The Lake Shore City Council took care of business in fast fashion during a six-minute regular meeting Monday, Nov. 22.

Council member John Terwilliger was absent.

The council learned design work continues on Trail 77. A meeting was scheduled with the Indian Affairs Council and the Office of State Archeologist regarding the trail.

The council deferred assessment without interest for Robinhood Way improvements for a resident who is a disabled veteran.

In public safety news, Lake Shore Police Chief Steve Sundstrom said October was a bit busier than average with 52 traffic related incidents and 39 miscellaneous calls.


Traffic incidents included 29 traffic warnings, 13 traffic citations and three DWI arrests.

Miscellaneous calls included three suspicious activity calls, one disorderly conduct call, two disturbance complaints and one property damage complaint.

Lake Shore police assisted other agencies twice.

The council has invited the public to gather at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 20, for a holiday social before its regular meeting at 7 p.m. that will include a truth in taxation hearing for the public to talk about the proposed 2022 budget and general revenue tax levy before council adoption of both.
