At the June 21, 2011 meeting, the Assembly passed a stream <br /> ordinance that added more streams to the Anadromous Stream Habitat Protection. On July 5, 2011, <br /> the Assembly passed a resolution in memoriam for Bill Noll and it was sent to his family. They also <br /> passed an ordinance for the October ballot for a .1% sales tax increase to go to economic <br /> development. McClure, along with the representatives from Homer and the South Peninsula, were <br /> adamant about the mayor explaining the issues with the tsunami warning system. The push was to <br /> try and get the state involved at this point so the alarms did not go off incorrectly. The Assembly re- <br /> appointed Cindy Ecklund to the Borough Planning Commission. There would be a public hearing at <br /> the August meeting to put the abolishment of the Lowell Point Service Area on the ballot. Also on <br /> that meeting agenda was an item to come up with specific wording on ballot for reapportionment due <br /> to the 2010 census, addressing if the Assembly should move from a nine member Assembly to an <br /> eleven member Assembly. If the Assembly did not provide this wording, the reapportionment would <br /> just make this change to an eleven person Assembly. There was still a City of Seward seat available <br /> on the Seward Bear Creek Service Area Flood Board. <br /> City Manager's Report, City Manager Phillip Oates stated they were approved in the <br /> governor's capital budget, and the city did very well. He listed the funding Seward received. Oates <br /> gave a lengthy list of accomplishments Seward had achieved since Oates had come to Seward as the <br /> City Manager. There had been no purchases approved between $10,000- 50,000 since the last <br /> Council Meeting. <br />
