During the city council meeting Aug. 12, council members approved three items, including the Hispanic State Softball Tournament to be held at Lions Park beginning Aug. 24. Council member Charles Garcia organizes the tournament and abstained from the vote, but remaining voters approved the usage of the park unanimously.
Parks and Recreation Coordinator Molly Klippert said city workers would set up the park the day before the tournament and that Garcia and other event organizers are expected to pay fees for this service along with extra trash cans, portable toilets and access for the concession stand. The event is expected to draw 150 to 500 attendees and the city will also provide two workers to be on hand both days of the tournament.
The council also unanimously approved an addendum to a contract with Code Publishing Co. to provide a comprehensive legal review of the city's municipal code. Interim city clerk Nacelle Heuslein said the company will provide the city with a written report within the next six months that is intended to allow the city to make updates or revisions to ordinances.
Heuslein also sought approval of a new online tool provided by the same company mentioned above to allow citizens, council members and city administrators to access PDF files of ordinances through the Othello municipal code. The company will charge $75 an hour to set up the new links in the code and then another $75 fee each year to host them on their servers.
"This should be helpful to citizens (since) you'll be able to look at it in one spot," Heuslein said, adding that the fees the company charges are reasonable in her opinion.
Finally, Othello Chamber of Commerce President Shawn Logan spoke on behalf of Arvind Grewal to invite council members to a ribbon-cutting event for Grewal's new business. Grewal and the WaterHole, located at 1892 Cunningham Road, will host the event at around lunchtime Aug. 21.
"He plans to put on quite a show for his new business here in Othello," Logan said about Grewal's plan for the event.
