7/21/2014 4:18:00 PM Council to discuss pool at workshop
By David Richards
The Byron city council, following its regular July 22 meeting at 6 p.m., will meet with city staff for a workshop to discuss the proposed sports complex/aquatic center as well as a senior housing project. The workshop will be held in the City Hall conference room.
The workshop is a working session of the council, which means no final decisions will be made.
The council has to decide by Aug. 22 if it wishes to hold an election Nov. 4 to ask voters whether they want or don't want a new sports complex and aquatic center in Byron.
The pool committee has recommended a proposed $5.4 million facility to the council.
At the council's June 24 meeting, councilman Bret Baumbach noted the importance of holding such a workshop.
"I want to make sure I'm well enough informed to say if I want a referendum or not," he said.
Aug. 22 is the date written notice of the election must be delivered by the city to the county auditor. The notice must include the date of election and title and language for each ballot question to be voted on.
The proposed facility is to be located on the city's land near Byron Towne Village.
