Long Agenda Awaits Covington Commission at Caucus Meeting

At its first official meeting last week, the Covington City Commission adopted a set of rules primarily related to how meetings are conducted. That means that caucus meetings will be, by design, full of discussion.

The first caucus meeting for the new commission takes place on Monday and there will be lots to discuss. Moving forward, items that will ultimately appear on legislative meeting agendas will be first brought up for consideration at these caucus meetings, which typically take place a week before legislative meetings, where commissioners vote on issues and legislation.

Fourteen items will be presented by members of the city staff, and then there are an additional fifteen items that will be presented for open discussion among the city commission members.

Among the items for open discussion are the retroactive raise awarded to City Manager Larry Klein late last year, as well as guidelines for what is expected of the city manager. Restoration of full fire service in South Covington and parking issues in Mainstrasse Village are on the list. There will be discussion of an independent review of the city's finances, the city's ribbon cutting program, and a status report on economic development projects.

The meeting is scheduled to start at 5:15 p.m. at Covington City Hall (20 West Pike Street). The River City News will have the meeting covered.
