- In other action
On Tuesday, the Galt City Council also:
- Voted 3-1 (with Councilman Curt Campion dissenting) to extend the temporary fee reduction incentive program for single-family residential homes through May 1, 2014, although there is a potential revenue loss of $1.3 million in fees. The program was set to expire Nov. 4. To date, 27 permits have been completed during the last 17 months of the 18-month program.
- Discussed in closed session City Manager Jason Behrmann’s annual performance review. Details were not made public.
- Received a report and conceptual plan from a developer interested in building on a large east side housing development on 350 acres east of Liberty Ranch High School. The planning process started two years ago.

By 2016, a new entertainment complex will anchor Old Town in Galt. Major retailers will be attracted to Twin Cities and Simmerhorn roads commercial infrastructure improvements. And the industrial area will have at least five niche entrepreneurial businesses serving local markets.
Those are among the plans in the city’s newly released Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. Once submitted to and approved by the federal Economic Development Administration, the city will be able to compete for grants and other incentives to meet these goals and others outlined in the document.
