Mayor/Council
Comments:
CM Balmer asked if progress is going to be made in clearing
Jacobson Bear Creek Park as he has heard many residents excited to add disc
golf.  It will be worked on as able after
it dries and as time allows, new equipment was budgeted for that will help.

CM Burres suggested adding signs that say the speed limit
will increase ahead to keep vehicles from speeding up.  The sign going into Story City by the
windmill place that says the speed will be dropping makes a lot of people slow
down, so it might work to keep them from speeding up.

CM Larson believes that the flashing speed sign is helping
slow some of the traffic down.

Public Input: There
was no public input at this time.

With no further business at this time, Sargent moved for adjournment
of the meeting at 6:55 pm seconded by Burres.
