Commissioner Winterringer commented on the Municipal Pool not being open on July 4. He was very disappointed to see it was closed.

Mayor Peterson reported the parade and celebration in the Veterans Memorial Park to dedicate the donated helicopter was very nice and thanked the military groups for their work in putting this together. She and Commissioner Harrod also thanked the staff for their contribution to set-up and traffic control.
Mayor Peterson then commented on questions concerning fire rates on property inside/outside the city limits. She asked Chief Gibson to comment. Chief Gibson explained there had been no change in the response areas for the department for the last 11 years. ISO rating for the City of Shawnee is a 4, on a scale of 1-10, 1 being best. Outside the city limits the rating is higher which may cause a change in insurance rates.
