Juvenile curfew on city council agenda

The Friona city council will meet in regular session Monday July 14 at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers at 619 Main St. All council meetings are open to the public.

The meeting will open with two public hearings as advertised in this Friona Star. One hearing will be to hear comments on the renewal of the juvenile curfew ordinance. The other hearing is for comments on the annual drinking water quality report. Members of the public will have time to comment on the two topics.

The mayor will appoint and swear in Municipal Court Judge Deborah Campbell for a two year term 2014 to 2016.

In regular session the council will consider and take action on items:

* approve minutes of previous council meetings.

* approve ordinance granting Atmos Energy franchise and rights to conduct business in the city.

* authorize city manager Patricia Phipps to sign contract with data billing company to bill and collect for Friona EMS services.

* authorize city manager to sign an amendment to the Atmos Energy lease agreement for the office space in back of city hall.

* consider request from Adriana Stowers to hold a sidewalk sale at Creative Chaos, 613 Main St., for July 18-19.

* consider and take action to abolish or modify the juvenile curfew ordinance.

* authorize city manager to transfer sanitation administrative tax to the general fund.

* appointment of Kathy Sandoval and Ann Kelley to the Friona Public Library advisory board for a two year term ending in 2015.

* approve accounts payable and financial statements.

At the end of this public agenda, the council will go into closed executive session for the annual evaluation of the city manager, then reconvene into regular session and consider further action, if any, on executive session discussion.

These items of business make up the tentative council agenda and are subject to change. The final agenda will be posted on the front window of city hall 72 hours prior to the meeting.
