Mayor/Council
Comments:
CM Schmitz asked about
the Roland Rocket sign at Britson Park. 
The sign was put up by a private citizen and it is unclear who is
responsible for maintaining it.

Public Input: Kevin
Krausman from 705 Bryan asked if the property at 731 Bryan was going to be
discussed.  The Planning and Zoning
meeting was cancelled so the property was not discussed at the council
meeting.  They also had concerns about
not receiving the letters about the potential rezoning.  It is believed they were sent to every
property required and will be looked into.

With no further business at this time, Burres moved for adjournment
of the meeting at 6:44 pm seconded by Schmitz. 
All were in favor, motion carried. 
The next regular scheduled meeting will be Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at
6:00 pm at the Roland Community Center.
