It was a routine monthly meeting last Thursday at City Hall for the Jamestown City Council as they accepted the second reading of the amended budget for the 2008-09 fiscal year and the second reading of the budget for the 09-10 fiscal year.
In other happenings at the meeting:
• Mayor Brooks Bates also welcomed five businesses to Jamestown. The Jamestown Fun Center, the Barbecue Place, Manner's Cafe and Soda Shop, a new HVAC business opened by Rick Neff and Advanced Technical Marketing Corp. have all opened their doors within city limits since the last council meeting.
• Bates also announced that the park board had purchased two new "state-of-the-art" basketball goals for just under $4,000 for use at the Jamestown City Park.
"I'm really interested in the park," Bates said. "It has made a lot of progress."
• The council went into a 20-minute executive session to discuss the purchase of property but when the council returned to regular session, Mayor Bates announced that no action had been taken in the closed session.
