The Cuba City Council has been looking for ways to improve its system of reporting and then enforcing nuisance ordinance violations around town. A special committee formed to discuss the matter decided that making the procedures already in place work more efficiently is better than completely overhauling the process.
The Cuba City Council met in regular session on Tuesday, October 2 to discuss the following items of city business:
• Mayor Ray Mortimeyer asked that the UTV discussion on the agenda be tabled until a later date, as the committee had not completed its recommendations for an ordinance. He also asked that approval of the executive session minutes from September 18 be held until the executive session scheduled for that evening, giving council members additional time to review the minutes before accepting them. The council agreed to his requests for agenda changes.
