(Crosby, MN) — Discussions at the Crosby City Council meeting Monday night leaned more towards the on-going talks concerning bicycles on city sidewalks, while touching on the potential of a State Shutdown among other issues from the City Hall Council Chambers.

The Council did approve the resignation of Alex Everson of the Crosby Fire Department, the payment for LETG Records Management/CAD usage renewal for the Police Department, payment to Hudrlik Carpet and Tile for the Hallett Center Fitness Room, to purchase one dehumidifier for the Water Treatment Plant, and the workshop administrative recommendations.

During the Public Comment Period, resident Vern Lewis wanted to speak to the Council on establishing a plan to keep bikes on the sidewalks safely as other communities have done.

President of the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber of Commerce Matt Larson spoke about their stance of working with the community and the City on finding a solution.

Following discussion on sidewalk replacement and Business Technology Review, City Administrator Matthew Hill opened talks on potential plans concerning a State Government Shutdown.

Administrator Hill also discussed adding signage when it comes to bikes on sidewalks and access to downtown businesses.

The Council approved entering into a Utility Easement with the Crosby-Ironton School District #182 for an underground utility extension and the Claims report was also reviewed following concern over billing from the Heritage Days committee over advertising expenses that were funded for by the City.

The Crosby City Council will next meet on Monday, July 12th at 6pm.
