The Avondale Estates City Commission has a packed June 16 work session agenda.

It includes a discussion about a request for proposals to improve Willis Park and an item called “Official Tree Species List Ordinance Amendment.”

There will also be an update on the city’s proposed millage rate.

The full agenda can be found by clicking here.

Unlike previous work sessions, no work session agenda packets have been published on the city’s website. Those usually contain in-depth information about what commissioners will discuss.

The city has been short staffed recently. City Clerk Juliette Sims-Owens abruptly left one month ago and the city hasn’t named her replacement.

The June 16 meeting begins after a 5:30 p.m. special called meeting on the city’s millage rate. The meeting will be held at City Hall, located at 21 North Avondale Plaza. All meetings are open to the public.

Clarification: An earlier headline attempted to describe what would be discussed at the June 16 meeting. A reader familiar with the topics on the agenda clarified that the commission will not be discussing a proposed residential tree ordinance, which is still under review.

    Note, this is NOT in reference to the proposed residential tree ordinance still in review/comment/drafting status. The item is in reference to an updated tree species list for trees intended for public property. So there is no agenda item related to the proposed residential ordinance.
