City Attorney Sean Surrisi will present a resolution to modify the job title and description of the records clerk/typists to that of the multi-task employee. A second resolution will be to write off delinquent and uncollectable water, waste-water, garbage and storm-water bills. The final item the city attorney will present is the acceptance of Marshall County’s dedication agreement for the jail lift station into the city’s infrastructure.
Under other business Board of Works members will see a presentation by The Troyer Group for River Park Square.
