City Council Agenda: DTE Outage Presentation, Public Safety Contract and More

The second reading of an ordinance that would rezone property near Vinsetta Garage to make way for a parking lot and a date for the annual Holiday Lights Parade also will be discussed Monday night at City Hall.

The Berkley City Council will meet at 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall.

The following items are among those on the agenda.

  • Approval of an ordinance that would rezone 1010 Eaton, which is owned by Vinsetta Garage, from single-family residential district to parking district to make way for a parking lot to serve the restaurant. A first reading of the ordinance was conducted during the council's Oct. 1 meeting.
  • A report from DTE energy representative Mike Palchesko about power outages that have plagued the city since this summer.
  • A resolution that designates Saturday, Dec. 1, as the date for the annual Holiday Lights Parade and tree-lighting ceremony in Berkley.
  • Approval of a contractor agreement with Berkley Public Safety Director Richard Eshman for the period from Oct. 22, 2012, through Oct. 21, 2014. A similar agreement was approved for BPS Deputy Director Robert North in July. City Manager Jane Bais-DiSessa said that contract saved the city approximately $47,000.

The meeting is open to the public and there will be opportunities for citizen comments. It also is available to view live on the city's website.

The complete agenda is attached as a PDF. Stay tuned to Berkley Patch for more information from the meeting.
