COLUMBIA — Interviews for two influential boards, designs for the planned Short Street garage and a discussion of new ward boundaries are all on the agenda for a Columbia City Council work session at 5 p.m. Monday.
The meeting, which is open to the public, will take place in conference rooms 1A/1B at City Hall, 701 E. Broadway.
The council will interview three candidates each for vacancies on the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Citizens Police Review Board. The planning commission candidates are Brent Brown, James Downey and Rusty Strodtman.
Applicants for the police review board are Charles Poe, Merwyn Alexander and Jerry Kennett.
Regarding the Short Street garage, council members will discuss three different variations of one proposed plan for the garage, which is planned in conjunction with the proposed redevelopment of The Regency hotel downtown.
Also on the agenda is ward reapportionment. Columbia is redrawing ward boundaries to equalize the populations of each of the six wards in the wake of the 2010 U.S. Census.
Discussion also is open to any other issues the council might wish to discuss.
