Old Settlers was on the agenda at the April 19 city council meeting as local businesses make plans for the town celebration.

Randy Dodge requested permission to drill holes in West 7th Street in front of Dodger Bowl. The holes will be used to hold up a tent for a beer garden and dance area Friday, June 24. Dodge has previously received permission to close that section of street for the evening.

On Saturday the tent would be moved to west side of the bowling alley, on Dodger Bowl property.

The city approved Dodger Bowl beer gardens for both nights requested and one in the city park sponsored by the North Bend Chamber of Commerce June 25 and 26.

The council spent time discussing the hail damage done to city hall, two sewer plant buildings and the east flat part of the city auditorium. It is not known when the damage occurred, but insurance has been received to repair the damage. Bids for repair was reviewed. It was put on hold until the next meeting when the owner of the building city hall has a common roof with will come and they will discuss options.

Councilman Kevin Ferguson has started a program to change out a toilet at the city auditorium every year, but there were no funds to continue the project. Eight thousand dollars was moved from the general fund to the auditorium fund for this project.

The council approved a bid from Emanuel Custom Welding to build two catwalks for the sewer plant.

Ordinances approved by Scribner that allow three and four wheelers and golf carts on city streets were reviewed. It was suggested that the North Bend Council prepare an ordinance for the same with registration date and fees for reading at the next meeting.

The council approved hiring Steve Chromy at $9 per hour and Brady Renter at $8.50 per hour for part-time maintenance and mowing.

The next meeting is May 3.
