City Council is ready for another session tonight. Top of the agenda is a letter form the Town of Stoughton supporting the City's decision to decommission the Civic Auditorium. 

"The outlying areas definitely appreciate the support we are giving them with the needed extra ice time now that the Civic has closed," explained Mayor Roy Ludwig. "They do appreciate that. And Stoughton is another one that is coming forward and giving us a letter of appreciation."

As well, there are a number of tenders to be discussed from Roads and Drainage.

"We're getting different equipment as we do every year and that is something that would have been in the budget. usually we go with the lowest tender but we will be going over all of those."

"There was a mail-out insert and some people had mentioned that now that we're discussing how to mitigate the issue of the people who have already paid for their sewer main replacement, how are we going to help to make that right? I guess some people thought in the mail-out, because it was passed, that it was a little bit premature to have that sent out so the City Manager is going to explain that."

City Council will convene tonight at 6 pm at City Hall.
