Three Citizens Wishing To Be Heard spoke for about 13.5 minutes. 4. Animal Control Officers Recognition took six minutes. So the scheduled items took about twenty minutes, which is usual.

Chairman Bill Slaughter was absent, so the meeting was presided over by Vice-Chair Scottie Orenstein. They approved everything unanimously.
