Dunham. <br /> OPENING CEREMONY <br /> Lieutenant Butch Tiner led the pledge of allegiance to the flag. <br /> ROLL CALL <br /> There were present: <br /> Willard E. Dunham, presiding; and Marianna Keil <br /> Bob Valdatta Vanta Shafer <br /> Tom Smith Ristine Casagranda <br /> comprising a quorum of the Council; and <br /> Phillip Oates, City Manager <br /> Johanna Kinney, City Clerk <br /> Absent — Jean Bardarson <br /> CITIZENS' COMMENTS ON ANY SUBJECT EXCEPT THOSE ITEMS SCHEDULED <br /> FOR PUBLIC HEARING <br /> Mary Hart, on behalf of GCI, stated she first saw the proposed new design standards <br /> contained in tonight's resolution late last Thursday afternoon; she said they were not shared at all <br /> with GCI prior to the City receiving them, and they did not comply with the GCI's existing <br /> requirements and was a breach of contract. If the permits were not issued very soon, Seward would <br /> not be getting fiber optic. If the council accepted the resolution tonight, it would create a contract <br /> dispute. She asked council approve GCI's permit requests. <br /> Matt Hershock thanked the crew who painted the street lines on Fourth Avenue; he <br /> appreciated them coming in before business hours. He also thanked the crew who went down to the <br /> waterfront during the tsunami false alarm to notify them that it was a false alarm. Further, he thanked <br /> the crews for getting the power back on today; he asked what methods of communication were used; <br /> Oates noted they had press releases and had visited businesses to inform them. <br /> Matt Gray gave kudos for the Public Works department for pulling together the Scheffler <br /> Creek Pedestrian Bridge Project; he hoped it would help the environmental concerns, repair some <br /> damage that had been done to the vegetation there, and would get more attention to the area. He <br /> thanked everyone involved with the project. <br /> �.., Y P j <br />
