CITIZENS IN ATTENDANCE
There were 4 citizens in attendance for an agenda item.

ORDINANCE 844 – an ordinance creating Section 2.06 to the Code of Ordinances to set the compensation for Mayor and City Council members as recommended by the Committee of the Whole was presented. This was the 1st reading. The City Administrator recommended language changes to include replacing “the third Tuesday in November, 2018” in paragraph 2.06 A. to “the November 6, 2018 election”. The City Administrator questioned whether or not the Council wanted to increase the Mayor’s compensation to match the proposed increase in Council compensation. Alderperson Olson recommended changing the Mayor’s compensation from $625.00 to $700.00 per month and there were no objections. The ordinance will be presented with the recommended changes at the October Common Council meeting for a 2nd reading and possible action.

All four citizens in attendance were in favor of approving the requests from Carpi’s Bar LLC to temporarily modify their premises for two events planned at their place of business. There was discussion on emergency vehicle access and whether or not the Council had the authority to approve the request. The City Administrator acknowledged that this had been done in the past and while fire and EMS vehicles do not enter alleys, there would be access to emergency staff, and a similar request was previously approved by the Council for a street event. There were no objections.
