Golden City Council voted on the following legislation during its Jan. 24 meeting. Council members in attendance were Mayor Marjorie Sloan, Mayor Pro Tem Joe Behm, District 1 Councilor Saoirse Charis-Graves, District 2 Councilor Marcie Miller, Ward 1 Councilor Marcia Claxton, Ward 3 Bob Vermeulen, and Ward 4 Councilor Bill Fisher.
Council unanimously approved a $15,000 grant to Bell Middle School, in support of that school’s iSTEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) program. The school has reported the education program, now in its second year, has been popular with students and should help steer more students into sought-after professional fields.
Two members of the Economic Development Commission (EdComm) presented that group’s 2012 Report, and 2013 Work Plan to the City Council. The Council praised the quality of the report, and thanked them for their efforts. A copy of the 2012 report is available on the city website (www.cityofgolden.net) Economic Development Commission page.
The next council meeting is 6:30 p.m. Feb. 21 at City Hall, 911 10th Street.
