There seems to be a problem getting access to the latest council meeting online so we have included it here for your perusal.
(We normally dont do this and suggest the Beacon site for such purposes, but at the time of this posting there was no access, and there were some important items within, so we have posted it here until it is resolved at the Beacon website.)
