1. GARY SONNTAG - Wage Adjustment
The Council discussed the increased job responsibilities for Gary Sonntag, who will become Public Works Director/City Engineer effective November 1, 1997. MOTION. Councilmember Denison moved that a wage adjustment of $166/month be given to Mr. Sonntag effective November 1, 1997, and that this adjustment include the 6 month probationary increase. Motion seconded by Councilmember Piccolo and carried.
2. WORK SESSION
Vern Jones discussed a large lot that the City owns which is located on 2nd South. The bids that have been received for the property are a lot lower than the appraised value. The lot is 116' wide. As most of the other lots in the area are approximately 50' wide, he requested permission to submit a request to the Board of Adjustment for a variance to split this lot into two smaller lots. They would both be just under the 60' requirement. A value could then be placed on the two lots instead of one huge lot nobody wants to develop. The Council agreed to the request.
MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that the meeting adjourn and that an Executive Session convene. Motion seconded by Councilmember Denison and carried.
Meeting adjourned at 5:28 p.m.
3. EXECUTIVE SESSION - Discussion On Employee Benefits, Pending Litigation
MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that the Executive Session adjourn and that the Council Meeting reconvene. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
Council Meeting reconvened at 8:00 p.m.
Meeting adjourned at 8:00 p.m.
