Sorry, I won't have the results from Monday's meeting finished until sometime Tuesday. The quick version is: no vote on alcohol topic, free landfill date moved to May 15, all other topics approved per agenda.

Guess I'm further behind than I thought -- 3:30am Wed 4/21 update: The key item in the alcohol discussion was a report by City Attorney (Ken Underwood) that current laws and city ordinances already cover the action requested by Pastors Brumley and Limbocker (and others). The city commission has the authority to make exceptions to those ordinances (as they have done the past two years for the Hog 'N' Hot Rods "special event". When polled individually by Pastor Limbocker, several commissioners hedged that they wouldn't decide until hearing this year's proposal by the event organizers (Collinsville Downtown, Inc. and Greybeards). Commissioner Porter has voted against the alcohol exception in the past and said she would again. Commissioners Rogers and Sallee voted for the exception in the past. Commissioner Overholt took office after last year's vote on the issue.
