An audio issue prompted the Salina City Commission to end its Monday meeting before any business was dealt with, and to instead reschedule a special meeting for Wednesday.
Monday was supposed to be the first City Commission meeting conducted via telephone conference. The meeting was also scheduled to be viewed on Salina Media Connection via Cox Cable Channel 20 or online at www.salinatv.org
The teleconference portion of the meeting worked fine. There were audio issues with the Salina Media Connection video feed, though. After about 45 minutes of unsuccessful attempts to fix it, the meeting was adjourned. It has been rescheduled for Wednesday afternoon at 4:00.
Commissioners Monday, among other things, were to have considered ways to save money in the budget in light of the global pandemic. Those same issues will now be considered on Wednesday
Commissioners Wednesday will consider:
- Canceling the 2020 Smoky Hill River Festival
- Postponing improvements at the East Crawford Recreation Area, and the Bill Burke Baseball and Softball Improvement Project
- Postpone new commitments or expenses associated with the River Renewal Project
- Postpone wastewater treatment plant upgrades
