- swore in Jessica Peterson White as the Fourth Ward representative. The appointment was necessary after Patrick Ganey resigned from the council. An election will be held in November 2013 to fill the seat for the remainder of the term, which expires at the end of 2014.
- revoted and approved a contract 6-0 with Dick's Sanitation. Councilor Betsey Buckheit was absent. The revote was needed after a majority (four votes) didn't vote in support of or against the motion at the Council's Oct. 24 meeting. At its last meeting, the council voted 3-2-1 with Mayor Mary Rossing and Councilors Buckheit and Erica Zweifel voting yes, Councilors Ivan Imm and Rhonda Pownell voting no and Councilor Suzie Nakasian abstaining, citing lack of details about the proposals. Waste Management is the current provider for the city and their services will expire Dec. 31.
- approved the canvass of votes cast at the Nov. 6, 2012, city general election, which re-elected Zweifel and voted in David Ludescher (At-Large), David DeLong (Second Ward) and Dana Graham (mayor).
