Resolutions adopting the Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan and the Capital Improvement Plan 2024-2028 will be held later in the meeting along with resolutions approving the vacating of a trail easement, and the application for Community Block Grant funds.

The City Council will also be asked to approve the contract for replacing the City Hall Porch, and set public hearings on vacating a utility easement and on the Transfer Station Tipping Floor Resurfacing Project.
