The council decided to approach the amending chapter 95.03 relating to the sale of food in the parks at later date.

The council approved a request to rescind the previous contract award of Nov. 4, 2013 to WHF, Inc.

The council approved a request from the Sanitation Department to declare two 2009 Mack garbage trucks as surplus and approved for the trucks to be put on govdeals.com. The council also approved a list of miscellaneous equipment from the Utility Office as surplus.
