During the “Administration Reports” portion of the June 25 City Council meeting, Business Administrator George Savastano reminded Council and the audience that the Administration had scheduled a Town Hall Meeting on June 29 to discuss the future of the public school property at 4501 Park Road. Afterwards, Councilman Gibson announced that City Council’s Reorganization Meeting was scheduled at 12 noon on July 1 at Excursion Park.  Next, Councilman Edwardi asked for an update on the Townsends Inlet Bride Repair Project, at which time Mr. Savastano stated that the bridge was still on-track to be open to traffic in the end of July.

Each of the eight resolutions on June 25 Consent Agenda was adopted, including…

•    Resolution 105, which authorized a Change Order and Closure of Project with Neri Construction for the demolition of the old annexes at the former public school property on Park Road.
