However, with a public hearing already scheduled for the June 10th meeting it was discussed with City Attorney Clanton that the SOP could be amended to allow an electronic quorum in certain circumstances. It was decided to hold a short Special Council Meeting on Monday, June 3rd at 5:30 p.m. immediately before the Council Strategic Planning Session that was already slated for that evening to allow an amendment in order to hold the June 10th meeting with an electronic quorum.

Council Member Sampson informed council Lincoln Highway Days will be moved to the fairgrounds. There will be more rides and events happening. Council Member Hanson reported Lincoln Highway Days, Rodeo and a wedding will all be held on Saturday night at the fairgrounds. The Rodeo bought additional bleachers and are looking at shuttles for parking. They are also interested in expanding the crow’s nest at the arena for better viewing. Council Member Nealson advised the next community coffee is scheduled for June 8th. The Story County Freedom Run is slated for June 22nd with a pancake breakfast. Council Member Mittman advised she is working with YSS leadership in regards to a possible Drug Free Community Grant. It would require matching funds.

Street Supervisor Rydl reported staff has been working on potholes and intakes trying to keep ahead. They are looking forward to getting the patcher.

Library Director Speer advised they have hired three student clerks. They will also be losing a part time staff clerk in August that will be replaced. There are a lot of upcoming summer programs.

Park and Recreation Director Hansen noted he appreciated all the help they have received from the other departments.

Public Safety Director Martinez relayed they have thirteen interviews this week for their two openings. They are slated to go to the academy in August/September. He noted his concerns about Lincoln Highway Days returning to the fair grounds because of parking issues. Need to have parking on only one side of the street to allow emergency vehicles to pass. Also inform residents in the area who they could call on the committee if there are issues.

City Engineer Stevens updated the council on the ongoing projects. Lincoln Highway/W 18th Street intersection is getting close to completion. The rain has delayed the project. The Central Business District Project is scheduled for a public meeting on June 18th and the steering committee is meeting on June 4th.
