Audubon City Council meeting preview for Jan. 9th


January 8th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Audubon City Council will meet Monday evening at the City Hall in Audubon, for a regularly scheduled session. During the meeting, which begins at 7-p.m., the Council will hear from Gail Richardson, with regard to the Library budget. There will also be discussion pertaining to parking in yards.  During their last session in December, Councilman John Wetzel voiced his concerns about cars being parked in yards throughout the city. Wetzel presented several pictures of vehicles being parked in front and back yards at several residents. He asked the council to consider passing some sort of ordinance keeping the vehicles on the streets.

The Council Monday evening, will also hold discussion with regard to Compensation practices. During their last session the Audubon City Council voted 3-2 to give all city employees a three-percent raise. Last year, each City employee received a $400 raise. The two council members who voted against the raise had wanted to wait until they found out what the city’s health insurance costs were going to be. The raise will go into effect July 1, 2012.
