She expressed concern regarding the litigation with the <br /> Resurrection Bay Conservation Alliance (RBCA) and the City of Seward. She did not understand <br /> why the city would pay $150,000 in legal fees for this lawsuit or why RBCA was taking actions <br /> against this community. She encouraged the community to urge RBCA to end this legal battle. The <br /> public should also encourage this group to not only end the lawsuit but also to educate the <br /> community. Dunham thanked Anderson for her service to the community. He appreciated her <br /> bringing this topic up to the council as a citizen. <br /> APPROVAL OF AGENDA AND CONSENT AGENDA <br /> Motion (Bardarson /Shafer) Approval of Agenda and Consent Agenda <br />
