Council member Jane Lumm thinks the city should do more than add three positions in police services, so she will request a total of five new positions.  Lumm will also again propose the return of street-side leaf and christmas tree pick-ups.  

Council Member Christopher Taylor is introducing a proposal for a community facing energy efficiency program.  

Chuck Warpehoski is urging for additional funding for substance abuse treatment and prevention.
