It was mostly an empty house for Tuesday night's Chelan City Council meeting, and maybe that's just as well, because it was at its heart, a meeting of routine business. Although it was important business, including the council's approval of a memorandum of understanding between the city and the Chelan Valley Housing Trust, explained to the council by City Administrator Wade Farris:

That was passed unanimously with one abstention: Councilman Tim Hollingsworth, who sits on the Housing Trust board.

Next up was the 2024 agreement for emergency management services with Chelan County. Again, Wade Farris:

That also passed unanimously; the city will pay Chelan County $3,441.90 per quarter.

There was also action on a grant from the State Department of Transportation for the Lake Chelan Airport Apron and Taxiway Maintenance Project. Mr. Farris:

City Clerk Peri Gallucci there. There were also items on the city's personnel manual and electronic funds transfer policy; also a public hearing on the Lake Hills Road Vacation, for which there was no public comment.

So in the end, not an exciting meeting, but a routine business meeting. There will be another meeting in two weeks.
