City Council Considers Holding More Meetings in Summer Months
The Maryland Heights City Council voted on four pieces of legislation Thursday.
The Maryland Heights City Council is on its way to having a full complement of meetings in July and August. The council had an open discussion about the need for two regularly canceled meetings during the summer months.
Mayor Mike Moeller brought up the topic during the council comments portion of the Jan. 5 meeting. He said the first meeting in July and last meeting in August were canceled so council members could go on vacation and take their children to college.
City Manager Mark Levin said people generally have not scheduled their time off around the two standing canceled meetings. He said the practice the city started in 1986 was no longer appropriate for today’s lifestyle.
Levin said the city clerk would draft an ordinance eliminating the two canceled meetings, as they had been codified in the municipal code.
The council also passed four pieces of legislation Thursday night.
- An ordinance repealing Ordinance No. 2001-2090 concerning an employment agreement between the City of Maryland Heights and Mark M. Levin and enacting a new ordinance in lieu thereof
- An ordinance repealing Ordinance 2011-3574 regarding a city pay plan and enacting a new ordinance and revised pay plan in lieu thereof, the ordinance passed 8-0.
- An ordinance authorizing the mayor of the City of Maryland Heights to enter into a contract with Midwest Pool Management to provide management services for Aquaport to include maintenance and repair services provided by Westport Pools, Inc., the ordinance passed 8-0.
- An ordinance approving the minor subdivision record plat for the Subdivision of Part of Lot 4 of Riverside Center, the ordinance passed 8-0.
The next council meeting is scheduled for Jan. 19.
