The Mayor asked for comments from the public.  Resident Jason Curran asked what is the difference between the Sexual Harassment Ordinance we are placing on file and the one we currently have. Attorney Jim Andreoni said that the verbiage was a little different and to avoid and potential conflict we want to adopt the IML suggested ordinance.

Commissioner and Mayor’s Reports:

Commissioner Rivara informed the board that the IMEA has a program for businesses that can be disconnected during peak times and receive a discount for doing so. He also said that we agreed to a 10 year pole agreement with AT&T. Finally, he said that since we lost the arbitration to IBEW 6 people are eligible for early retirement. Therefore the City is responsible for paying over $1.6 million. He asked Jim Andreoni if the Mayor has the sole responsibility to negotiate the contract. His concerns are because the Mayor wants to outsource the water/wastewater department to TEST and take the Supervisors out of the Union. Jim Andreoni said that nothing in the municipal code specifically says a certain person is on the committee. It’s up to the council to decide if a motion to expand will happen.

Commissioner Carey wished everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. He congratulated Stacie and Becky on a good job with the Whobilation Saturday and said that it brought a lot of people into town.
