First on the agenda Tyler Flavin asked the council if they would consider putting a cross walk on the south east side of the grade school where the kindergarten doors are. The cross walk would be between Grant and Baltimore. He said safety is a concern in that area and he would like to bring attention to the drivers.  Cordes will look at the area where Flavin is requesting and talk to the State about any requirements they might have to be ADA compliant.

 Mayor asked Nanc Burns if she has completed the requirements the council requested on her property at 401 W Carthage.  Burns said she completed everything that was in the last letter. Cordes said she has completed all the work.

 Steve Norsworthy asked the council if he could have a 6 month extension to move his storage trailer. The council agreed to a 6 month extension.
