Mayor asked Officer Marler to attend the study session to discuss the reason why the City’s Police Officers aren’t able to issue tickets on certain offenses.  Marler explained that the ordinances on the books and the Property Maintenance Code Book conflict with each other making it impossible to issue citations.  Jerry Kane stated the only way to do this will be to start on the first page and continue page by page and make the changes needed as we go.  Mayor Lehmkuhl asked the Board to take the book home and read it before next study session.

No further business; motion made by William Wagner and seconded by Jerry Kane to adjourn the study session at 8:37 p.m.  Vote taken.  Kane, Watts, Wagner, and Cline aye.

Deborah A. Cox, City Clerk
