council is to reach out before trimming.

Attorney Joe Corrow discussed the Purchase Agreement for the
Fire Truck and the concerns that the buyer has. 
It will be discussed again at the next meeting.

CM Burres had heard that the $3.1 million will build a
smaller pool than what is currently there. 
The explanation was that the council approved a concept for a bigger
pool but was not comfortable with a bond for that amount.  The committee is working with the designer to
make sure that the pool is the same size and that the difference in cost is
covered through grants, donations, and are expecting lower bid prices than the
estimates.

Mayor/Council
Comments:
CM Schmitz shared that the Pool Fundraiser 5K will be on April 27th.  They are also planning a pool party/carnival
for the end of June.

Public Input: Linda
Murken from the County Board of Supervisors introduced herself and shared that
the grants for community programs will be happening again this year.  The county will work with the communities on
the FEMA Flood Maps.  They formally held
quadrant community meetings, but will try to get around to towns’ council meetings.

With no further business at this time, Sargent moved for adjournment
of the meeting at 6:21 pm seconded by Burres. 
All were in favor, motion carried. 
The next regular scheduled meeting will be Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at
