8/14/2018: Interesting that Councilman Cyr participated in meeting by phone. Mayor Ardis asked the Councilman if he had questions or what his vote was at the beginning of discussion or vote.
Consent Agenda item 18-236, which was "pulled," was a contract with Change and Innovation Agency, LLC for a 3 day Innovation Academy Training. But the Peoria Innovation Team - which was financed by a grant from Bloomberg Foundation- has an uncertain future since the Bloomberg grant runs out of grant funding soon.
No discussion on CEO Council MOU or the Water Due Diligence - holdup is from CEO Council.
No discussion on EPA feedback on the Combined Sewer Overflow.
Most discussion was about the budget hole. (See PJStar for more information on that.)
