An update by Mayor Ray Briscoe and departmental reports were heard when the Holden City Council gathered for its December meeting.
After approving November minutes with a minor amendment and having no community citizens or organizations scheduled, Mayor Briscoe addressed the Council.
He pointed out the City is halfway through this fiscal year and there are some tough issues ahead of us. However, he said the Council should look at some key issues and activities it has accomplished in the first half of the year. He cited the street department’s progress in maintenance and paving, that codes enforcement efforts have made some “visible” and some “unseen” progress and that a strategy to address the “hard cases” is in place.
He the noted the new Council committee structure seems to be in good success, considering it is “early days” but that there are still have some things to learn. He expressed pleasure with the interactions between Council, boards, and commissions, adding the City staffing has greatly improved and offered a “job well done” comment regarding the its experience, attitude, and training.
