c) Bennett asked Council to have the overgrown bushes at the entrance of the Lake Park taken out. Kenny Banks has been contacted and is in agreement. The Crew will get it on their schedule to clean up. The crew will also clean up the broken playground equipment on the east side of the park. Council will need to discuss if they want to keep/replace the playground equipment or take it out permanently. The Parks & Rec committee will take this under discussion.
d) The Old Settlers committee had asked to repaint the Lions Bandstand . The Lions group did the painting before and would rather keep that responsibility with their organization. Gibbs will ask Crew to check the ceiling of the bandstand for leaks.

Rodgers brought up adding stop signs to specific streets to help with the speeding issue. The Street Committee for Rupe and Holmes will develop a plan for possible locations for additional stop signs.
g) Gibbs will email Wiltamuth the current list of registered golf carts, ATVs, etc.
h) Pool manager Grismore reported on pool season preparation and shared a list of prices for pool use that was developed with Rodgers and Christian. Council thanked Grismore for her work and gave their support to the plan. Council will work with the Crew on a timeline for getting the pool ready which would include getting the water turned on for pool house, mowing, spraying the fence for weeds, getting mulch for the flag pool, and checking that all lights are working
i) Grismore asked if guards could get paid when they attend required training. They currently have to pay for their own training. Ideas for an incentive plan were discussed where guards who pass training and join the pool staff would get ½ of training paid for.
