West St. Paul City Council waded into an unexpected debate over ward representation on the Planning Commission. Other topics included medical clinic denial and approval, city hall improvements, sidewalks and trails, and some important recognitions.
City hall renovations and new sidewalk/trails are on the agenda, as well as some conflict over medical clinic permits and a Planning Commission appointment.
Discussion included the proposed 2022 budget and the setting for future Open Council Work Session meetings. Nearly half of the regular meeting was taken up with citizen comments from a former Council member.
There’s not a lot of action on the agenda for the regular West St. Paul City Council meeting, though the OCWS will get into the 2022 budget and potentially revamping how OCWS operates.
The West St. Paul City Council passed the 2021 budget and tax levy, reviewed improvements for Thompson Park, and passed liquor license rebates for 2021.
The last City Council meeting of the year will be closed to public attendance but still broadcast. The 2021 budget is the big item on the agenda.
