The public hearing was called to order by Mayor Heddlesten at 6:49 pm. The City Administrator was unable to attend, so the Mayor provided a review of the project details and the impact it made on the community.  There were some questions as to whether or not the Meals-To-Go program would be restarted and there was general agreement that the public health situation would have to warrant it before the City would consider re-starting the program. 

There were some residents present at the meeting who participated/benefited from the program.

The public hearing was adjourned by Mayor Heddlesten at 7:08 pm.
