            On motion of Councilman Winston, seconded by Councilman Dee Richard, the Council voted to adopt a resolution approving Change Order No. 1 for the Sewer Pump Upgrade Project.  Upon roll call the vote was as follows:

            A public hearing was then held on an ordinance requested by the Mayor to amend and re-enact Section 14-10 of the City Code of Ordinances so as to include rules and regulations for City Recreational Facilities.

 

            Due to the uniqueness of the activities at the new reservoir facility, it is apparent that there is a need to establish certain rules for that facility and for all of the City’s recreational facilities.  Rules being proposed include rules concerning fishing, swimming, pets and the use of certain vehicles.

 

            Councilman Mire stated that he had concerns about not allowing fishing at the reservoir facility.  The Mayor stated that he felt that it would be a liability issue with people and children being closer to the water, and also the casting of hooks with the walking trail in close proximity to the water.  The Mayor also stated that if the Council approves an amendment allowing the Mayor to dispense the provisions of this ordinance by the issuance of a permit for special events, the city could possibility sponsor fishing rodeos or other activities that would allow fishing on certain days, but not on a daily basis.

 

            Councilman Winston asked if the fishing prohibition would apply to the new pedestrian bridge.  The Mayor stated that this would only apply at recreational facilities, and the pedestrian bridge is not considered that type of facility.

 

            On motion of Councilman Dee Richard, seconded by Councilman gene Richard, the Council voted to amend the ordinance to include item 7 Walking animals in posted areas, and also to include the ability of the Mayor to dispense of these provisions by the issuance of a permit for special events at the recreational facilities.  Upon roll call the vote was as follows:
