Hudson Oaks council expected to discuss city administrator position

By BRIAN SMITH

HUDSON OAKS — Council members here are expected to go into executive session during tonight’s regular council meeting to discuss the position of city administrator.

The meeting is slated to begin at 7 p.m. at City Hall.

The council opted not to renew former city administrator Sheri Campbell-Husband’s contract during the council’s last meeting March 28. A settlement agreement was approved during a special called meeting last week.

Assistant City Administrator Patrick Lawler was named interim city administrator during the special meeting.

The council is also expected to consider approval of a public pool ordinance. According to a staff report, the opening of Splash Kingdom Wild West Waterpark forced the city to create the ordinance because it is the only public pool in the city.

If approved, the ordinance establishes health and sanitation regulations for public swimming pools, spas, and interactive water features and fountains within the City. The water park is expected to open later this spring.

In a related item, amending the city’s fee schedule is also on the agenda for the meeting. The creation of the public pool ordinance required the establishment of an inspection fee for public pools, which will be $125. Updates to residential irrigation fees, which was listed incorrectly, and public works improvement fees, which were required by the city’s subdivision ordinance but not listed on the fee schedule, are expected to be approved.

Council is also expected to consider spending 2012 Water Improvement Bond funds on the Dyegard No.2 tie-in project.

Council approved a list of projects to be financed by the 2012 Water Improvement Program last year.

Originally, $1.15 million was designated for the Red Eagle surface water plant project, but unforeseen delays in acquiring property needed to construct the plant has allowed staff to focus attention into the Dyegard tie-in project.
