The Mayor then opened the floor for comments.

Greg Stein asked about the Oglesby Ambulance Association. Commissioner Porter explained the roles of both the Ambulance Association and the Firefighters Association to Stein.

Tony Dennett asked about the work going on near Fisher Auto Body. He was told that the city is putting a new water line in before the resurfacing work later this summer.

Mayor and Commissioners’ Reports:

Commissioner Rivara said that a scheduled outage at Wire Mesh to replace a transformer will correct the flickering light problem. This has been an ongoing problem for quite some time.

Commissioner Yborra updated the council on the water main project and the Walnut Street resurfacing project set to bid on April 24th. “Things will be a lot better,” said Yborra once these projects are completed.

Commissioner Danekas thanked the residents for the opportunity to serve on the council for eight years. Danekas did not seek re-election. Danekas took the time “to set the record straight” on claims made by those campaigning for mayor. Danekas pointed to one of the candidate’s tax bills, noting that the taxes paid by the candidate had actually gone down the last four years. Danekas blamed declining home values as the reason the city needed to increase its rate, and that the city raised rates just to make up for the declining values. Danekas said he felt that costs “were pretty well contained” and that the only way to cut costs further was to cut services to residents, lay off workers and outsource “a couple of departments.” Danekas said that anyone who promised to cut taxes and utility rates, “can’t do it.”

A MOTION WAS MADE BY DANEKAS, SECONDED BY PORTER to adjourn at 7:24 p.m. AYES: DANEKAS, PORTER, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.
