The Alliance City Council, with newly sworn in members Mike Dafney (elected mayor) and Annora Bentley, concluded tonight's (Dec. 4) meeting with an executive session to discuss "a few date options" to offer the Alliance School Board which will work to have a joint meeting to discuss a resolution to the unresolved track issues as they relate to City property and utility services. The Council packet included a summary statement outlining the issues along with the history. Council included the deputy city manager and the City's legal council in the closed session.
Council voted to enter executive session at 7:42 and resumed open session at 7:53 p.m. with no action taken before adjourning.
Setting a joint meeting was not on the school board's agenda at their regular meeting Dec. 3. Friday morning (Dec. 7) Alliance Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Troy Unzicker said he had not heard from City Manager Rick Kuckkahn since before Tuesday's meeting when Kuckkahn said council would be discussing dates for a joint meeting. Unzicker said the discussion of a joint meeting would not be on the Dec. 17 agenda without a proposal from the City.
