City council holds special meeting

ELGIN — The Elgin City Council is holding a special session meeting tonight at 7 p.m. and will discuss, among other issues, a proposal to start a study in preparation for updating the wastewater system.

According to Laird Allen, city administrator/recorder, the city council will be talking about an upcoming Department of Environmental Quality update that could require the city to update their wastewater system tonight at city hall. 

Elgin City Council will also discuss a small city grant they received from the Oregon Department of Transportation special city allocation.

The Elgin Opera House received an invoice for a bill and the council will decide whether to pay for the bill now, before an audit is done to square away the city’s financial records, or after when the city has more of a grasp on how much money they have remaining in their restoration fund, Allen said.

The audit for the city’s financial records for the years 2012 through 2014 will begin this week.

Additionally on the agenda is discussion on the chip seal assessment and past due accounts, Elgin TV association franchise agreement, and allocation of funds for council members to attend the League of Oregon Cities Conference.

On Aug. 11, a public hearing will take place to give the community an opportunity to discuss the sheriff’s contract, which is up for renegotiation in January.


Elgin City Hall is located at 180 N. Eighth St., Elgin.
