Lake Shore: Council may change monthly meeting time
Ordinance change required to change meeting time to 6 p.m.
Lake Shore City Council meetings likely will be held at an earlier time starting sometime in 2022.
The council agreed Monday, Dec. 20, to consider changing its meeting time to 6 p.m., still on the fourth Monday of the month.
Traditionally the council has met at 7 p.m.
This change requires an ordinance change, which the council will consider in January.
Police had 72 calls for service in November, including 30 traffic-related incidents and 42 miscellaneous calls.
Traffic incidents included 24 warnings and two citations. Miscellaneous activity included five suspicious activity reports and one property damage complaint. Lake Shore police assisted other agencies twice.
In other business Monday, the council:
Approved a proposal for engineering services from Widseth engineering firm.
Learned the city has issued 93 permits through November for a total valuation of $12,643,590. That’s nearly double the valuation at this time in 2020.
Learned Clasen & Schiessl certified public accountants will conduct the city’s financial audit Monday, Jan. 10, 2022.
Agreed to conduct an archaeology survey for an alternate Trail 77 route after multiple agencies raised objections about a first route within the right of way of County State Aid Highway 77. A survey of that first route reaffirmed a known archeological site near the city limits.
Council member Henry Cote was absent Monday.
