Organizational Resolutions of Sutherland Council


January 16, 2020

The first of each year can be difficult for many boards and councils to have much new information for consideration or decisions. That was the case at the Sutherland City Council meeting on January 6, 2020. What the council did accomplish with new members, including newly elected council member Chase Cox serving as Mayor Pro Tem that evening, was to pass a number of organizational resolutions.

Among the resolutions passed were the appointment of the City Clerk, Amanda Vanderhoff; naming Security State Bank as the depository; adopting a required investment policy; authorization for the city clerk and mayor to pay certain claims in vacation and authorizing the clerk, mayor and mayor pro tem to execute certain financial institution documents. One resolution on the agenda that was voted down was the selection of Smith, Grigg, Shea and Klinker as the City Attorney. The reasons are not immediately clear.

A Public Hearing date to set the maximum tax dollars from certain levies was set. That Public Hearing will be held at the City Council Chambers on Monday February 3 at 7:00pm. This Public Hearing is a new requirement set by the state legislature in an effort to improve transparency of city finances. It will show the maximum levy that any city can adopt in its full coming budget for only certain levies. It will not reflect all levies that can be adopted by a city.

The council was reminded that a budget workshop is scheduled for January 20 at 6:30pm.
