• Approved a new fire district contract for year 2018. A clause stating yearly 3 percent interest to contributions from the township or the village was removed, City Manager Jack Haney said.
• Appointed Terry Coons to the Civil Service Commission to fill the unexpired vacancy by the late Tom Borders. Coons will serve immediately and the term will expire Dec. 31, 2018.
• Denied a local shop’s request to distribute medical marijuana. With the opioid epidemic, Mayor Lyle Waddell said the distribution of marijuana is not something the council wanted to be a part of.
