Councilmember Faith stated he was not aware of any motion brought up in Council Comments or Roundtable prior to the meeting, but admitted he could see how it may appear that way.

Councilmember Moreno stated he and Councilmember Mosby have had several conversations and site visits with Mrs. Fick and also believes Codes has done everything they can to help her.  He also stated he also feels WCA has shown great disrespect for the city by not improving its work within the city and would like the PWC to find a way to hold trash haulers accountable.

9. COMMITTEE REPORTS (Committee chairs report on matters held in  Committee):

Councilmember Faith advised of a change in officers for the Arts Council. Also, the June 23rd Council meeting includes a presentation by Duncan Webb with Webb Management to provide a cultural arts plan.

10. COUNCIL ROUNDTABLE:
Councilmember Moreno extended congratulations to Nick and Jennie Swearngin who were named as “Citizens of the Year”. They were nominated by Mayor Rhoads for the 2016 Truman Heartland Community Foundation Citizen of the Year and the Missouri Municipal League Civic Leadership Award.

Councilmember Mosby stated the City Manager and the City Attorney presented violations and penalties for councilmembers during two Charter Review Commission meetings. He wanted to know if there they would be present violations and penalties for Staff at the Charter Commission. Mr. Head responded a Staff member would could be fired if they violate the Charter. The Council has little ability to police their members. In reviewing the Charter as a whole, he looked for places where there was no recourse for violations. The Charter is silent on procedures to remove a councilmember. Including a process in the Charter will provide the Council with procedures if a violation occurs. One requirement considered by the Charter Commission is for the Council to adopt an Ethics Code. ”. Mr. Mosby repeated the above question. Mr. Head said "no".

Councilmember Forte requested the CEDC Committee review the UDO, Article 12, Section 12.160.A.1), which regulates the parking of all forms of recreational vehicles. There are certain HOAs that allow boats and boat trailers in driveways.

Councilmember  Binney:
Suggested Staff inspect the archway at New Longview for stability. He also asked for an update on the New Longview TIF, including information on whether or not the New Longview Foundation was responsible for upkeep on the arch.

The Tour de Lakes bicycle race will be held July 5th.

Since the Council acted during Council Comments on video taping the Charter Commission meetings, Councilmember Binney thought perhaps a resolution would be best to finalize the action. Although taping all the boards and commissions is good in theory, the Council should ask for all costs entailed to film those meetings.

There will be an open house at the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport this weekend.

Councilmember Binney also asked about UDO requirements for downtown murals. Mr. Mark Dunning, Assistant City Manager, advised this issue was referred back to the CEDC.

Councilmember Moreno noted that Charter Commission members stated their proposed changes to the Charter are presented directly to the voters. Mr. Head explained the provisions in the Charter that state this is true. The Council will be presented with an ordinance calling for the election for the issues on which the citizens will vote.

Councilmember Mosby moved to DENY the instructions to Staff to bring back a resolution restricting the motion abilities of councilmembers. Motion was seconded by Councilmember Moreno.

DISCUSSION: Councilmember Binney explained his comment was for a resolution to confirm the action taken by the Council in an earlier meeting to require Charter Commission meetings to be broadcast.

Councilmember Mosby WITHDREW his motion and Councilmember Moreno withdrew his second.

Councilmember Edson was concerned about the difficulty of reading Public Hearing signs placed on properties. Mr. Arbo stated Staff will look at alternatives, perhaps a QR Code that people could download.

In answer to a question from Councilmember Moreno, Mr. Arbo advised there are plans to provide shoulders for Todd George Parkway. Mr. George Binger, City Engineer, stated there are plans to start construction this year.

11. STAFF ROUNDTABLE:
Mr. Arbo provided an update on the improvements to Lee’s Summit Road. Although Staff was expecting the road to be opened in the next couple of days, the Kansas City Water Authority has four crossing that need to be in place before opening. Initial plans were to bore beneath the roadway but could not because of rock and now need to trench. Plans now are to open the road either early next week or the first of July.

12. ADJOURNMENT

There being no further business, Mayor Rhoads adjourned the City Council Regular Session No. 4 at 11:35 p.m.

For your convenience, City Council agendas, as well as videos of City Council and Council Committee meetings, may be viewed on the City’s Internet site at   "www.cityofls.net".
