Council Report May 19th, 2021

It was a light agenda for last night's Council Meeting. The financial report through March was very encouraging as it is projected to have a significant surplus in the General Fund and The Community Center Fund. The major Regular Agenda item was Discussion and Possible Action on the Parks and Recreation Needs Assessment. This was the result of literally hundreds of hours of resident input including a statistically valid survey. However, Vice Mayor Melanie Barrett asked what the Council was specifically being asked to approve and then Mayor Joe Winfield voiced his concern that he felt there was not enough public input on Trails and Multi-Use Paths as well as the Community Center so he did not approve of the motion. Council-member Jones-Ivey stated that she understood that they were not being asked to approve the actual projects or the expenditure, but rather a summary of the resident input and consultant and staff work, over many months to serve as guide posts for future actual decisions on these issues. However, the Council decided not to vote on the motion. They did not ask for more information, but rather just thanked all involved and adjourned the meeting.
