On Thursday, the Orangeville City Council discussed a variety of topics at its regularly scheduled meeting.
Andrew Gilson appeared before the council to thank members for the opportunity to do his Eagle Scout project. He passed around pictures of his completed project, which is a new walking path at the Orangeville Welcome Park.
The council discussed a remodel of the city council room. The motion was made to get bids for new carpet, paint and chairs. The motion passed unanimously.
The council also agreed on dates for 2015 celebrations. Orangeville Days will be held July 24-25, 2015. Christmas in the Park is scheduled for Dec. 5, 2015 while the Easter Egg Hunt is tentatively scheduled for April 1, 2015, pending a motion made by the Orangeville Youth City Council.
The council also discussed several future projects to improve the community. These include a new softball field that would be located on the east side of the Mayor’s Park and hiring someone specifically for weed control during the summer. “We want to work on beautifying our city,” said councilman Kent Wilson.
Council members also talked about the need for bathrooms with showers to serve the climbers who frequent the area. Several locations were discussed, but no final decision was made. Mayor Roger Swenson also expressed his wish to have a lighted marquee installed in front of the city building.
