On Tuesday, the Bethel City Council will look at introducing an ordinance that would compensate city council members for their duties. Council member Fritz Charles proposed the ordinance, which would pay council members $300 per month and subsidize their water and sewer costs. Council member duties include participating in regular city council meetings, special meetings, and budget meetings. Each council member must also be a member of at least one committee or commission for the city. 

City council will also discuss an agreement for the proposed Ciullkulek Subdivision. The agreement for the 17-acre subdivision requires ONC to pay for over $2 million in infrastructure improvements.  

Also on the agenda are quarterly personnel evaluations for City Attorney Patty Burley and City Manager Pete Williams. As he did three months ago, Williams intends to request that his evaluation take place in public. 

Tune in tomorrow for a live broadcast of the City Council Meeting at 6:30 pm on 640 AM.
