appreciate and encourage public participation.  For regular agenda

allowed for comments.  Citizens wishing to comment on business which is
not on the agenda will be provided the opportunity to do so as item
number 2 after the Consent Agenda.  If you plan to address the Council,

been prepared between the City and the Thompsons outlining conditions to

Bids were opened on Tuesday, March 1, 2005 for the Moscow Downtown

Hall Sidewalks) $35,431.50; Alternate #3 (Police Station Sidewalks)
$43,099; total cost $628,338.50.  The grant funding available for the

Development in the amount of $467,008.  The alternates shall not be
executed with this contract.  Reviewed by the Public Works/Finance
