Goldendale City Council has a busy agenda for tonight

For the final meeting of the Goldendale City Council for 2017,  tonight’s agenda includes a number of housekeeping items, including a budget amendment for the fourth quarter, approval of the city budget for 2018, increases on water and sewer rates, starting in January, a revised sick leave policy, and a rare event – repeal of an ordinance. In this case council will vote on repealing a 1959 ordinance that required a cabaret licence and a dance tax for any business that allowed dancing on the premises. Authorities consider that no longer relevant and want to clean it off the books.

Below are the propose rate changes for this year and the next couple of years
