Cathedral City meet to discuss future, projects impacted by Tropical Storm Hilary

On Saturday, Cathedral City leaders will gather to plan for the upcoming year.

Officials will be looking at the five-year-strategic plan and also what projects were impacted by Tropical Storm Hilary.

News Channel 3's Peter Daut spoke with the City Manager Charlie McClendon says there are a number of projects that were impacted by Tropical Storm Hilary.

McClendon says the city had set aside about $1.6 million in street projects. Some of those have now been delayed, while others had to find other funding sources including grants.

The city also had to delay about $400,000 in improvement projects for parks.

On Saturday, the city will be looking at its five-year strategic plan to determine what needs to be amended.. and also where things stand with getting reimbursements from FEMA.

"Based on what's been going on this year, it seems things have shifted a little bit," McClendon told Peter Daut. "We did have to do some things differently. We'll be looking at where we can slot those items that were deferred in so we can still get them done, perhaps on a more delayed schedule."

Saturday's session is open to the public and begins at 8:00 AM at the Doubletree Hotel in Cathedral City.
