The primary agenda item is the presentation of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the Year Ended June 30, 2014. While budget information often strikes citizens as boring, understanding the City’s financial health is critical and the details are in the attachments.
The Consent Calendar, which are items that can be passed without discussion, include two major items. The first is to approve the release of a Request for Proposals (RFP) to develop Master Plans for the athletic fields and community center. The second is a resolution to fund programs that will help residents in accessing energy and water conservation and efficiency products, services, financing and incentives.

Over 70 people braved the elements to attend the February 9 Fort Bragg City Council meeting which was reconvened to the old gym, which had power from City Hall.
The vast majority appeared to be there for non-agenda items, so sat through interesting city business before several became raucous and demanded that the agenda be changed so they could speak early, rather than listening to an update on all of the city’s capital projects. The Council did vote 3-2 to change the agenda so they could speak earlier under the conditions that the rude and inappropriate behavior, which has now too often become the norm at city meetings, cease. The city police waited in the hall to assure the crowd was orderly as over 20 people spoke, most criticizing the purchase of the Old Coast Hotel.
While the increased community participation is encouraging, the yelling and lack of respect shown by a number of citizens is discouraging. It is obvious that many people do not understand the processes of government nor do they realize how important the entire agenda is to this city’s operations and its citizens. Over 60 people left the room when that item was finished, ignoring the rest of the business to be conducted.
Watch your government in action including the following issues:
*CDBG Grant guidelines to help people get support as they work to build their own businesses
*Presentation on the Noyo Center for Marine Science
*Capital Projects Update
*Parking in lieu fee waiver
*Consent Calendar Items
While transmission lines are fixed, which gave 3000-3500 fort bragg customers power there are still 5000-5600 in the fort bragg area out.
There are 200 locations with distribution damage so it may be slow to get service restored to everyone.
Fort Bragg is their priority and hope to have most of it done by midnight although some may be tomorrow.
Part of Mendocino is restored although still about 1200 out.
75 still out in Elk but 325 fixed there. 665 customers in Albion still without power.
