City of Seward,Alaska City Council Minutes <br /> July 27, 2015 Volume 39, Page 576 <br /> advisory council had 18 staff members in Anchorage and Valdez. The fiscal year began in July and <br /> their budget was over$4 million. <br /> Jim Fredrickson thanked the council for their service. He had comments on the <br /> beautification notices he had received on an alleged violation of overgrown vegetation. Fredrickson <br /> showed council a picture of the property of weeds in a three feet long ditch dug by the city to <br /> improve drainage without any notice given to him. He used to mow all along this area but couldn't <br /> anymore due to the ditch. Fredrickson asked whose responsibility was it to maintain this area and <br /> felt the city was in violation of a nuisance in having such as a deep ditch off the street. He was still <br /> waiting for the city to finish their ditch project. Fredrickson received one letter from Bruce Stanford. <br /> He felt it important to talk to the council and explain that this problem was created by the city. He'd <br /> learned these notices had been sent all over town. The money in postage alone was excessive, he <br /> felt. <br /> Tim McDonald had a complaint with the maintenance infrastructure of the city. There were <br /> many streets filled with potholes and in poor shape. He didn't think the city was keeping up on this. <br /> McDonald found it coincidental they had an election coming up and there was a flurry of leases in <br /> the city at very lengthy terms and favorable rates. These leases were entitled,he felt. It was a lot of <br /> money that the city was losing with these leases and stated the public deserved an explanation. <br /> APPROVAL OF AGENDA AND CONSENT AGENDA <br /> Motion(Keil/Terry) Approval of Agenda and Consent Agenda <br /> Resolution 2015-062 was pulled from the consent agenda by Squires. <br /> Resolution 2015-063 was added to the consent agenda by Keil with no objection from council. <br /> Motion Passed Unanimous <br /> The clerk read the following approved consent agenda items: <br /> Resolution 2015-063, Authorizing The City Manager To Sign An Extension Of A Special <br /> Services Contract Between The City Of Seward And The Department Of Public Safety <br /> Providing Dispatch And Clerical Services To Public Safety Employees In The Seward Area <br /> For Thirty-Six Thousand Dollars ($36,000.00). <br /> Appoint Darryl Schaefermeyer,Bruce Jaffa,and Brooke Andrews to the Port and Commerce <br /> Advisory Board with terms expiring July,2018. <br /> SPECIAL ORDERS,PRESENTATIONS AND REPORTS <br /> Proclamations & Awards <br /> Introduction of Seward and Obihiro, Japan Exchange Students. <br /> Proclamation for Student Exchange Program. <br />
