Railroad Resolution: CM Augustyn moved to table the resolution, seconded by CM Kelley. Charles Randolph, a resident in Platte County and a retired BNSF train dispatcher spoke to the council about the resolution. Trains haul many different minerals through the community, and they are trying to run trains with 1 or no employees on them. If a train must stop the employee calls the dispatcher to let them know what is going on and if there is a problem, they can inform the dispatcher at that time. Each town he has presented the resolution to has passed this resolution without any dissenting votes. It’s imperative that we keep 2 people on every train car. Vote taken and motion carried with 4 ayes and 1 nay by CM Kelley.

Department Reports: Kate Farmer spoke to the council about the ordinances that she would like to see updated. There was no question. Mike Montgomery reported that things are running smoothly. He will be letting some seasonal help go soon. Matt Allred said that not receiving the AML grants was disappointing, but the projects are much tighter. We are laying track at the industrial park, a few hiccups but things are progressing at a good pace.
