Labor market study, MCAS training on council agenda
City officials to hold a regular meeting on Wednesday
The Yuma City Council will kick off its Wednesday meeting with two presentations, one on labor market study findings, recommendations and implementation options.
The other presentation will be by the Marine Corps Air Station on the next Weapons and Tactics Instructor course.
In addition, the council will hold a public hearing on a request by Bio Realty Group to amend the land use designation of properties at 868 and 920 S. Avenue B from low density residential to mixed use with the intent of developing medical offices. The council may approve the minor general plan amendment by adopting a resolution.
One ordinance is up for adoption, which would authorize the acquisition of 10 feet of right-of-way along the northwest corner of Gila Ridge Road and Avenue 3E by gift from Maverik Inc. The easement dedication is needed to ensure safe right turn access into the property, according to the city.
