BPA Interim Relief Payment Agreement/Determining the Allocation of the Refunded Money
Electric Director Dick Wanderscheid clarified staff is recommending $300,000 of the refunded money be allocated towards Solar Pioneer II. He added staff would still actively market the selling of the solar panels. Council questioned if this money could be used for something else, such as paying down the AFN debt. City Administrator Martha Bennett clarified this is unrestricted money and Council could allocate it as they see fit.

Interim Public Works Director Jim Olson briefly commented on the improvements to the alley, including the request for a one-way traffic designation.

Mr. Olson also commented on the installation of the pedestrian activated flashing light system and clarified lights be would located on each side of the crosswalks as well as in the median.

Meeting adjourned at 6:30 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
