9. COUNCIL ROUNDTABLE:

Councilmember Binney noticed this afternoon that the recycling bins at the schools were being removed due to increased costs form Deffenbaugh. He asked Staff to talk with Kansas City about the North Recycling Center on Lee's Summit Road. He suggested talking with HES to see if they would make recycling available. If not, how could be done with the North Recycling Center. Also, this might be the time to revisit a trash hauler contract, due to the many complaints about current service. He wondered if there was a public desire to select a hauler for the entire city, which may be the answer to the recycling problem, and he would be interested in public feedback.

Councilmember Binney reminded the Council that e-mails were not the place to conduct business, only from the dais. If they wanted to take action or distribute information, that information should be brought to the meeting.

Councilmember Moreno complimented the Police Department on a video running on the City's cable channel.

Mayor Rhoads announced that the Fire Department obtained accreditation. This was a long process but worth the challenge. At the ceremony, there were amazing things said about the department and he felt the city should be extremely proud.

10. STAFF ROUNDTABLE:

There being no further business, Mayor Rhoads ADJOURNED the August 18, 2016, Regular Session No. 10 at 9:04 p.m.
