 Meetings and Announcements

  • Our next Council meeting will occur on Monday, November 13, 2023.  Currently we do not have a workshop scheduled. There may be an EDA at this meeting or on the 27th

My retirement- I will be working with Mayor Abrams to outline a process for your consideration at an upcoming workshop.  The first step is to hire a consultant to conduct the recruitment process. 

Gold Line Project Update – Century Ave Closure
As part of the Gold Line construction work that is currently taking place, the section of Century Avenue underneath I-94 in both the north and south directions will be temporarily closing. The closure is scheduled to start on November 2nd and run through November 10th.  Hudson Boulevard to the east of the Century Avenue will still be open during this time.  West bound I-94 ramps will be closed, but east bound I-94 ramps will be opened.  Detours will be signed on Conway Avenue, McKnight Road, and Lower Afton Road. 

Congratulations to Chief Mondor
Chief Mondor received  his Chief Fire Officer (CFO) designation from the Center for Public Safety Excellence.  Attached is a screen shot from Linked In. This is a pretty amazing designation that requires a lot of time and work.  I want to thank the City Council for supporting employees to participate in on-going training and education! Continuing education is great for our employees and for the city overall. Congratulations Chief Mondor.  

That’s our news for the week. It appears that winter is making an appearance this weekend -hope the Trunk or Treat event goes well. Melinda
