Willow Park workshop, city council meetings 9/20/10

September 20, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

Willow Park City Hall
11:51p.m.-No action taken in executive session. Meeting adjourned.

10:46p.m. After short discussions, the council goes into executive session.

10:37p.m.-The Pyle and Fawcett additions are new developments coming to Willow Park. Hawkins just said that Gordon Swift is the engineer for the developer of that project who is out of San Francisco.

Hawkins then raised questions as to how the city could afford a consulting engineer given next year's budget.
