      Is there a motion to adopt the resolution as submitted? 

    3. Request to Declare Sign Posts as Surplus Property 

      Presented for City Council’s consideration is a request to declare sign posts as surplus property.

Prior to selling the posts to this individual, they must first be declared as surplus property.

      Is there a motion to approve the request as submitted? 

    4. Request from Traffic Committee to Install “No Parking” on West Side of Ohio Street 

      Presented for City Council’s consideration is a request from the Traffic Committee to install “No Parking” on the west side of Ohio Street. It has been brought to the Committee’s attention that when vehicles are parked on both sides of Ohio Street, Equipment Operators cannot get their plows through the street because it is too narrow. This change will not adversely affect residents in the area.

      Is there a motion to approve the request as submitted?
