Street Closures, Stool To Cool Taskforce Update Ahead Of City Council Budget Work Session

WAYNE – The first of two budget work sessions is being planned ahead of Tuesday night’s Wayne City Council regularly scheduled meeting.

From the council chambers inside the City Hall, the July 20 meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Councilmembers will first be officially introduced to new police officer employees. They’re Megan Mandeville and Devan Henschke.

An annual request from Grace Lutheran Church will follow to block off one block of 10th Street between Main Street and Logan Street along the Willow Bowl. This would be for the Sunday School Rally Day festival on Sunday, August 15 between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.

With Wayne Post 43 Legion baseball hosting the Area 5 Senior Tournament between Friday, July 23 – Wednesday, July 28, the group is requesting to close Windom Street between 3rd and 4th Streets.

Councilmember Jason Karsky, Chair of the ‘Stool to Cool’ taskforce will then provide an update on the recent survey.

A discussion and possible action item will also pertain to directing staff on roof issues at the Community Activity Center. Intermittent leaking has been noted by CAC staff over the gym space for a few years. A recommendation will be brought before council to consider a spray method to seal the roof. Multiple contractors and staff members have been on the roof and tried different methods to stop the leaking but it has only gotten worse.

The budget work session will close out Tuesday evening’s meeting.
