expects any council member to provide written notice at least 24 hours in
advance if they are not able to attend a meeting.

starting January 1, 2018. She then said

make the appointments. She said they would have the first Council meeting of
the year, January 1 at 9:00 a.m.
She went on to thank Mrs. Boock for doing a good job at the last two
meetings, when she could not attend. She
said she thought the town and the starbursts all look really nice.
