Short as it ran just under 10 minutes and sweet for the Leprechaun cupcakes that served as a celebratory nod to holding the meeting on St. Patrick’s Day.
Among the order of business was the recognition of Kaley Hanson, the latest addition to the city council, effective March 10.
“I believe that Raymond is on the right track and hope to bring in a few new ideas with a new way of thinking about things,” said Hanson after the meeting.
After his acknowledgment to the position by Mayor Bob Jungar, the council got right down to business with a letter from American Legion Post #150. The letter, the annual request to hold the town’s Easter Egg Hunt, was passed without discussion and noted that the event will be held on April 20, at 1 pm at the 8th Street Park.
One item was brought up during the Public Comment session when a representative of the Public Market asked for assistance cleaning up debris that is outside the facility. Having previously brought the issue to the attention of the council, the area has still not been cleaned up. Public Works Director Dean Parsons advised that he would look into it.
Reports were void of any actionable content and the group called for adjournment at approximately 6:09 p.m.
The next regular Raymond City Council meeting is scheduled for April 7 at 6 pm.
