city's continued participation in the program.
The commissioners also
approved a proclamation supporting the 35th Annual Municipal Clerks Week (May
A resolution authorizing
the improvements and $19,000 city funding for the 5th and Main intersection
work were approved. The state will fund the majority of the ~$95K project
which might begin as early as this May.
One anticipated topic
of old business deferred from the March
15th city meeting that could not legally be discussed as it was not placed
on the agenda for this meeting. That topic was: "Discussion and possible
action regarding prohibiting the sale and/or consumption of alcohol or intoxicating
beverages on public right of ways." City Manager Mike Tinker took responsibily
for the slip-up as he had filled in for the City Clerk at that previous meeting.
Mike apologized for the oversight and assured it would be on the next regular
agenda (April 19th).
The meeting switched to
executive session to discuss the 2004-05 Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) contract.
