The following is the areas that will be resurfaced: Lytle Road and North Road at Trade Square East; Harrison Street and Adams Street Bridge; and Market Street Bridge and Miami Shores.

Another resolution is to seek bids for an articulating compact mower for the Cemetery Department not to exceed $81,000.
