Following the official Call to Order, Roll Call, and Pledge of Allegiance, the Vader City Council quickly moved into their agenda for that night's City Council Meeting.
As the Council moved to the time for Mayor's Report, Mayor Kenneth Smith notified the Council he had none. Next was the Agenda Approval, at this time Mayor Smith requested to add a report from Law Enforcement and Councilwoman Judi Costello requested to add an item to the agenda about the Street Crossing signs.
Once the changes were added Councilman Andy Wilson made the motion to approve. Councilwoman Costello seconded and the motion carried unanimously.
After the Minutes and Voucher Approvals it was time for Public Comment. Under Public Comment only one citizen had signed up to make a comment. At this time a representative from the Country Cruisers Car Club asked the Mayor to approve the application they had sent in to request McMurphy Park after a brief discussion of the approval procedures, Mayor Smith approved her request. Next, the Sheriff's Department came forward to give a presentation on 2015 and 2016 year of activity. Following his report, the Council moved into the City Business.
First on the Agenda was the topic of "Council to Consider Vacancy for Position #2." Once the topic was open for nominations Councilman Andy Wilson raised his hand to nominate Jason Daily. Next Councilman Joe Schey nominated Kevin Flynn. After the nominations were made Mayor Smith put the nominations to a vote. With three to one, Jason Daily was given the number two position on the City Council. Once Daily was sworn in the Council moved to item number two.
Under this topic, the Council and audience listened to a report on the "Income Survey Results and options - with Cathi Read and Scott Pollock." During this presentation, Cathi Read told the Council about the different results from the surveys and why the City no longer qualified for certain grants that the city usually relied on. After they discussed different options with the Council, no questions were asked and the Council continued onto the next agenda item.
For the third agenda item the Council was "to consider and hear the second reading of Ordinance 2016-01 - Franchise Agreement with Astound Cellular." Once the background of the topic was addressed Pete Anderson from the company came forward if the Council should have any questions. It was discussed that a wire was needed to go through the city of Vader to reach one of the outer towers. After a short discussion of the different permits, Councilman Wilson moved to approve. With a second from Councilman Schey and the rest of the Council all in favor the vote passed.
The fourth and final item on the agenda was the added matter about the Crosswalk Signs. Councilwoman Costello brought forth a blinking light she had found and showed it to the Council as an example of what could be used at the crosswalks. The Council proceeded to discuss the amount of lights needed and the cost.
It was established the amount of the lights would be small so the Council agreed no motion was needed.
With nothing further on the agenda the Council moved to adjourn.
