Some good economic news will emerge from Tuesday night's Covington City Commission meeting. On the agenda is approval of a commitment to a 1% occupational tax rebate for Tier 1 Performance Solutions which plans to relocate from 5th Street offices (at the Grand) to one of the RiverCenter towers. When reached by telephone two weeks ago, no one at Corporex was willing to confirm the news to The River City News and the leader of Tier 1 wanted to wait until the deal was final. The move is expected to offset a good chunk of Omnicare's abandoned space.
Also on the agenda to be voted on:
  • a property assessment moratorium for BC Investors for the property at 603 Main Street. BC Investors is the organization that plans to open a Goodfellas Pizza in Mainstrasse. It was voted the best pizza in Lexington where there are two locations. This will be the group's first location outside of that city and will be an awesome addition to Mainstrasse.

  • Reimbursement of funds ($228,553) to Covington Iron Works, LLC for Stewart Iron Works relocation (payable from CDBG funds)
  • Accepting the $400,000 bid by Mark Spaulding Construction for the Devou Park bandshell restroom/concessions facility (payable from Devou Park master plan funds)
  • Approval of the Linden Grove Cemetery master plan; 
  • Purchase of a new Ford Expedition to be part of the fire department's fleet ($37,891)
  • A lease agreement with TANK for the parking lot under the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge
  • City will offer condolences to the family of Shirley Fry, longtime clerk in the police department, who recently passed away
  • The commission will vote to recognize January 16 as the Martin Luther King, Jr holiday
Sadly, Mayor Chuck Scheper is not expected to attend tonight's meeting following the death of his mother-in-law. Our condolences are with the Mayor & Mrs. Scheper during the difficult time.
