There are two special meetings of the Ames City Council  coming up this Saturday (Jan 20th) starting at 8:00 a.m. and lasting into mid afternoon.

 

The goal setting meetings are very influential, but it has been my experience that they are often overlooked, and rarely attended by the public.


The meetings will be facilitated by Donna Gilligan, and will focus on getting to know each other, establishing systems for working together, and most importantly, setting our goals for 2018. (It is also a time for us to pare away any old goals, or those we feel have fallen from priority status.)

 

What we spend our time on during 2018 will be guided heavily by the goals prioritized at these two sessions.

Hello friends,

I apologize for the delay in getting this Council Review finished.  The last few weeks have been very hectic for me and the gradually shorter days often make it feel like there are just not enough hours in the day for everything I want to accomplish.

Dan DeGeest's Council Review

 

Hi Friends,

The meeting began with the Mayor proclaiming October 8-14, 2017 as “Coming Out Week”.  This proclamation reaffirmed the City's commitment to nondiscrimination and inclusiveness and highlighted the inaugural Pridefest, which took place in Bandshell Park on Saturday, October 14. In today's national climate it is more important than ever to show our solidarity and support for acceptance and equal rights and it was nice to see the City embracing that effort.

Beyond that, it was a fairly routine meeting Tuesday night, but there were several important items receiving council votes.  See below for details and thanks for reading.
