Adam Dorrall, Benton Associates, informed the council of recommendations regarding renewing the citys sewer permit, which is due in April 2012. Requirements for testing will be changed and he felt the city should start doing some of them now.

The city will be advertising for bids regarding road tubes this summer. Other street improvements including ditches were discussed.

Gene Bruner and Peggy Middleton are taking donations for a historical monument for the Prime grave in the Downing Cemetery. The city is replacing the board fence with vinyl fencing and plans to do other things to improve the cemetery.
