Council finalizes TID #3 district for business park

Routine matters.
Those are what the Dodgeville City Council took care of in their 15 minute open session at their second monthly meeting Tuesday.
It was the first meeting for city clerk Lisa Riley since her recent surgery and she spent time informing the council about the upcoming spring primary.
"We are having some problems with election workers as some of our regulars will be gone and some will not work the rest of the year because of covid-19," Riley told the council.
"But we are putting things together and it should go fine," she said.
There may not be too many votes from in person voters to count. There are no contests and there have been many requests for absentee ballots, Riley told the council.
In matters before the council the final step in creating tax incremental district 3 was taken by passing resolution 1013. The resolution, passed unanimously, follows several hearings and finalizes the TID which is the business park north of Walmart.
The resolution was recommended by the Plan Commission and is in conformance with the city's master plan.
The council also passed Resolution 1391 which corrects the make up of the Plan Commission to follow state mandates. The make up of the commission will be the chairman, one alderperson, one member of parks and recreation, four citizen members and one alternate. Citizen members are appointed by the Mayor for staggered three year terms with the alderperson and parks and rec member appointed by 2/3 council vote for one year terms.
Resolution 1014 was also passed and designates where the fund balance for unexpended balances will be placed.
The council approved the lease agreement for the Bug Tussel tower which is already completed. The city receives $400 per month rent and a percentage from whoever else uses the tower. The agreement is with Cloud 1, LLC.
In a final matter the council passed a resolution waiving interest and penalty for 2019 takes, giving taxpayers until October 1 to pay their second half taxes. The council was told that all county municipalities except five have passed a similar resolution.
