The change shifts the responsibility of approving tree removals from the city council to city staff. An applicant may appeal the decision to the city council.

The city council took no action resulting from executive session discussions.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. Council Member Louis Decker was absent. Agenda

During the meeting, the city council held a second public hearing regarding the city’s proposed tax rate.
