1. Roll Call (The city clerk will call the roll of councilmembers to take attendance.)
2. Agenda Summation (The council president will summarize what is on the agenda.)
3. Approval of Minutes: (If there are minutes from previous meetings to approve, this is when a vote is taken on that.)
No meeting minutes are set for approval.

4A. Councilmembers (Councilmembers can use the time to talk about whatever topics they like.)
4B. The Mayor and City Offices
4B1. Annual Tax Abatement and Economic Development Commission Report
No materials to support this item are included in the city council’s meeting information packet. Here’s the slide deck that was used for the staff presentation to the EDC at its June meeting:
4C. Council Committees (Reports from council committees are given during this time.)
This is the first of two chances for public commentary on items not on the agenda. The 20-minute time limit for each part of Section 4 applies to this section, too. Speakers at the public mic are normally allowed five minutes. That time can be reduced by the chair of the meeting if a lot of people want to speak. For people present in council chambers, they will be invited to approach the public mic and sign in. For people attending via the Zoom connection, they’ll be asked to use the “raise hand” feature on Zoom, and they will be unmuted by staff when it’s their turn to speak. To request an accommodation or for inquiries about accessibility, please call (812) 349-3409 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. Appointments To Boards And Commissions (If there are any recommended appointments by one of the council’s interview committees, this is when they will be moved by a representative of the interview committee and voted on by the full council.)
