Council President Tafelski made it back from his trip to Super Bowl XLIII just in time to preside over the latest City Council meeting Monday night. Councilman Doug Thomas made his first appearance of 2009, an occasion that did not go unnoticed by his fellow council members. Councilwoman Suzanne Sareini was not present, but all other council members appeared along with Mayor O’Reilly. Among the resolutions adopted during this week’s meeting:
- $121,717, at most, to Carlisle Fields & Co. to renew insurance for Dearborn Towers in Clearwater, FL.
-$90,000 to Play & Park Structures/Playworld Midstates to erect ADA compliant playscapes in the following neighborhood parks: Oak, Oxford, Summer-Stephens and York.
-$15,000 to Heritage Newspapers/Dearborn Press & Guide for publishing official city notices and records.
The Council observed a moment of silence to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Rouge Complex explosion and the lives it claimed. Condolences were also offered to the families of the late Carolyn Hahn and Ralph Cornell.
