Puppet show February 19th at 6:00 P.M. Friends contributed funds towards the new stained glass windows. “Hoopla” is now offered for downloading books, audio, movies, magazines and videos.

Mayor Report Sherrets is working on finding replacements for the openings on the Boards and Commissions.

City Attorney Report City Attorney Lein stated he is working on several open cases on abatement nuisances that are uninhabitable structures. Oelwein has looked into cameras to monitor traffic. He believes from his years of experience prosecuting state crimes that it would be helpful for Oelwein to have this in higher traffic neighborhoods and higher speed areas. The infamous hill has taken a couple lives and now on 150. Our officers do patrol that and he has prosecuted a fair amount of tickets on that but they can’t be there all the time. It is a constant issue and look at it from a safety perspective. He spoke to a Sergeant in Cedar Rapids and quoted “from the time we didn’t have cameras on the S curves on 380, we had x amount of fatalities. Since the cameras we have 0 fatalities.” That is the biggest quote that stood out to me regarding Cedar Rapids cameras.

He processed a vehicular homicide here in town caused by a vehicle going 65 in a 35 mph. My thought on this from a State Prosecutor’s side that one death is too many. If cameras could help alleviate some of that it would be something the council would want to reconsider.

Adjourn A motion was made by Milks, seconded by Weber to adjourn at 6:43 P.M. All voted aye.
Motion Carried
