The city council met Monday to vote on several proposals that were presented and discussed at Thursday’s workshop. All council members were present. One item was tabled and several others were passed.
The tabled proposal was concerning monthly fees for RVs and horse pens at the Nature Preserve. The current proposal does not include a time limit on how long the facilities can be rented. There was concern voiced that renters would make their stays permanent. A common practice is to require travelers to leave for at least two weeks after a six-week stay. Council members will investigate the inclusion of a time limit before voting on the proposal.
Passed items included a non-exclusive franchise agreement with AEP SWEPCO, amending payment to the city by credit card, PayPal, or other secure electronic means, action on water projects, and street and road projects. There was no City Administrator briefing before the meeting adjourned.
