Here is what happened with the city this week, and what to look for in the week to come.
Notice: Starting in March, the City Council meeting schedule will change. Regular council meetings will be scheduled only on the first and third Tuesday of each month, with the fourth Tuesday of each month held for Beaverton Urban Redevelopment Agency (BURA) meetings. Please note there will be some exceptions in the month of May.
City Council is also moving to a hybrid-location model for meetings. The first meeting of each month will occur in-person with city leaders in Council Chambers. Remote participation will still be an option, including for visitor comments from the public.
This week, Council discussed reimbursement districts – the benefits, outcomes and next steps in adding a new section to the city’s code that would allow private developers to share costs related to infrastructure improvements, such as sewer lines, utilities, and transportation improvements.
Council also reviewed options for hiring Beaverton Municipal Court Judges and adopted a resolution amendment, establishing a new hiring process that authorizes the presiding judge to appoint, manage, and remove the municipal court’s associate and pro-tem judges.
Upcoming Council meetings are slated for February 22 and March 1. View a recording of the entire meeting and agendas for future meetings at: www.BeavertonOregon.gov/Council.
