Council approves oil leases



"Some of them do not have the resources to do this and the more visibility we get for them the better," he said. 

Carpenter echoed Barboza's concerns. 

"We already lost one citizen to this a few years ago," he said. "I would like to see this put on the front burner." 

Carpenter also raised concerns over the city soliciting proposals for a health insurance program consultant. 

"Why do we need to spend money on hiring a consultant," he asked. 

Fairburn said the city needs to get in sync with Federal health care changes, and this will give the city better insight into the system and what changes need to be made. 

There will be no meeting next Monday and city offices will be closed to observe Veteran's Day.
