In what Mayor Dobosh called "maybe the shortest meeting ever," the Toledo City Council was short and right to the point. The meeting was called to order at 6:00 PM on April 4th, and went straight to the public report section. A public works representative spoke about an agreement with the county which is soon going to expire. After the Centralia landfill closed in 1992, all the cities met and agreed to form the disposal district. The interlocal agreement is set to expire next April. The agreement does not seem to need fixes for anything as the agreement has worked very well. The last agreement was for 25 years so the next agreement will most likely be for the same length of time. The price has stayed pretty steady as the disposal district did their best to keep their prices minimal for as long as possible. The agreement will be discussed in the coming months, and the cities may meet on it in November.
Amber Buck, on the Board of Human Response, spoke to the city council about April being Sexual Assault Awareness Month. She would like the city to recognize this and sign a proclamation recognizing this month. This committee helps victims of sexual assault and domestic violence feel secure by paying for services like medical costs and even providing a safe haven away from the danger. One of three women will or have been a victim of sexual assault, and one of ten children will be sexually abused by age 18. Guy Spratt motioned for the council to sign the proclamation, and Carol Hill seconded this. The council officially recognized this month as Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
There was no report from the city clerk. Police chief John Brockmueller said there was 26 calls to service in the last two weeks and the department was functioning well.
