— Salina City Council’s February meeting was short and sweet.

The meeting began with the mid-year fiscal audit, presented by Violet Kirdendall.

She said the city is within its budget in all areas and in good shape to continue the year. The council reviewed all the line items and any deficits.

Like neighboring cities, Salina voted to approve a contract with BCI Allegiance LLC.

A lease agreement with the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce for the use of the facilities at 101 S. Cherokee St. was approved with little discussion.

The Chamber of Commerce requested more police involvement with the town Easter egg hunt. In the previous year's Easter egg hunt, there were traffic issues which could be cleared up with more police assistance.

The chamber of commerce is considering adding additional parking at the football field, as well as handicap parking. As with previous years, the police department plans to donate to the hunt.

Michael O'Rourke was appointed Flood Plain Administrator with unanimous affirmative votes.

The agenda included a proposal to discuss publishing outstanding warrants and setting the amount of discount to be given if paid during the week of publication. The council voted to withdraw this item from the agenda.

Lou Ella Martin, library director, requested a computer upgrade in her report. The council were in agreement to approve.
