Luther

BELOIT - The Beloit City Council could take action Monday night approving an amendment to City Manager Lori Curtis Luther's contract, as part of the council's annual review of Beloit's top administrator.

According to the agenda, the council's amendment, if approved, would authorize a 2 percent wage increase, something that was given to all non-represented city staff as of Jan. 1, 2019. Luther was paid $167,687 in 2018 following a scheduled raise approved by council last April.

The amendment is set to also include an annual vehicle allowance of $3,600, with payments to begin next month, along with a total of 25 vacation days on the same implementation schedule as non-union employees.

Copies of the council evaluations of Luther's performance in 2018 will be completed and released following the council's vote on Monday night, according to Strategic Communications Director Sarah Millard.

In other business:

• The council will meet at 6 p.m. Monday to interview and consider the appointment of Rongal Watson to replace outgoing Police and Fire Commission member Tressy Brown to a term ending April 30, 2024.

• Fourth Street closure: The council could also start the process of vacating a portion of Fourth Street in front of Beloit Memorial High School for permanent closure following a temporary closure that started last summer. Approximately 1 acre, or the 1200 block of Fourth Street, will be vacated and set to be closed permanently. The petition by the School District of Beloit Board of Education will be referred to the Beloit Plan Commission after being accepted by the council. A public hearing is "tentatively scheduled" for the regular June 3 council meeting, according to the agenda.

• Bridge dedication: the council could approve the installation of one sign and two markers identifying the Portland Avenue bridge after former Beloit city councilor Walter R. Knight, the city's first black council member.

• Reorganization: The council will hold its reorganization following the April 3 election at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday at the City Hall Forum, 100 State St.
