Pay Equity report and implementation form approval. We have been found to be out of compliance. Rhonda passed this on to council—nothing heard from City Attorney yet.

Waste Management is wondering about changing pick-up from Tuesday to Monday. They are also discussing giving out recycling bins to residents at no extra charge. Council said this was their decision.

Minutes—keep putting them in the paper or not. They are currently being hung in the Community Center and posted on our website. If residents are interested they can let Rhonda know to send them also. It was agreed to keep putting them in the paper.

Schedule of meetings to be changed for the Planning Commission—5:30 p.m. is too early; change to 2nd Tuesday of the month so we don’t interfere with Council meetings. Start mentioned this was OK.
