City commissioners approved a replat of a residential area, paid more than $1 million in bills and endorsed a proposal to take a high-tech approach to their economic development efforts during their monthly meeting, Monday evening.

With six of the council’s seven members present — Ward 1 council member Robert Krows was absent — the group made short work of their four-page agenda.

After disposing of their consent items, which included about $1 million is claims and expenditures, council members voted 6-0 to approve a replat of lost 28 thorough 32 and lots 45 of the Renaissance Crossing residential development. The council’s endorsement came despite a unanimous, 7-0 denial recommendation by the city’s Planning Commission.

“The planning commission recommended the denial due to parking and safety concerns,” said public works director, Elizabeth Jones. The plat was approved by a 6-0 vote.

Following that vote council member also endorsed spending $10,000 to purchase an new demographic analysis of the community from the Buxton Company.

That information, economic development director Deidre Ebrey said, would be used by the city for its economic development efforts.

“These people are the tops in their class and their data helps us match our city with potential businesses,” Ebrey said.

In other action the council approved:

• Renewal of the mowing and nuisance abatement contract with Specialty Irrigation and Landscaping.

• The purchase of a slope mower to be used by the Street Department.

• Authorizing staff to negotiate an agreement with Apollo Building Systems, Inc., to provide construction management services for the public safety building projects.
