Winslow City Administrator given raise after performance review

Winslow Mayor Jim Boles (r) presents an appreciation plaque to Roy Kenna, Chairmain of Winslow’s Committee on Disability Awareness.

Council also awarded Roy Kenna, who has served on Winslow’s Committee on Disability Awareness for the last 10 years, a plaque thanking him for his service. Kenna was present to accept his award and thanked his committee for the hard work they do.

“They are beautiful and dedicated people,” he said.

Council approved extending the current one-cent fee for fuel at the airport in response to a request made by the fixed based operator.

The original contract made with the FBO set April 2002 as the time when the fuel fee would increase from one cent to five cents.

Roche reported the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001 caused a decrease in fuel sales due to private aircraft flight being restricted. The café at the airport, Port Java, also closed around that time due to a death in the family, contributing to the loss of revenue.

Kerry Craddock, operational manager at the airport, reported an increase in the number of planes that stop at the airport and fueled up since the bans were lifted in January and The Last Resort Café opened its doors in March.

Councilman Tom McCauley made a motion that the one-cent fee be continued until Sept. 15, 2002 (the one-year anniversary of the FBO’s acquiring the airport). Craddock, or someone else from Winslow Air, will then return to the council and give an update on the item.

The Winslow Airport Commission took no action on this item and referred it to the city council.

Council heard the first reading of Ordinance No. 876, which establishes a definition for home occupations (Class I and Class II) and sets which residential areas will allow the different home occupations.

Under the existing ordinance, residential area R1-12 does not allow Home Occupation Class II. A Class II is a home occupation that has some traffic, one delivery a day and employees that do not live at the residence. The new ordinance does not change this issue.

Council asked City Planner Jane Zukowski if residents of R1-12 had been contacted about this issue. She reported no resident had come forward with any complaints.

McCauley suggested the residents be contacted so it does not seem they were discriminated against.

Council decided that letters explaining the new ordinance would be sent to homeowners in the area. Residents with complaints about the ordinance can contact council members or city staff before the ordinance’s adoption.

Council approved Resolution No. 1226, which approved the Low Rent Budget for the Fiscal Year 2003.

The council also accepted the canvass of votes from the general election held May 21, 2002.

On the consent calendar, the council took the following action:

• Approved the check register.

• Approved the appointment of Glen Christensen to fill an empty position on the Winslow Board of Adjustments.

• Approved the city’s agreement with Woodson Engineering of Flagstaff for city engineering services.

• Approved the purchase of a weed killer for the street division.

• Authorized the housing department to seek bids for the removal of fencing at the public housing complex.

• Authorized the housing department to seek bids for landscaping services at the public housing complex.
