During Wednesday night's meeting of the Jamesport City Council, Jamesport resident, Gail Ledesma talked about the recommendations. They include the formation of a special road district to capture tax money for the City of Jamesport to be used on street and road maintenance. Also suggested was seeking a block grant to demolish dilapidated structures.

Another comment described Jamesport as a great community with much potential.

Also at the Jamesport City Council meeting, City Clerk, Shelly Page, said Mrs. Ledesma's husband, Ron, asked about progress being made regarding his ongoing annoyance with his neighbor's dogs. City Clerk Page said, after some heated discussion, Ledesma was asked by Mayor Jack Turner to leave the building---which he did. The City Council Wednesday night took no action on that matter.

The Jamesport Council, in February, had agreed to have the City Lawyer do whatever the law allows to stop what was described as annoyance from barking dogs.

In other news from Wednesday night's meeting, Jamesport Community Association President, Amanda Riley, discussed combined effort to clean up around Jamesport
on May 1st. Various organizations are to asked to help. Jamesport City Personnel are expected to provide assistance. Mrs. Riley also talked about a car show to be scheduled
sometime in June. Permission was given for the event, which is expected to use portions of Broadway and possibly Main Streets.

The City of Jamesport is accepting applications for part-time maintenance work this summer. Applications will be accepted at Jamesport City Hall until April 30th, when
a special meeting is to be held to select potential candidates. Interviewing is to begin May 2nd.

Members of the Council have been assigned extra responsibilities—Geoff Eads as Mayor pro-tem, Chris Ford to oversee streets, Freda Garner is to look over finances, and
Rob Murphy is to oversee cemetery needs.
