On Nov. 2, 2015, the Wilsonville City Council held a public hearing and approved an ordinance that amends Chapter 10 of Wilsonville City Code to reduce the penalties for first violations of certain lesser offenses related to dog control, skateboarding and unauthorized camping on public property. Citations on these charges are reduced from criminal misdemeanors to civil infractions, along with lowering the maximum penalties and potential imprisonment that apply to these violations.

The Council continued until the Dec. 7 a public hearing on an ordinance that establishes the factors to be considered when setting franchise fees for use of the public right-of-way.

Under Mayor’s Business the City Council approved the City Attorney’s employment contract and also the appointment of Dave Becker to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board to fill the vacant unexpired term of Adam Rahmlow that runs until Dec. 31, 2018.

Under Communications, the City Council welcomed a 20-student delegation accompanied by two chaperones from Wilsonville’s Sister City of Kitakata, Japan, who are visiting the U.S. until Nov. 7. Mayor Tim Knapp presented the delegation a gift to bring back to Mayor Shinya Yamaguchi of Kitakata, Japan. Also during this portion of the meeting, Library Director Patrick Duke introduced the Library’s new Outreach Librarian, Deborah Gitlitz, who is focused on reaching out to populations who are currently underserved by the Library and also promoting early-childhood literacy programs throughout the community.

Under New Business, the Council approved program guidelines governing the use of City funds for a utility-bill assistance program administered by Wilsonville Community Sharing, a local food-bank and emergency-assistance provider. The program provides income-eligible community members short-term financial assistance in order to pay utility bills.

After the meeting, the members of the City Council, acting in their role as the Urban Renewal Agency Board, accepted the highest bid of $5.1 million offered by Polygon WLH LLC for a 10-acre parcel of surplus property on Tooze Road originally acquired for use as a primary-school site in Villebois. All proceeds from the sale of the surplus property are to be returned to the Urban Renewal Agency.

At work session prior to the City Council meeting, the Council heard updates and discussed the Wilsonville-Metro Community Enhancement Program, laws and alternatives for regulating marijuana-related businesses in Wilsonville, Board and Commission terms of office and a proposed grant applications to ODOT for bike/ped trail and bridge improvements.
