Arlyn Pottebaum present.  Topics of discussion included the dead tree at his property on Old Hwy 60; his concern about the new “NO TRUCKS” sign put up on Cedar St.; and the letter the City sent him regarding the parking of trailers along Old Hwy 60 blocking the view of drivers entering the highway.

The putting up of STOP signs by 4th Avenue and Main before school starts was discussed, once again.  The City Council has decided to, in fact, move forward with this.  STOP signs will be ordered as well as red solar flashing lights to put above the two new stop signs.  That intersection will now be a 4-way stop intersection.

Discussion was held regarding the property of 103 2nd Avenue S.  Mayor Rouse and Darren Hulst will go to the property owner and discuss the cleaning up of same.

Review of the South Side Park Fund check register.

Motion made by Schulz, seconded by Hulst to adjourn at 8:40 p.m.  Motion carried all ayes.
