Jackson Welcomes New City Manager

The Jackson City Council welcomed a new City Manager on Monday night, and approved funding for a number of community organizations.   New Jackson City Manager Yvonne Kimball was sworn in at the beginning of Monday's night's meeting, followed by a reception to allow city resident to meet the city's new head official.   When the Council returned to business, they voted to award Measure E transient occupancy tax money to three organizations to promote or encourage visits to the city.  $28,000 was awarded to the Chamber of Commerce and $5,000 was given to the Amador Tourism Council and Main Street Theater Works.  In separate items, the Council voted to award $5,000 to the Kennedy Mine for help in cleaning up after the recent fire and $5,000 to the Amador County Recreation Agency to support ACRA's after-school program at the HUB on Main Street.   The Council also held a second and final reading of an ordinance that bans commercial marijuana shops from the city, and voted to approve a new fee for business licenses in the city.  It will now cost $30 to apply for a new business in Jackson, and cost $15 dollars a year to renew a license.  The new fee is expected to raise $9,000 per year.
