Event Permit – Centennial Celebration for the OK Theatre

Lacey reviewed the changes submitted by Gina Birkmaier, stating that she believes the concerns brought forth at the June City Council meeting, have been remedied. Lacey stated that she is asking for approval contingent upon her receiving the certificates of insurance and clarification on the liquor license application. She stated that as far as the street closures are concerned, Umpqua Bank drive-thru will be open through business hours on Friday and Darrel Brann has guaranteed access for anyone who asks to go in to do other business on Main Street without requiring a ticket. Councilor Agnew moved that we authorize the event contingent upon Darrell Brann accepting the changes as submitted by Gina Birkmaier and that all business owners are contacted and certificates of insurance are received. Councilor Pritchard seconded the motion. No further questions or comments. Motion passed unanimously.

Bowlby Bash-Straw Bales:

Councilor Agnew explained that the person/people responsible for the derby race at Bowlby Bash had two options for getting straw bales and now both options are no longer available. He explained that he has concern for safety and would like to know if anyone has any recommendations or thoughts. Lacey stated that she would talk with Gina and see if together we could find some bales for the derby. 

Lathrop/City Property:

Ronnie stated that he has been approached by Cody Lathrop who owns a house on Second Street on the south side of the City Park. He would like to extend a fence out onto part of the city property, in order to better contain his children and pets.  Mayor Karvoski stated that she has concern only because another resident already asked permission to use part of that property and was denied. Lacey stated that it might be best to submit a Variance Application to the Planning Commission and let them decide is this is something that would be willing to approve. Council recommended to Lacey that she make contact with City Attorney Wyatt Baum regarding issues that might arise from allowing use of City property. Lacey stated that she would make contact with Wyatt Baum as soon as possible in order to get Mr. Lathrop an answer. 

No further business. Meeting adjourned.
