Mayor Sandy Olin brought the City Council meeting to order at 7 p.m. Monday in the Betty Hagel Memorial Civic Center. After quickly settling the opening mower bid the council moved on to key issues including trash, a street dance and a liquor license.
The Center City Council had many topics on the table when they met July 9.
One of the hottest topics discussed at the July 6 County Commission meeting were two pending temporary liquor licenses. The commission expressed some concern as to allow the catering of these services from businesses located outside the county. Their chief concern was extensive catering might harm some of the small business in the community. Commissioners also expressed understanding however, that individuals had a right to choose whom they give their business. The conversation then turned to compromises.
The odds weren’t in favor of Jimmy’s Pizza/Longshots on the first day of the McQuades Softball Tournament. A bird pooped on one player and another player broke her nose during the team’s first game. JPL battled through poop and injuries to capture the McQuades Rec three division title.
Following an announcement recently that District 33 Sen. Randel Christmann, Hazen, could be appointed to the North Dakota Public Service Commission due to a change in the North Dakota Constitution, Christmann announced he would rather seek election to the vacant seat in November.
