June 2021 at City Hall (1st Half)

Updated: Jun 21


This week the City Council unanimously voted to appoint Mark Rodriguez to fill the vacant council seat. We had 22 applicants in total and 4 of those Council interviewed before reaching the decision to vote on appointing Mr. Rodriguez. You can read more about him in the Herald/Review's article on his appointment here.


In other news, we are still moving along in the process of approving a budget for FY 21-22 and have met for a special work session on Monday, June 14th. I've added a link to that video below after the videos for the two regular meetings this week.

Special Budget Work Session on Monday, June 14th
