Seconded by Council Member Kamlitz. Consent Roll Call No. 1 showed: 5 ayes, 0 nays, 0 absent. Carried.
Council Member Steele moved a Resolution to approve up to $500,000 Municipal Infrastructure Funds (Prairie Dog Funds) to finance the Stormwater Project 21-71 (UJ Stormwater). Council Member Buchanan expressed concerns that the council is acting in haste without the creation of a special assessment district, engineer’s report, and using 25% of the Prairie Dog funds. Council Member Buchanan stated that a non-taxpaying, private university should not receive the funds before we even consider other needs we have in the city. Mayor Heinrich explained that this stormwater project is a City project, not a UJ project. This stormwater line would have to be abandoned and moved eventually as it affects a large area of the stormwater system. Council Member Steele stated that this stormwater issue is creating a problem for the city and would have had to be fixed anyway. Seconded by Council Member Kamlitz. Roll Call No. 2 showed: 4 ayes, 1 nay (Buchanan), 0 absent. Carried.
Council Member Kamlitz moved to adjourn at 5:03 PM. Seconded by Council Member Steele. Unanimous aye vote. Carried.
DWAINE HEINRICH, Mayor
