Hearings Examiner closes the Public Hearing

Hearings Examiner Andrew Reeves closed the hearing to public comment and has kept the record open for additional comments from the attorney representing Save Hicks Lake by June 1, and for responses to public comment from the applicant by June 6.  Mr. Reeves will issue a written recommendation to the City Council 2 to 3 weeks after that date.

The City Council will consider the Examiners recommendation at a regular meeting, open to the public, notice of which will be sent to all parties of record. In the matter of Shoreline Permits, the Examiner creates the record and makes a recommendation to the City Council based on that record.  The Council, acting in its quasi-judicial role, reviews the record and the Examiner’s recommendation and may approve, modify, or reverse the recommendation of the Examiner.  No new evidence or testimony may be considered by the Council.
