The city of Lodi could move one step closer to having a Walmart Supercenter at tonight’s city council meeting.
The council will meet in closed session to discuss the prospective sale of a 40-acre easement near the White Slough Water Pollution Control Center. The sale would help mitigate the impact of the planned big-box store at the intersection of Lower Sacramento Road and Kettleman Lane. The city owns 1,000 acres of agricultural land in that zone.
City Attorney Steve Schwabauer said he does not expect a resolution to the project out of this meeting, but discussing the prospective sale of the easement is a clear step forward.
In other action:
The council is also expected to approve a $1,028,646 contract with Teichert Construction in Stockton to repave Ham Lane from Lodi Avenue north to Turner Road.
If approved, the afterschool Bridge Program at 13 Lodi Unified School District sites will continue to have support staff from the city for $580,000.
Appointments are planned to the Lodi Public Library Board of Trustees, the Lodi Arts Commission and the San Joaquin County Local Agency Foundation Commission.
