Mayor Donald Verschelde called the regular city council meeting to order.

Those present were Kim Jelen, Pat Vlaminck, Don Verschelde, Bonnie Olson and Judy Verschelde.

Also present were Larry Stoks, Mary Wente, Linda Hennen and Jacob Tetrick.

A motion was made by Kim Jelen, seconded by Pat Vlaminck to approve the minutes of the March 3, 2008 City Council meeting. All in favor, no one opposed.

Linda Hennen was present to inquire about the city mowing.

Jacob Tetrick was present to inquire about the city mowing.

The bids for the city mowing were read and approved.

A discussion was held on serving food at any event. Any group within the city of Porter that is serving food or beverages must obtain a health permit PRIOR to the event. If the city is allowing the event to occur, and allows non-permitted persons or groups to serve food or beverages, the city is considered liable if a food-borne illness outbreak occurs. By allowing only permitted persons or groups to prepare and serve food at these celebrations it transfers the responsibility from the city to the vendor. Permit applications can be obtained from Don Verschelde.

Mary Wente was present to inquire about city property.

A motion was made by Kim Jelen, seconded by Pat Vlaminck to approve a building permit to Mary Wente for a 16 x 9 smoking room.

A motion was made by Pat Vlaminck, seconded by Kim Jelen to pay the bills as read. All in favor, no one opposed.
