The intention of this program is to spur more residential development in the downtown.
If approved the city would reimburse up to 50% of the total project cost of a sprinkler system, up to a maximum of $20,000, subject to availability of funds.
Council will also discuss budgeting $10,000 annually for the upkeep of Hope Cemetery.
Members of the foundation that oversees the historic and private cemetery made the request at the last Council meeting.
Council on Monday can also approve the 2023 property tax levy.
While the levy amount requested is almost 5 percent more than 2022, property tax owners should actually see a tax rate decrease. That’s because of a rising value of assessed properties in the city.
The increases in the levy request are 6 percent increases for the police and fire pensions and a 10 percent increase for the public library.
