Among the several items to be covered at next Wednesday's regular meeting, the Elk Grove City Council will receive reports on the city's first ever ice rink promotion and an update on economic development efforts.
City Manager Laura Gill will deliver results from the city's ice rink operation which ran from November until January. The ice rink was held on the Old Town Elk Grove Parcel the city recently purchased for over a $1 million from Union Pacific Railroad.
According to documents that accompany the report, the ice rink earned $57,380 in revenue and expenses were $133,900. When the council approved the ice rink estimated program revenues were $110,000.
The council will also hear a update from Randy Starbuck on the city's economic development efforts. Starbucks report notes that efforts "continues to be a 'work in progress' and will evolve over time to provide Council with the most complete picture possible of City economic development activities as well as the Elk Grove/regional economy."
Starbuck will also update the council on his department's wayfinding sign project. Wednesday's meeting starts at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
