The Nome City Council has a slim list of business on the agenda for tonight’s regular meeting.

An important item, though, is the second reading of the 2018 Operations and Maintenance budget for Nome Joint Utility System (NJUS). The only piece of new business on the Council’s list is an ordinance to dispose of municipal property. Through a lease agreement, the City plans on transferring a slightly less than 3,000 square foot property [Block 50, Lot 5A] to Jessica and Howard Farley, Jr.

Before adjourning tonight’s regular meeting, Mayor Richard Beneville could make a motion to reappoint Katherine Scott to the Library and Museum Commission.

The City Council’s regular meeting convenes Monday at 7pm in Council Chambers.
