* Water Feature Discussion -- no formal vote but discussion steered towards improvements/maintenance to existing creek rather than building a new pond. This pond-vs-creek discussion has been on-going for years but Glen Reser asked that the park board work toward a formal recommendation soon rather than wait for another rushed year-end deadline for potential grant funds.

The June 17th (4:30pm) park board meeting will be held at the city park to discuss possible locations for the following equipment:
* (12) park table/bench combos
* (8) trash receptacles
