6. DEPARTMENT HEAD REPORTS

Sergeant Stigall gave a brief report on the Come Play on Labor Day festivities. He advised that all went well and thanked the Raymond Police Department and the Pacific County Sheriff’s Department for their help during the parade on Sunday. It was very much appreciated.

7. MAYOR’S REPORT

Mayor Struck reported that she also felt like Come Play on Labor Day was successful. After all of the bills were paid they are in the black so she considered that an achievement. She thanked the South Bend Police Department as well as the city crew for all of their work. There is a great deal of work that is done behind the scenes that people don’t see and it is also much appreciated.

8. COUNCIL COMMENTS
  • Councilor Kuiken thought it was a fun weekend. The fireworks were a great display and he participated in the fire patrol at the fireworks location and everything went very smoothly even as dry as it was.
  • Councilor Hall was curious about the mosquito spraying before Labor Day. Mayor Struck explained that Three Rivers Mosquito & Vector Control started spraying prior to the weekend, but Ed Horvath’s four-wheeler broke down and there was no place locally to get parts so he wasn’t able to finish. He was about 50% done when he broke down. He was back and sprayed on September 10th and 11th.
  • Councilor Hall advised that he would not be at the next (September 25th) council meeting.
9. ADJOURNMENT

The meeting was adjourned at 5:39 PM to meet again at 5:30 PM on Monday, September 25, 2017 for the next regularly scheduled meeting at South Bend City Hall.
