Treasurer’s report. The council will consider routine acceptance and filing of a quarterly treasurer’s report for the period ending March. 31, 2022. The six-page report summarizes the city’s various investment accounts and shows the market value of the city’s cash and investments at $38.1 million, up from $30.9 million at the end of the prior quarter. The total includes $6.8 million in unexpended funds received from the American Rescue Plan Act.
COVID relief grants. The council will hear a staff report with an update on a small business grant program, which distributed a total of $277,611 in funds, out of $320,000 that had been allocated by the council. According to a staff report, 76 applications were received, with about half meeting criteria and being approved. The report said staff do “not recommend an additional round of COVID recovery business grants,” noting the program was “undersubscribed.”
