No budget comments drawn during Riverside public hearing
RIVERSIDE — The Riverside City Council approved the city’s budget for the fiscal year 2014 during its regular meeting Monday. There was a public hearing at 7 p.m. but there were no citizens who wanted to comment on this.
In other business the council:
• Discussed the Mast Lease for a city sign to be put on their property. Kasdorf motioned for “the fuzzy parts of the lease to be cleared up.” One of the arguments made by some councilors was that there wasn’t an early out clause for the city if they wanted to not use the full 20-year lease. Schneider motioned to have the early out clause put into the lease but that motion failed with Kasdorf, Kevin Kiene, and Kirkwood voting no. The motion for “the fuzzy parts of the lease to be cleared up” was approved by the councilors.
• Discussed the possibility of annexing Boise Court into the city
• Awarded the contract of the flooring for the Riverboat Room.
• Approved residential grant requests from Eric Smith, Don Latta, Scott Vanschoyck, Nate Robinson, and Richard Duder for the amount of $15,587.
• Approved the motion to get pre-wiring bids for city hall for Proximity Cards/Cameras
The next city council meeting will be held at city hall on March 18 at 6:30 p.m.
