1. PUBLIC COMMENTS:

Dr. Jacqueline Gates asked the city to make public all invoices and checks made payable to Diane Forte / Diane Forte LLC from the City of Lee's Summit Parks and Recreation Department and for these invoices, checks and emails regarding these transactions to be made public.

Mr. Todd Haynes felt taxpayer money was being wasted as the Council is spending too much time on the issue with Councilmember Forte and not enough time on city business. He feels the council has become a circus. He was told members of the council would ask for Councilmember Forte's resignation from Council this evening and he did not agree with this. He stated this Council needs leadership and asked the Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem to assist in getting the Council back to business and making Lee's Summit great again.

Mr. Clark Patterson stated he would like to see the Council adopt an Ethics Code for both Council and employees. He also quoted state statute on nepotism.

Ms. Lynn Hinkle read quotes from the LS Cares website regarding Lee's Summit and being a "Community of Character". She feels Lee's Summit has lost its character recently though Council interactions and would like them to come together again for the greater good of the city as a whole.

(Councilmember Forte "Away From Table", Councilmembers Faith and Seif "Absent")

Councilmember Edson asked Mr. Steve Arbo, City Manager, for an update on bringing information back to the City Council regarding the Cultural Arts Master Plan. Mr. Arbo stated the Council had approved the plan and staff will work on implementation of the plan. However, there are no funds allocated in the budget for a full time staff person to compile the necessary information at this time. He felt having the Finance and Budget Committee review first and then bringing the matter to the full Council would be the best way to start the process. Councilmember Edson stated there are several mechanisms available to provide possible assistance in funding for certain parts of this plan and provided examples.

Councilmember Mosby stated he and his wife came to downtown Lee's Summit last weekend and he was happy to see how busy the downtown area was. He feels that with continued efforts with the city, LSEDC and the Chamber of Commerce, we will continue to see the community growing in downtown.

Councilmember Moreno asked for an public update on the large trash containers that were located in front of Big Lots. Mr. Arbo advised the trash containers were now gone. They were being used by Westlake to discard lighting while they were updating their interior lights throughout the store. There is a permit process for businesses using these large trash containers for extended periods of time and this will continue to be monitored.

Mayor Rhoads closed the Council Roundtable by advising that Councilmember Seif had a new grandson this evening.
