Mayor Pam Soseman talks bike safety rodeo, city council meeting
Mayor Pam Soseman says 31 young riders showed up for the Chance Niles Memorial Bicycle Safety Rodeo this past Saturday. The event included a presentation from the Denison Police Department along with a safety check of their bike and helmet. Mayor Soseman says volunteers set up multiple stations for riders to practice what they learned.
"They had to drive to a stop sign and stop and get off their bike. They were taught to look left, then right, and then left again. In the final station, they had to weave in and out of the pylons," said Mayor Soseman. "Very well-received. We even had one little boy, I think he was two his mom said, come with his sit-and-scoot. Absolutely delightful to work with and they were very excited. The bikes and the helmets were given away at Market in the Park."
She says Market in the Park had a great turnout for their movie on Saturday night as well.
Mayor Soseman also discussed the annual report that Auditor of State Rob Sand released last week.
"We'll give our city clerk time to respond and she will," said Mayor Soseman. "Some of those are the same findings every year and it has to do with the size of our office basically."
She says the city hopes to make quick work of another long council meeting agenda this week.
"It looks like it has been rearranged a bit. Not near as lengthy as the last meeting which was over four hours," said Mayor Soseman. "I think we're going to finalize the agreement with Ignite. We're going to look at maybe putting some maintenance funds into street-scape and the bio-retention cells. Various small things like that. We do have a closed session within there. So hopefully all will go well."
Tuesday’s meeting begins at 5 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall.
