The first Sedalia City Council meeting of 2016 will be a short one, with only two items for decision on the budget.

Council will review a proposal for $10,000 and an ordinance approving and accepting an agreement with Davey Resource Group for a tree inventory of approximately 1,897 City right-of-way trees.

According to information in the meeting packet, this expense is covered by a Missouri Department of Conservation TRIM grant. The City’s match share is $3,650. Of the match, $150 will be in cash and $3,500 will be in-kind labor. This is the sixth year the City has received this grant.

Council will also review an ordinance repealing Ordinance No. 10383, which authorized the acceptance of a quit claim deed from Pettis County for sections of Main Street and Oak Grove Lane and the acceptance of those streets for city maintenance. According to the meeting packet, the ordinance will be reintroduced to council when the county is able to submit the necessary paperwork.

During the pre-council meeting, council will hear an annual report from the Scott Joplin International Ragtime Foundation.

During the meeting Mayor Steve Galliher will present awards to the 2015 Christmas Lighting Contest winners:

First place, Darrell Dodson and Elwanda Tanner, 901 E. Broadway Blvd.

Second place, John and Susan Malone, 3302 Southwest Blvd.

Third place, Charles and Bev Gerke, 322 E. 14th St.

The Sedalia City Council pre-meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the mayor’s conference room with the regular meeting immediately following at 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Municipal Building, 200 S. Osage Ave. For more information, call 827-3000.
