City councilors should make quick work of Tuesday’s regular city council meeting as only two items lay on the agenda.

Councilors will first be considering approval of a resolution establishing the filing period and setting a date for the general election for the office of councilman ward one (1) and ward two (2) in Duncan.

In the resolution, the filing period for these offices will begin on Feb. 7, 2011, and end on Feb. 9, 2011. Also, according to the resolution, the general election would be held on April 5, 2011.

The council will also be considering a resolution setting the date for Halloween in Duncan. According to a memo released by city manager Jim Frieda, the city of Duncan receives calls every year from people wanting to know what the date is for trick-or-treating. If passed, this resolution would set this event on a permanent basis so it will not have to be considered every year.

The consent agenda is as follows:

  • Minutes of October 12, 2010
  • Purchase Order List of Claims.
  • Approval of issuance of November, 2010 monthly blanket purchase orders as required by OS 62 § 310.8.
  • WW Builders Pay Request No. 1 in the total amount of $72,521.10 for services rendered on the Concrete Improvements 2010 Project.
