MENDOTA – The Mendota City Council handled several items of business during a short meeting on July 1.
Mayor David Boelk recommended the appointment of Jim Strouss to the position of code enforcement officer, which was approved by the council.
During Aldermanic reports, John Pierson said he has been approached by several people about the possible installation of stop signs at various locations. Pierson said the procedure used to be that the police department would conduct a traffic study in the locations for the possible placement of stop signs and then it would make a recommendation to the council. He would like for that system to be used again. No action was taken.
Two ordinances were approved during John Holland’s report – the prevailing wage ordinance and the annual appropriations ordinance.
Bill Hunt thanked the Chamber of Commerce and everyone else involved in putting on a fantastic Fourth of July fireworks show on June 29 at Lake Mendota.
The next regular meeting of the Mendota City Council will be Monday, July 15 at 6:30 p.m.
