Lafayette council to meet Thursday
The agenda includes an emergency operations plan, a legal services provider, a sign ordinance amendment and a possible fire service merger with the New Carlton Fire District.
Lafayette participated in a training exercise sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the spring. It plans to follow up my naming an emergency program manager, the most likely choice being City Administrator Preston Polazek.
The city obtained a grant from the Department of Homeland Security to develop an emergency operations plan. It can be found at www.ci.lafayette.or.us under “government,” “agendas and minutes.”
The council finds itself in the market for a new law firm because Harrang Long Gary Rudnick advises it is now “focusing its legal scope away from general municipal services,” though it is willing to continue until the city can secure a replacement.
The council is also planning to distribute $5,000 in local grants, approve a $12,000 bid from Grove, Mueller & Swank for the annual audit, consider the commissioning of a new city logo and discuss the creation of a citizen of the year award.
