I arrived at the meeting about 30 minutes late. So I missed the public comments and the award presentation to Jeremy Barlow . Please refer to the formal agenda on the city website and the meeting presentation for more complete background info all issues. All decisions made were unanimous.
Public Comment: There were about 25 people in attendance when I arrived. I expect there were 10 or 20 more there for the award presentation.
