from the public:
Kate Stock spoke on behalf of Milan Elementary School

the children will be riding their bikes along Carr St. to Pike Lumber. Noel Houze
suggested to Officer Wilson that an officer be present to slow traffic. Officer
Wilson said they would have officers present.
Jane Vinup asked for an update on the Rental Ordinance.
Noel informed her that John was still working on collecting information on property
owners. A question arose concerning the residents in the trailer court and those
renting land where owned trailers sat. Would these be subject to inspection? As
the Ordinance reads now, they would qualify to be included in the inspection.
Property owner, Bill Wagner, asked the Council why
the two blocks chosen were to be renamed Kohlmeier Way? Don Call informed him because
of the location to the Kohlmeier home. Mr. Wagner voiced his concern about the inconvenience
to the business at his location in regards to changing all business mailing. Clerk
informed Council that there were two property owners still not notified. Noel asked
to have those owners notified by service from the Milan Police Dept. Officer Wilson

Bids were presented to Council on the resurfacing and
Culvert projects. Don Call suggested tabling opening of bids because of the omission

but, because of the number of bids presented, Council will take all under advisement
and make a final decision at a later date. Noel Houze made suggestion to meet again
