Wykoff citizens voice concerns


Mon, May 16th, 2016
Posted in Wykoff Government

The Wykoff City Council met on May 11 in regular session. Members in attendance were Mitch Grabau, Rocky Vreeman, Mayor Al Williams, Megan Lund, and Brody Mensink. City Clerk Cheryl Davis was absent. Regarding Davis, Mayor Williams said, “She’s tentatively to be back Monday.” There was discussion of some duties that haven’t been completed during her absence, but it was pointed out that if she is back on the 16th, she should be able to get all deadlines met.

Mayor Williams proposed that this meeting have an abbreviated agenda, and that the council consider scheduling a special closed meeting on May 18 at 7 p.m. to discuss a matter of “client attorney privilege”. He also suggested having a brief public meeting at 8 p.m. that evening to consider the usual consent agenda items (prior meeting minutes, payment of bills, and Treasurer’s Report) that were not being dealt with at tonight’s meeting. The council OK’d this plan.

Four citizens had signed up to address the council. First, the council heard from Lyman Hare, who gave the council a letter, and he read from it. He complained that a vacant house, which had stood east of the CSC building, had been being burned “a little at a time, in some small container”. He said he called the Sheriff’s Office, and the burning stopped. His letter states, “My question is why does the Council & Planning and Zoning sit on their back side and let these things happen in our community. It always has to be a citizen to make a complaint. Mitch, you had asked the council to be PAID for being on Planning and Zoning, …and it was granted. But that was a HUGE mistake in granting that pay, because I don’t think you or Rocky are doing your job. I think the council should go back to running the city and do away with Planning and Zoning and save money from their pay to help with the budget.”

Mary Sackett then addressed the council, asking about installing a sign post to give directions to the Historical Society. Mark and Mayor Williams each said they would be willing to help install that. She then added that something needs to be done about the fan at the community center, and Mark said he’s called the company and left a message regarding this. She then brought up her concern that due to a restraining order situation, perhaps the city should consider installing better security measures, such as a bullet-proof window at the clerk’s office, so that city employees co .....
