City Council

City Council Update - May 1, 2017

Citizens comments: Christopher Maloney asked what is the process to get a monument erected to Martin Luther King. The City currently has no monuments of national figures and no policy for erecting a monument but will respond via e-mail or letter.

Ordinance for sidewalks closed due to construction: It was the first reading of an amendment to ordinance (Chapter 74, Article III) that would require a builder to provide a safe passage (alternate route, partial closure or temporary walkway) when a sidewalk in the City right-of-way is closed due to construction. The ordinance states that the sidewalk can’t be closed for more 90 days. City Council wants to add a handicap accessible requirement to the ordinance.
