City Council in favor of EMS plan

Agreement with county would provide extra funds from occupational tax


• Councilor Jim Rutherford said he and Wiese hope to bring a tweaked entertainment ordinance back to the council by the next meeting. The city has opted to make some changes to its current entertainment ordinance — one that has not been updated since the 1980s and is based on a state statute from the 1950s — to help it align better with current city and state alcohol regulations. 
• Councilor Tom Eastham commended those with the city’s parks and recreation department for work being carried out in the outdoor area at Rocky Hollow Park. 
“They’re doing a lot of work ... and I’ve noticed it,” said Eastham. “They’re really putting a lot of work in down there and it looks nice.”
