The consent agenda consisted of council meeting minutes from March 4 and March 11, liquor license renewal for Red Barn Resort and Main Channel Grill, the Treasurer’s report for February, and the transfer of $718.40 from the Trust fund to the General fund to cover playground expenses. A motion was made and seconded to approve that consent agenda without any concerns.
