He recognized efforts should be coordinated with the city. The Friends had always <br /> lobbied as a statewide group. They did not want to be the reason the city didn't get other <br /> appropriations, so they would work with the city to make sure that was not the case. <br /> Brandon Anderson spoke on the Civil Air Patrol and their annual fundraising project. They <br /> asked for cooperation from the community and also from the city for any funds they could give. <br /> Paul Rupple welcomed the new mayor and manager. He cautioned them to go slow while <br /> they were new in town. Priority lists in town should be infrastructure. Coastal Villages was a <br /> priority and stated the Jesse Lee Home should not be on the priority list. He felt these priorities may <br /> compete against each other. He advised those new on the council to take a walk through the home. <br /> Rupple also said there shouldn't be on the priority list paying off a bunch of lawyers to fight the <br /> RBCA lawsuit. <br /> Hilda Lespron just moved inside city limits. She had a letter from the Seward Arts Council <br /> and read it to the council. The Arts Council was requesting the City Council put $10,000 to the arts <br /> council back in the budget as it was taken out. Lespron listed the many events and performances to <br /> Seward. <br />
