City enters interlocal agreement with Fair Association

PRESCOTT – A short agenda didn’t mean a short meeting for the Prescott City Council at its September meeting Monday night.

The only item of business the panel dealt with was to approve a resolution for the city to enter into an interlocal agreement with the Nevada County Fair Association. Under the agreement, the city will pick up the tab for utilities at the fairgrounds while the association will be responsible for everything else.

Brad Crain, city accountant, was asked about the city’s finances. He told the council the city is “doing OK” and he monitors the budget regularly. “As long as the city spends only what it needs to spend, it’ll be OK,” he said.

Councilman Tommy Poole asked to have the fuel adjustment explained and how the amount owed is determined.

Larry Jones, Jr., with the electric department, said there is a formula where the amount of the transmission and expenditures are taken into consideration on a monthly basis and divided equally among customers on the same percentage. It was pointed out the percentage isn’t to exceed 0.0416 percent. Jones said this fluctuates with the pancake charges and has been on the high side.

When asked the status of the electricity situation, City Attorney Glenn Vasser said the sides are exploring all options, but are close to a deal. “Hopefully, by next month we’ll be able to elaborate on it.”

Councilman Howard Austin asked about the dog situation, complaining about dogs getting into his trash, and a dog on Sixth St. that reportedly tries to attack people.

Prescott Mayor Terry Oliver said the situation with dogs is better and the public isn’t seeing as many strays as it did. He said there haven’t been any complaints coming through City Hall concerning dogs, but the Prescott Police Department may have heard something.

It was suggested Austin use a live trap to capture the dog getting into his trash.

This was followed by a 25-minute executive executive session to discuss a personnel matter.
