The Ione City Council met Tuesday evening to review a full agenda including a presentation by CAO Terri Daly concerning the Buena Vista Casino Workshops. Jackson Police Chief Scott Morrison, members of the Jackson Police Department and Sheriff Martin Ryan were also on hand to show support for newly appointed Police Chief Johnson, stating that he is an excellent choice for the position. Also on the agenda were Amador Fire Protection District issues, including allocation of funds, consolidation, and whether or not to propose a sales tax or property tax to pay for fire services. Councilman and Vice Mayor Lee Ard stated that he is concerned as it currently seems the only jurisdiction within the Fire Protection District moving forward is the City of Ione, and he feels it is very important that the City stay in control of the Ione Fire Dept. Council discussion concluded that a property tax was not supported and the city would only back a special tax if a plan for appropriation of funds was drafted. Ione City Councils next scheduled meeting on Feruary 19 will include the Mid-Year Budget Review. The County reminded citizens of Ione that questions and comments on city issues could be directed to a newly set-up voicemail hotline 257.5099
