A light agenda and no area citizens in attendance made for an efficient Perham City Council meeting on Jan. 14, 2019 at Perham City Hall. After the call to order and Pledge of Allegiance Mayor Timothy Meehl and Council Members Fred Lehmkuhl and Brad Schmidt took their oath of office led by City Manager Jonathan Smith.

City Engineer Jade Berube gave his monthly update and said County Road 8 will be closed until May 2019. Design is also underway on the Second Avenue Southwest rehabilitation project with the goal of finalizing plans and specifications before the council meeting in February.

The council held a public hearing regarding a request from Zorbaz on Little Pine Lake to obtain the following liquor licenses: On-Sale Intoxicating Liquor License, Sunday License, and 2 AM License. The council approved the request after no public comments.
