The Ledge Amp Project Update and Programming Discussion

Jeff Oertel of Oertel Architects and Jeff Reiter of Custom Builders will both be present along with staff to discuss the status of The Ledge.  They would also would like to discuss construction schedule, and the plans with fencing and gates.  In addition, staff would like to discuss the potential programming and COVID19 implications that impact the facility and events.

Splash Pad COIV19 Requirements for Opening

Staff would like to discuss with the City Council the requirements the City will need to meet for COVID19 to open the splash pad up.  Given our splash pad is a recycled water system, we have additional requirements and permits necessary to obtain before opening that are different than other splash pads in the area.  We would like to discuss these requirements and determine a pan moving forward.

Public Input

The City Council provides members of the public an opportunity to address the City Council with items they believe are relevant to the City of Waite Park.  Each member of the public will be allowed up to 2 minutes to speak.  City Council will not engage during this time and no action should be expected at this time.  The City Council can determine if further follow up, discussion, or action is needed on any item brought up by members of the public.  During the regular scheduled meeting that will follow the public input, the Mayor will summarize the items discussed during the public input and ask the City Council whether they desire to have any follow up on items discussed during the public input. The City Council could choose to place the item on a future work session or city council agenda, or they could direct staff to research or follow up on any item discussed.
