COMMENTS:

The Mayor commented that we have received information dealing with the historic recordation of the old water tower. They were quotes from a company to do the pictures and 2 from companies to write the study. This is currently required by the State. The quotes were both close to $20,000 which the city would have to pay for. As of now nothing has to be done and we are in hopes that the State will decide it is something we don’t have to do. More information will come later.

Alderman Propst commented on the wreaths that were refurbished by Melinda Lovell saying they looked really nice on the light poles.

With no other comments:

**Motion by C Davidson 2nd by C Perry to adjourn the meeting @ 7:25PM. All council members present voted for the motion. (5)
