   Don __________, Lakeshore Environmental described how the stacks will be taken
   down on the Sappi Property.

   The Commission was apprised of a procedural error that occurred at the June 27,
   2017 meeting – there was an affirmation vote but no motion to approve the budget.
   This will be addressed at the regular meeting.
   Frank Peterson, City Manager, explained the request for replacement of the dasher
   boards at the LC Walker Arena.

   New Psalmtrees Mobile Botique is requesting Commission approval to sell various
   items from a mobile concession. Commission discussion took place and the
   concensus is that the best place for a mobile boutique is the Flea Market which is
   open each Wednesday. Pere Marquette vendors are geared more toward food and
   beach items.

Adjournment – Moved by Vice Mayor Hood, second by Commissioner Johnson, to
adjourn the meeting at 7:45 p.m.

                                              Respectfully Submitted,

                                              City Clerk
