Guests include Mike Weaver, Scott Gernhart, Blake Stubbs, Chris Howrey, Gary Chapman, Nick Rogers, Joe Barnes and Chad Thompson. During Open Forum, Gary Chapman asks questions about why the City put X’s on his sidewalk, including a section that dead-ends on his property, questions about the sidewalk project in general including estimated time frames and completion dates, and questions about which areas of town will be covered by the project. He requests that all residents be treated fairly and equally.

Chris Howrey also spoke and is interested in access to council documents before the meeting and requests more information about agenda items in general so she does not have to attend all council meetings.

Officer Joe Barnes gave a Police Department update. Mike Weaver gave a Public Works update. Weaver let the council know he is ready to start advertising to hire another Public Works employee hopefully by July 1st. He informed the council of the two applicants for the summer part-time mowing position, Zac Rocha and Ty Dennison. He recommends council hire them each at $11 per hour and allow flexible scheduling of around 5 hours a day to work around baseball commitments. Bauer motions to approve hiring Dennison and Rocha, seconded by Malm. Ayes, motion carries.

Council reviewed the bids for the proposed S. Pearl sidewalk and street patching project. Steinhoff submits a bid for $67,670. Weaver recommends dividing the project into two smaller projects and do one now and one after July 1. Weaver would like to omit the $5000 bid line item for seeding as he would like to do that himself. At this time, Weaver recommends the council award just the street patching portion for now, split the traffic section, and do the sidewalk portion after July 1st. This portion as bid would be $40,425. Malm motions to accept this proposal, seconded by Parks. Ayes, motion carries.

In the interest of the visitors to the meeting, the council agreed to move the Sidewalk Committee Recommendation item ahead on the agenda. The Committee’s current recommendations include focus on existing sidewalks in need of repairs for residences from Pearl Street to 3rd Street and from Main Street to Frontage Road. The recommended deadline for completed repairs is August of 2022. They got some of these guidelines from neighboring towns with similar sidewalk enforcement projects. Council discussed options and would like further discussion when full council is in attendance. Malm motions to table the issue, seconded by Parks. Ayes, motion carries. Council considers Resolution 2021-24 setting the Public Hearing on the Budget Amendment # 1 for FY 2020-21. Bauer motions to set the public hearing for June 16th at 5:30 pm, seconded by Conolly. Ayes, motion carries.
