CANNON BEACH - Despite cold temperatures and icy roads, the Cannon Beach City Council met briefly Tuesday.

Councilors approved new fee schedules and calculation methodology for structural, mechanical and plumbing permits. Most fees will stay the same, with a few slight increases.

"This brings all of our building permit fees in line with other cities and Clatsop County," City Manager Peggy Coats said. "The cities are trying to do this so the county has a uniform fee schedule."

In other action, councilors:

• Dissolved their part in North Coast Senior Services, the last action the city had to take as part of the intergovernmental agreement with several other cities. North Coast Senior Services now comes under the direction and administration of Mid-Willamette Valley Senior Services, because mid-Willamette Valley Senior Services.

• Approved a city investment policy which formalizes and preserves the guidelines for insuring that public funds are invested safely and with high liquidity. This policy has been recommended and reviewed by the Oregon State Treasury. "No matter who is here in staffing, we now have a formal policy on how we should be investing," Coats said.

• Approved an Umpqua Street local improvement district for the purpose of improving and paving the road. There was no objection at the public hearing.

• Rescheduled a public hearing for the formation of a Fernwood and Pacific streets local improvement district to Feb. 3, the next regular council meeting.

• Approved the recommendations by the Parks and Community Services Committee for the 2003-04 community grants totaling $24,800. The two largest recipients are Clatsop Community Action, $3,500; and the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, $2,500.
