In Round table discussion Council member Nagel suggested the area by the library would be an excellent spot for the skating rink. It would be city owned property (for liability purposes), there would be easy access to the rink.  We could open the bathrooms at the auditorium if needed. This area is well lit with the street lights and we could use the benches that are on Commercial Ave. Discussion that it would need to be dug down about 3 inches and the city will construct a shelter to be used for warming and an area to put on skates. Council members all agreed this was an excellent idea. Council member Bausch stated that Wednesday they are coming to test the fire alarm at the auditorium.
Moved by Lehman, seconded by VanBockel, motion carried to adjourn at 7:32PM
