Police Department Policy Manual. This document will be on the agenda for approval at the January 2021 meeting.

 

Budget committee work sessions were scheduled for January.

 

Council Member’s Comments – Reimers spoke to the council about the Legacy Housing Committee’s plans to have the fix up grant for 2021 be exclusive to sidewalks. There was a lot of discussion on this as well as questions. Council will update themselves on the current sidewalk code. Reimers, Liston, Dan Buzzell and Chad Thede will get together and look at sidewalks on some designated routes. Reimers will speak to the housing committee as well. The council didn’t agree it should be exclusive to sidewalks. There were many projects not finalized this year due to the derecho and covid. It would be nice if those individuals could still apply. Liston updated the council on meetings with the tree committee. The committee should be ready to bring a recommendation to the council soon. The new chipper has been delivered. Dan and Annie Lake’s tree is scheduled to be removed.

 

Motion by Liston, second by Weber to adjourn at 7:55 p.m.

Ayes: All Present, Motion Carried.
