5. PUBLIC HEARING: Mayor Beckstead opened the Public Hearing on the Proposed Changes to the Nuisance Ordinance. There were no comments. Mayor Beckstead then closed the Public Hearing.
6. STAFF REPORTS:
 A. Sheriff: Deputy Endicott was present to address the Council. He indicated that for part of the month of March he was training other deputies so he had not been present in South County. The concentration on speeding tickets does take time away from other activities, but he has reduced his time at the schools to compensate.
 Mayor Beckstead noted that Russ Harper, General Manager of PacWest was present, and moved the proclamation up on the agenda. Mr. Harper addressed the Council, thanking them for the City's proclamation. Mayor Beckstead indicated that the Central Oregon Coast Fire and Rescue would also be receiving an original.
 B. City Administrator: Ms. Leonard reported that the City had received approval for the Park Equipment Grant from Trust Management Systems of Waldport for $7023 for playground equipment at the Crestline Park. The $12,500 Grant from Lincoln County Economic Development Alliance, which had originally been given for a RARE participant, will be used for work on the Downtown Revitalization Program and a Parks Master Plan. Ms. Leonard has written to the County Commissioners, and they approved the grant to carry over into the next fiscal year. Council of Governments has also procured a $5,000 grant to add to that to work towards creation of a Parks Master Plan and potential development of a Parks District. The Transportation Enhancement Grant for $1M is in the "proposed to be funded" category, and the final decision should be made around May 13. The ODOT technical crew needs more detail, and Ms. Leonard and Mr. Lewis will be going to the valley tomorrow to meet with them. Ms. Leonard stated that they may increase the grant if needed. The interim funding for the South Sewer Project has been secured through DEQ and the engineering has begun. The actual construction will take place next year, as the engineering and permitting will take longer than originally anticipated. Ms. Leonard assured the Council that the funding sources did not have a problem with the delay. The final item on her report was that Geng Sing Restaurant has made application for a liquor license though OLCC. New applications require Council approval, and Ms. Leonard asked if the Council wished to give her authority to sign the application. Councilor Welch moved to approve, Mayor Beckstead seconded, and the motion carried unanimously on a voice vote.
 C. City Attorney: Not present.
 D. Public Works Director: Mr. McClintock reported that the application for Southworth Creek water rights extension is completed and in Salem. The City was asking for a 50-year extension to 2050, as the original permit expired in 2000. The Raw Water Project is almost complete. USDA representatives had visited recently and toured the Wastewater Treatment Plan and the area for the Golf Course project. Mr. McClintock noted that the problems with the sirens in the recent tsunami test were due to the phone connections, which has now been fixed. The Road District bid notice has been published, and Mr. McClintock anticipated that there would be two or three bids.
7. COMMITTEE REPORTS:
 A. Finance and Administration: There had not been a meeting.
 B. Infrastructure Planning: There had not been a meeting.
 C. Parks and Recreation: Councilor Eder noted a correction to the spelling of John Niles’ name. Regarding the Keady Wayside handrail, Mr. McClintock noted that Job Corps Masonry department will not do the repair. He has left a message for the Job Corps Building department, and if there was no response, Public Works will take care of it. Councilor Woodruff offered to contact Mr. Chin, as he may be willing to do the repair if the City could pay for the materials.
 D. Traffic Safety: Councilor Welch noted that a meeting has been scheduled in June to meet with the Sheriff for an annual review and discussion about goals. This would be a 4:00 p.m. meeting, and he would welcome thoughts from other Council members about topics.
 E. Economic Development Committee: The minutes from their April 8 meeting were in the packet materials. Councilor Woodruff noted that the Lions Club wants to donate a gazebo to the City, and it had been suggested that either Keady Wayside or Meridian Park might be appropriate. Mayor Beckstead reported that the recent Economic Development Alliance meeting in Yachats was productive, and the next meeting has been set for May 29 at 10:00 at the Yachats Commons.
 F. Community Youth Report: Mayor Beckstead noted that a representative was unavailable, but there was a lot of activity with the prom and the Beachcomber Days Court.
