“You say Coyne, I say Cady Hayes”

After being fashionably late by a mere two minutes, Mayor John Brose called the September 17, 2001 meeting of the Lanesboro City Council to order at approximately 5:18 pm.

All council members as well as City Attorney Tom Manion, City Administrator Barb Hoyhtya, and City Clerk Rita Peterson were present and patiently waiting, little realizing that all would soon participate in some comic relief to what everyone must surely agree has otherwise been a quite dismal week.

As always, Additions to the Agenda opened the meeting during which City Administrator Hoyhtya passed out hand-outs on ‘the Bank’ and on ‘Annexation.’ Councilman John Dollar also requested that a discussion and possible clarification of the City’s "Two Mile Radius for Subdivision Annexation Rule" be added to the evening’s agenda.

This of course sparked a fair amount of discussion, with Councilwoman Peggy Hanson suggesting permanently moving outfitter trailer parking to the Bass Pond lot as a possible solution. Councilman Cropp responded that "citizen concerns regarding both tourist and business use of the Bass Pond parking lot" initiated the Ball Field parking compromise in the first place and that this was still a viable option.

Cropp also noted that "according to state statute trailers with valid license plates can legally park on the street just like any other veh .....
