At today's regularly scheduled meeting, the Merced City Council will hear a staff update on goals and priorities.
The report will look at efforts to revise impact fees and other progress on the direction council has given. In January, city leaders outlined 10 goals during a public workshop. A date for the next goals and priority workshop likely will be set.
The council will also consider dates for holding council meetings in other locations of the city.
The council had its first meeting outside of City Hall in April. There has been an expressed desire to hold future meetings in different sites in the community to engage more residents. Dates for meetings in northern and south Merced likely will be set today.
The council will consider renewing its contract with the Boys and Girls Club.
The city is being asked to renew the lease of the McCombs Youth Center with the Boys and Girls Club of Merced County. Approval could include a $35,000 reimbursement to the club for operational costs at the facility.
