Monett City Council plans busy meeting

Monday, March 19, 2012

Three points of discussion and financial action is scheduled for the regular March monthly meeting of the Monett City Council, slated for 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

Council members will review a proposed agreement between the city and the Monett R-1 School District for sharing costs of having a school resource officer. The position has been vacant since the last officer left the department in 2011.

The council will discuss amending the city code over chickens in the city limits and the rental space offered to the Barry County Emergency Management Office at the city's Justice Center.

In financial action, council members will amend the budget for fiscal year 2011-12, ending on March 31, to reflect actual expenses. They will approve rental rates for the city-owned parking lot on Fifth Street, review bids for a new fire truck and approve a lease between the city and the Monett Historical Society for continued use of the city building at 705 E. Broadway.

In other business, the council will give final passage to ordinances on giving false declarations and failing to appear in court, extending water and sewer service outside the city limits, a new retirement option for city employees and the budget for fiscal year 2012-13.

Council members are expected to authorize participation in Missouri's Highway Safety Program. Mayor Jim Orr will likely ask city department heads to report on the latest activities by city employees. A closed session is expected to be held over real estate and employee medical records.

The meeting will be held in council chambers at Monett City Hall and is open to the public.
