AGENDA ITEM NO. 5: Presentation by Shawna Turner representing Sustainable Shawnee.
(Deferred from the June 1, 2009 meeting)
Shawna Turner spoke of the need for a committee to research topics related to projects the commission might be interested in pursuing or needed to pursue requiring considerable research time. This committee could be made up of several different areas of the community. Research could lead to the committee bringing the top options on a particular project back to the commission for their consideration.
After discussion by the commission regarding the structure of the committee, such as appointment of members, terms, responsibilities, and number of members, it was determined the mayor should work with Shawna Turner and others to set the requirements for such a committee. The concept would be brought back to the commission at the next meeting to confirm a committee structure and then work on selection of members.

City Planning Director Justin Erickson gave a brief explanation of the changes made by using the 2006 Edition of the International Property Maintenance Code. These changes take care of inconsistencies on current code and put the City on firmer ground in some of our other ordinances by cleaning up any overlapping entries.
No others came forward to speak and the public hearing was closed.
Ordinance No. 2403NS was introduced and the title read aloud.

AGENDA ITEM NO. 10: New Business (Any matter not known about or which could not have been reasonably foreseen prior to the posting of the agenda)
There was no New Business.
AGENDA ITEM NO. 11: Administrative Reports
Under Administrative Reports, City Engineer John Krywicki reported on the Kickapoo Street project. Letters of offers have been signed on 47 of the 81 parcels. O G & E estimates it will take 120 days to move utilities after notice to proceed.
Planning Director Justin Erickson reported on school land lake properties. The city sub-leases 28 lots controlled by the school land commission. These lots are leased to individuals as a pass through with no additional fees collected by the city to cover any administrative fees, such as inspections. The City of Shawnee’s leases for these properties expire December 31, 2009. It is expected that the State Land Commission will increase the amount of the leases at renewal. The current lease holders would prefer to lease directly from the land commission. This property is in the city limits and would still be required to comply with city ordinances. The City of Shawnee would lose some control but the lake would still be protected.
Commissioner Sims commented septic inspections are done at renewal time so some way to check these would have to be put in place. Also, he would like to look at extending the length of leases on city owned property.
Mr. Erickson advised he will bring more information back at a future meeting, probably in July.
Mike Jackson, Expo Center Operations Manager, reported on a publication, Barrel Horse News, that list the Expo Center as one of 13 destinations for attending barrel racing events. This is a very widely read publication and a great achievement for the Expo Center. He also reported the painting of the “orange building” started today. Entries for the International Finals Youth Rodeo, to be held July 13-18, are up by 70 contestants from last year. They expect a good turnout for the event.
AGENDA ITEM NO. 14: Commissioners Comments
Commissioner Sims announced a T-shirt design contest being held at the library for “Red, White and Blue Celebration”. The winning design will be produced on T-shirts for sale by the Veteran’s groups and all proceeds will go to the Veterans’ Memorial Park. He also reported on a “Summer Social” swim to be held June 23 from 4 to 8 p.m.
Mayor Peterson thanked Carl Holt for representing the City of Shawnee at a VFW Ladies Auxiliary meeting. She also announced the commission representatives to the Regional Park committee are now James Harrod, Frank Sims, and John Winterringer. Commissioner Harrod stated this committee will be meeting again in the next few days.
A Juneteenth celebration dinner will be held on Friday, June 19 at 6:00 p.m.
AGENDA ITEM NO. 15: Adjournment
