When the Sheldon City Council meets Wednesday (August 21st) they will discuss a proposed agreement with the Sheldon Chamber and Development Corporation with regard to the Development Director position.
In the past this person was employed by the SCDC and paid by the SCDC . The SCDC does not have the benefit program offered by the City. Under the proposed agreement the Development Director would be a Senior Management position with the city. The SCDC would reimburse the city of Sheldon for the annual salary costs of the position. The SCDC Board and structure would remain the same and the director would be expected to continue to communicate as necessary with both organizations. The agreement must be approved by both the City Council and SCDC Board.
Sheldon’s Solid waste and recycling collection will also be up for discussion. Council member Ron Rensink has asked for this to be brought up, stating that he feels the blue containers used for recycling are a ‘joke’. He also brought up the possibility of more wide-spread use of the new type of garbage containers.
In other business they will discuss “what’s next’ for the Sheldon Crossing and Borrow Pit area. The pit is now owned by the city and construction is beginning on the new residential area. The council will discuss the next step in the development of a planned community park in this area.
Wednesday’s City Council meeting will begin at 4:30 pm in the upper level of the Sheldon Community Services center.
