The Council:

  • appointed 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.
  • approved a contract with Dick's Sanitation. The contract was approved 3-2-1 with Mayor Mary Rossing and Councilors Betsey 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.
  • heard a recommendation from the Fire Vehicle Committee for a new firetruck.
