  • Resolutions to award bids for construction equipment (including a skid steer and dump truck) to be used by the Public Works department.

Review the entire agenda.

The public is invited to attend in person or watch from home:

Be Prepared for Extreme Heat
Temperatures are expected to stay in the 90s next week and into the weekend. Heat indexes are predicted to crack triple digits. Stay cool with these tips:

  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Stay indoors as much as possible.
  • Take pets outside in the morning or late in the evening.
  • Cover windows or shades with drapes.
  • Go to naturally occurring cool places, such as the library or shopping malls.
  • Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
  • Learn the signs of heat exhaustion and stroke. (Learn more from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).)

If you must be outside, remember:

  • Try to plan for heavy exertion activities in the morning or evening hours, when it’s cooler.
  • Wear a wide-brim hat.
  • Wear sunscreen.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Take frequent breaks in the shade or a cool place.
  • Monitor yourself and others for signs of heat-related illnesses.
  • Check in with colleagues or friends who are also out in the heat.
