4.7.2021 Common Council Meeting

We had our first in-person meeting since March 2020. It was great to be back in person, and it was nice to formally meet with all our elected officials.
Mayor Boyd read a statement from the City honoring Jerry Hasenberg, Jr., the city employee who died while performing tree maintenance in March. His wife, Vanessa, and his three stepsons attended the meeting. Vanessa spoke about her late husband and encouraged everyone to plant trees to honor his legacy.
Plans are underway for a multi-use building at Voyageur Park. Council voted unanimously to approve the design of the facility.  Mayor Boyd will create an ad hoc committee for fundraising up to $700,000 and the Council voted to approve City funding of up to $500,000 for the building. Construction is set to commence in 2023. 

City Council voted unanimously to approve a park ban and appeal policy to help mitigate certain behaviors at our Parks. 
The Council also decided to end the City’s mask mandate on May 5. With the vaccine now available to anyone over the age of 16, this date provides time for anyone who wants a vaccine to have at least one dose prior to ending our mandate. The Council will have the opportunity to discuss this again at the meeting on May 4. 
Residents who want to help pollinators in early spring will now have the opportunity to participate in No Mow May – stay tuned for more information on how to participate! 
The full agenda and meeting video is available at the link below. Have a great weekend!
