Kolas said the items voted on included a mandatory statement from the board about about potential conflicts of interest which informs the state of possible dealings between board members and the city.

The board also approved grant money from various agencies to repair runways at the airport.

In a last bit of business, an additional part-time Paramedic for the ambulance district was authorized. Kolas sees the added personnel as a big benefit for the city’s emergency services.
