Council Eyes User Fees, Truck Routes On April 2

The regularly scheduled Escalon City Council meeting of March 19 featured an initial introduction to a user fee schedule that will be considered at the council meeting of April 2 during a public hearing.

“These include fees associated with Planning, Engineering, Building, Community Center, Recreation, Police and Animal Control,” said City Manager Tammy Alcantor.

The public hearing will include time for residents to ask questions or voice concerns about the proposed fees.

Also at the March 19 session, there were first readings of proposed changes to ordinances regarding the truck route and parking.

“The truck route changes will eliminate all streets with the exception of Highway 120, McHenry, and Escalon Avenue,” Alcantor noted. “If trucks are making deliveries they are allowed to travel on other roadways.”

That will be on the agenda for April 2 as well, with a second reading and adoption of the truck route and parking changes.

Council meetings are regularly held the first and third Mondays at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at 2060 McHenry Ave.
