A look at some of the issues the City Council considered in its meeting Tuesday:
Issue: Property tax rates
What it means: The council was asked to adopt an emergency resolution listing proposed and "rolled-back" property tax rates for the coming year, which the county property appraiser mails to property owners. The proposed rate - the same as this year - is the highest the council can impose without mailing new notices.
Bill No. 2011-401
Issue: Restricting mobile vendors
What it means: The council was asked to withdraw a bill that would have forbidden mobile vendors such as roadside rug or plant merchants from setting up shop within a mile of a similar business.
Bill No. 2010-856
Issue: Kaman Aerospace aid
What it means: The council was asked to approve an agreement for Kaman to seek up to $2.1 million in state and city aid if it adds 200 jobs to a plant in the Imeson area. It could also get a $231,000 grant.
Bill No. 2011-384
Issue: St. Johns River City Band funds
What it means: The council was asked to retroactively approve grants to the band and remove it from the auditor's list of groups not complying with city finance rules.
Bill No. 2011-318
