Councilmen will consider a bid for the project, which entails transforming the former Morgan City Swamp Gardens into a passive park.
The council also anticipates readopting its millage rates for the 2011 tax year as well as its adjusted millage rates.
While the rates were adopted in June, city officials submitted erroneous information for the tax advertisement in The Daily Review, the city’s official journal, meaning city leaders had to readvertise.
At the June meeting, the council unanimously agreed to set those millage rates at 16.89 mills, down from 17.63 mills that were collected in 2010, but the maximum amount they could collect for this year.
The adjusted millage included 14.78 in general alimony mills and 2.11 in mills for the upkeep of the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium.
The new millage rate, Matte said, would mean that taxpayers would pay slightly less in 2011 than in 2010, but that the city would collect $53,000 more in revenue on newly assessed properties that weren’t on the tax rolls last year.
Also during Tuesday’s meeting, the council also will consider a bid for flood protection baskets the city no longer needs from this year’s flood fight.
In other action, the council anticipates appearances from Billy Nungesser, Plaquemines Parish president, and P.J. Hahn, director of Coastal Zone Management, as well as Beverly Domengeaux, director of the St. Mary Parish Council on Aging, and Steve Morell, Morgan City Main Street manager.
Other agenda items include:
—An update on the city’s sewer and water projects.
—Resolutions declaring items as surplus property and supporting its Local Government Assistance Program application.
—A resolution of respect for Frank Joseph Domino Sr.
The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the City Courthouse (corner of Business 90 and Myrtle Street). It is open to the public.
