CALL TO ORDER

3. DISCUSSION

A. Presentation by the Prescott Area Young Professionals Advisory Committee.

Utilize walkability of Prescott, and greenway. Thinks the greenway needs a bit of TLC and a plan for maintenance. 

Discusses Jefferson Park - which is better known as Mile High Middle School.

City Manager Michael Lamar agrees that the greenway can be cleaned up. He's asking his staff to give him a list of things "they CAN do." He agrees that they need to make people feel safe on the greenway. 

Suggesting that the old railroad tracks could be used for trails, too, and even connect to Iron Springs Road. 

Uses for Jefferson Park and Granite Creek Park:

Host some events there that used to be hosted at the Square.

Sischka asks where food trucks fit into the idea?

Allow them to be incorporated into City. Thinks that once or twice a month events should be held there. Look to retrain them within 4-6 months.

Food trucks coming to North Prescott at the airport - APS starting August 3.

There is some discussion that an empty lot (as yet unnamed) to be considered a "Food Truck Lot".

Sischka is concerned about food truck competition with restaurants, but would like to have an area with food trucks in it.

b. Exhibit A

Proposing to move the position into a more customer-service based role.

They have used this auditor in the past. They have found that his services usually recover the costs, approximately by about 3 times. 

Blair is frustrated that they have to pay the state to manage the sales tax collections. He wants the City to sue on the basis of being a Charter city. Attorney Paladini says the chances of winning are slim.

Councilman Goode asks if the charter is deficient regarding tax collection. The main thing the charter states is that the City can only tax up to 1%, otherwise it requres a city-wide vote. 

The attorney points out that, "Anyone can sue anyone over anything... But is it a wise use of resources? ...When it's a foregone conclusion, it isn't worth doing."

If businesses don't pay the taxes due, the City will investigate and go after the business.

Motion passes unanimously.
