Council rule changes, meeting times to be finalized July 26

The main highlight of the Monday, July 26, Sunnyside City Council meeting is expected to be a series of procedural changes for meetings.

Council is expected to adopt a resolution limiting the number of meetings each month from four to two. Under the resolution, Council will meet on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 6:30 p.m. Council is also expected to adopt a change that limits public participation for non-agenda items from being on the agenda twice to just once every meeting.

Also scheduled to be before Council July 26 is a public hearing for the city's six-year transportation improvement program and a set of liquor license renewals. Council is also expected to convene in executive session.

Council approves chamber request

The Sunnyside City Council this past Monday night formally approved a budget amendment to fund a request from the Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber had approached Council earlier this month about providing matching funds for a grant it had received from U.S. Bank. The chamber was seeking $2,748 from the city to providing matching dollars for the grant that will be used to upgrade the electrical system on Sixth Street between Decatur and Franklin avenues. The upgrade is designed to provide more electrical capacity for events occurring in the downtown area.

The matching funds Council approved will come from the city's tourism fund.
