building activity plummeted shortly after - making it unfeasible to remodel the building.
Today, the city owes its water fund around $476,000 on the project, Carr said.
He proposes to take the $16,000 generated each year from rents to a discount market and apply that to the water fund to pay back the loan.
He also wants to discuss capital improvement plans for city parks and the Orland swimming pool and get direction on the those projects.
