A new council term brought with it an old issue. At the July 1st meeting, Mayor Sam Kooiker and council members starting their new terms were sworn in. According to a KOTA news story, Jerry Wright was chosen as council president, with Amanda Scott as council vice-president. Among the first issues faced was that of keeping chickens in the city. The City Council heard the report, but no action was taken.
