Sister City Committee: July 1, 2008 -6:00 PMThe July 3rd Storm Water Advisory Committee will be our last meeting un televised. Seems with our new storm water ordinances the need for the way the meetings are carried out to be changed. That means my ugly mug will be up on the stand.
Beautification Committee: July 1, 2008 - 6:30 PM
Planning Commission: July 1, 2008 - 7:00 PM
