The Mound City Council met in regular session on Tuesday, July 5, due to the Independence Day holiday on Monday.

The council approved the minutes of the last regular meeting on June 6 and the minutes of the special meeting on June 13 each on a 4-0 vote.

The council then approved warrant checking in the amount of $62,373.18.

City Clerk Shelby Murray reported on the preliminary budget, going over transfers and such. Mayor Wade Doering asked if it is projected to be revenue neutral and Murray responded it is.

Police Chief Paul McKee stated the holiday weekend went well with few incidents or calls.

City Superintendent John Bruns reported that he and Zach White are averaging eight to 10 meters per day and are well over half done with the switch over.

He also noted that at some point someone in a golf cart drove up on the splash pad, leaving mud all over it. He added that fencing should be up before the event on Saturday, July 9.

Jacob Bush, Codes Enforcement Officer, reported on several properties, noting that one is moving along; one should be fined if not completed by deadline; and one is going to the attorney.

The council then set the agenda for the meeting with the addition of parks.

They then briefly discussed the Splash Park Grand Opening set for July 9, and agreed not to have a beer garden.

Mayor Dering read a letter from the Linn County Health Department asking the city to partner with them on purchasing school supplies for the kids. Following a brief discussion the city opted not to partner with the Health Department but to perhaps make a donation to their local schools.

Codes Enforcement Officer Jacob Bush noted a need for a warning book so that an official record is there of what he does. Bush was directed to get a quote on printing.

Bruns noted he will need to replace a truck soon as it has been fixed several times recently. Consultant Josh Baldwin noted they need to set the public works vehicles up on a rotation similar to that of the police department. Council agreed to table that discussion.

The council then held an executive session for 10 minutes on personnel matters with no action taken afterwards.
