Public comment open at city council meeting

Friday, November 18, 2011

The Monett City Council faces a diverse agenda as council members hold their regular monthly meeting on Monday.

Public discussion will be held on proposed changes to city ordinances. Comments will be taken on limiting storage of an inoperable vehicle to 60 days on private property. Restrictions reclassifying fundraising boot blocks as interfering with traffic flow and thus ending the practice will be discussed.

Comments will be taken on a proposal that will empower city officials to pursue repayment for pawnbrokers receiving stolen merchandise, a matter presently handled by the state that has typically not pursued restitution in small-dollar cases.

Action is expected on a resolution expanding mutual aid. The proposal will authorize a response addressing natural hazards.

In financial matters, council members will amend the fiscal year budget after seven months. A study will be considered to change retirement benefits for city employees under the LAGERS program.

Bills will be paid, and department heads will review the latest work by city crews.

The meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. and is open to the public. A closed session for legal matters will follow.
