Discuss and Action:

00:16:06 1. Trick or Treat Night

NOTES: A lot of other towns are doing the 30th. City will do theirs on October 30th 5-7pm

00:16:40 2. Consider Resolution 21-16 Hiring and Settings Salary for City Clerk

NOTES: Reading. Didn't we already set a wage? Kind of. Set for the part time work but not the full time. $17 per hour. Raised it due to the fact she will be doing more than the "normal" clerk work and doing some maintenance work.

Motioned for Lacy to earn 17 per hour as clerk. - Approved 00:18:45

00:19:30 3. Consider Resolution 21-17 Proposing Disposal of an intrest in property by sale (setting the pulic hearing date)

NOTES: Setting the date for the public hearing for the sale of the alleys. Motion to approve 00:21:20

00:21:25 4. Consider Resolution 21-18 Rate reduction for SRF Water Revenue Bond

Motion to approve 00:23:30 Approved

00:23:40 5. Consider Resolution 21-19 Establishing a new city attorney

NOTES: Reading - Motion to Approve 25:00 Approved

00:25:55 6. Decide on special election for LOST funds public measure or wait until March 2022

NOTES: There is a new elections deputy. Was told to have it in by 15th month prior to elections but that was wrong. State law is 60 days prior to the election. Town could do a special election but will cost 88$ at minum. A few hundred is expected for cost, or wait till next election which is in March and that would be free. That will be cutting it close to pool season though. It can be done but not easily. Need new equipment, repair work that needs to be done. Probably be difficult to get lifeguards at that time. If the vote decides to close the pool they might be able to sell it if not then they will move forward with removing the pool.

Reporter Questions: Dees the city have the funds for special elections? Yes. It comes out of the pool funds.

Question 2: Is that legal? Yes. Sense the decision is affecting the pool then they funds can be taken out of ‘pool funds’

Planning on doing the special election to be on January 11 2022. It'll be at the town hall. Clerk will contact the Elections deputy for what the rules are about establishing hours.

34:10 - Approved.

34:20 Adjourned.
