Sure. 00:00:00
I appreciate everybody coming here for my birthday and. 00:00:01
Happy birthday to you at all singing All I Want. 00:00:05
But I do have birthday cake over here and please get your slice. Grateful for another year, that's for sure. Alrighty. Is there a 00:00:10
motion we approve the minutes? 00:00:16
So moved. 00:00:22
Second, have motion second for the minutes. All in favor, say aye. Minutes approved. 00:00:23
All right. No department comments today. How about that? Nobody. 00:00:29
OK, Mayor Maddox, not to you. Yes, The first thing we want to mention to the council is that we are going to begin an upgrade to 00:00:34
our payment software, to our immune system. 00:00:39
This is going to impact our water business office building, permanent counter and revenue office. 00:00:45
They're going to have to be closed on Friday. Excuse me, Thursday, October 5th and Friday, October 6th. I can't find my glasses 00:00:51
anywhere and I know there's somewhere anybody finds a pair of glasses. 00:00:55
But yeah, so I'm making up my name. May need you to hold this off for me. 00:01:02
So these city operations will not be open that day. We the payment software upgrades are really going to continue the the vast 00:01:08
improvements we're making in that area. 00:01:13
We are putting a messaging plan together. This kicks off about three weeks of messaging we're going to be doing out in the 00:01:19
community. 00:01:22
Just to make people aware of this. 00:01:26
So if you have any questions, let me know 311. 00:01:28
Has been fully advised of it so. 00:01:32
And certainly Jason Foster and his team can give you the the specifics behind the upgrades, but we're really excited about it. But 00:01:35
it's going to have to cost us to be down. So it'll take three to four days to do the full implementation. 00:01:41
Which we're doing on again Thursday and Friday, and that leaves us a couple of days to get into a testing environment. 00:01:48
To make certain everything's working before we're back open on the following Monday. 00:01:54
OK. 00:01:59
That's all I have, all right. 00:02:00
Anybody have any questions for the mayor? 00:02:03
All right. 00:02:06
Homes. 00:02:09
Yes, Sir. Good afternoon, council. Good afternoon. Happy birthday, Mr. Tyner. Your your president. You're going to have to listen 00:02:10

4. 00:02:19
I am over here at #7 public hearings. What you have is the 3 honorary St. renamings that were set for public hearing last week. 00:02:22
I will note that the item on page 18. This is the renaming of 6th St. in honor of Gary Fitz. 00:02:31

Remnant section the the lady brought to your attention. We have amended the ordinance. 00:02:42

That should fix her problem. That's not what is before y'all tonight, but that's the final version of the ordinance that will come 00:02:52
before you on October the Third. 00:02:56
Australia. 00:03:01
The whether or not the Remnant portion of 6th St. gets renamed administratively will fall within Miss Wright's office, I believe. 00:03:03
Maybe not based upon the way she's looking at me, but her, her and I can her and I can discuss that. But this, this, quite 00:03:12
frankly, Mr. Tyner, if the rest of it becomes fits. 00:03:16

Get Get one step. To give the one step raise that was in the mayor's recommended budget, we have to suspend the pay plan and 00:08:14

Employees as part of code. 00:08:44

This step has to be taken to grant the COLA for our public safety employees. There is no additional step that has to be taken to 00:08:59
apply the COLA by Council for for the for Exhibit C employees. 00:09:07
