The Council adopted a number of resolutions including Ordinances, Fiscal Year (October 1 - September 30), Work Sessions and Regular Meeting Schedules  (2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 5pm and 7pm, respectively).

The Council declared its intent to collect Local Option Sales Tax, approved accepting Tax Anticipation Note from Iberia Bank, and gave authority to the Interim City Manager to establish Bank Account.
