It’s going to cost an additional $284,880 and possibly another $52,000 for the City of St. Helena to complete its long-overdue General Plan.
On the City Council’s agenda for its Tuesday, Jan. 9 meeting (6 p.m. in the second floor board room at Vintage Hall, 465 Main St.) is a resolution to hire consultants Dyett and Bhatia to complete the city’s General Plan Update and Environmental Impact Report. Depending on the optional tasks chosen, the council will authorize $336,880 for the work. The funds will come from the city’s General Fund Reserves.
In other business next Tuesday, the City Council may approve a lease and maintenance agreement for two city vehicles and is expected to authorize Police Chief William Imboden to accept a new Police K9 and authorize both initial training and maintenance for its new handler. The initial four-week training costs $7,500, maintenance training is expected to cost no more than $6,000 a year. The council also will make assignments to various city and Napa County committees, boards and commissions.
