Stillwater City Council

The council met Monday for about five hours and:

• Voted unanimously to extend City Manager Dan Galloway’s contract for another year with no changes.

• Received public input on the proposed 2009-10 city budget and asked Galloway to bring a budget resolution based on his presentation back to the council.

• Tabled the final plat and public improvements for the Stonecrest Addition until some of the councilors’ and homeowners’ issues can be resolved. The issue is tabled until the city has the opportunity to work with homeowners and the developer.

• Renewed an existing contract with OnCue Marketing, LLC. This is the final year the city can extend the contract.

• Heard from citizens on issues concerning softball fees, a community center, an office for the mayor, a pay raise for employees and the Stonecrest Addition, more than once prompting councilors to call a point of order.
