Council discussed how long to keep City Hall closed due to the Covid 19 pandemic and other options to handle other City facilities like Walden, local parks and the pool.

Council will make final decision on the pool at the next meeting May 20. City Hall will remain closed until further notice. Walden will remain closed pending recommendation of the Governor.

Mayor asked for good cause business.

1. Moorman has received questions from residents about the cost of building permits and at which size for dog houses, rabbit hutches, garden sheds etc will incur the $200 permit fee. Larger buildings incur the fee, not necessarily dog houses. Zoning regulations will need to be reviewed.
