Regarding Resolution 2018-012 for the Historic Preservation Commission on the agenda <br /> tonight, Krug said he was available if council had any questions. <br /> John Moline said misconduct, incompetence and failure to perform were the only grounds <br /> for council recall. He said he had spoken before council one year ago with a concern about noise <br /> violations that affected his business.Now he wanted to say that Safeway had been conducting diesel <br /> generator testing every Thursday for the last five weeks at 4:00 a.m.Moline said there was an illegal <br /> bear bait station outside of Safeway that he had been trying to bring awareness to. He said the city <br /> hired a local business to clean city-owned parking lots,rather than use its own staff and equipment, <br /> and was concerned that the business was using an unlicensed, uninspected vehicle to do the work. <br /> Moline felt there was discrimination in the city against people who were not "related to local <br /> hierarchy"; he said it was council's job to correct mismanagement. <br />
