Mayor’s Report:


Mayor Finley addressed two letters he had received from the Dickinson Foundation. Finley told the council that he had spoken to Gary Peterlin the Dickinson House’s roof that is in need of repair. Finley is seeking funds from the Foundation for the repairs. Finley noted that the original resolution establishing the Dickinson House Foundation — which was drafted by Peterlin when he was attorney for the city – made the city responsible for most of the upkeep of the Dickinson House. A resolution passed two years later, made the city responsible only for the day-to-day operations of the DH, such as utilities, cleaning, and general upkeep. The Dickinson Foundation has been slow in accepting some responsibility for the cost of the repairs, and the city cannot afford to make the repairs alone. The second letter asked that the city include tickets in the monthly utility statement mailing. The Mayor explained that the city had stopped doing this more than five years ago for all groups, because the city sends its own newsletter and other informational mailings in the statements. The city does offer those non-profit organizations the ability to use the city’s bulk mailing permit which results in lower postage costs.

The Mayor also announced that City Clerk Becky Clinard is stepping down as of September 30th. The mayor has prepared an ad for the local newspaper, and will look at placing the ad in other municipal job listing sites.

A MOTION WAS MADE BY RIVARA, SECONDED BY PORTER at 7:14 p.m. to enter into executive session to discuss “the appointment, employment, compensation, discipline, performance, or dismissal of specific employess of the public body …” and “collective negotiating matters between the public body and its employees or their representatives.” AYES: CAREY, PORTER, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.
