Discussion only-Youth Council – Mayor Nelson shared that Rapid City’s youth council is made up of 6 schools, 3 students from each school. Monthly meetings are held. They have a Chair and Vice Chair. They attend City council meetings and take back topics to their own council. Can we do this in Hot Springs? Hot Springs High School is on board with the idea. A resolution would be required. More to come on this topic.

Mayor Report: The search for a new City Administrator is ongoing. I’ve received two (2) applications for the position but I’ll wait until more applications are received before I begin the process of screening the candidates. I’ve spoken with a number of community members whose opinions I respect and asked them to be on the initial screening committee and they’ve all agreed. My thought is too have these folks do the initial screening of everyone and provide me with a short list of the individuals they feel meet the job qualifications. From there, interviews will be conducted and a final recommendation to Council to fill the City Administrator position. The City has received a proposal from Andersen Engineering to address the failing retaining wall adjacent to the club house at the golf course. This will be an agenda item for the next Public Works committee to discuss and recommend a course of action. The redesigned City website is now active. The overall design has been updated and navigating the site is much easier. Changes and tweaks are likely to be needed but those changes will be much easier to accomplish with the new site. Finally, I want to thank everyone that was involved, whether large or small, in the Chamber of Commerce Fall River balloon festival the weekend of August 28. There are too many names to mention without the risk of forgetting someone. Even though the balloons weren’t able to launch on Saturday morning, the event was a huge success from the activities at Centennial Park Saturday morning to the night glow at a number of locations throughout the city. The Chamber is slowly building an event that has the potential to become a major drawing card for visitors to Hot Springs.
Adjournment: Being no further business to come before the Council, moved by Romey, seconded by Pratt, to adjourn at 9:06 p.m.
Bob Nelson, Mayor
Misty Summers-Walton, Finance Officer
