January Meeting Recap: City Council Meet & Greet

SCCA Jan 2016 meeting at Chef Shack

The January SCCA meeting featured Council Member Cam Gordon and Marcela Sotela, aide to CM Abdi Warsame, taking questions from members about a wide range of city issues. CM Warsame was unable to attend due to the birth of his new daughter, but will come of the February meeting instead. Topics of discussion included the Working Families Agenda sick leave policies, the proposed Bring-Your-Own-Bag ordinance, new streamlined licensing for food trucks to attend special events, a new ordinance to support micro food processors, and concerns about graffiti and the damage it does to our communities. Marcela and Cam both highlighted what a diverse community Seward is with deeply engaged members. Chef Shack owners Lisa Carlson and Carrie Summers gave a short overview of their business, which includes a fleet of food trucks and a second restaurant in Bay City, WI. They work with many local farmers and providers to source ingredients for their menu. They served up a delicious lunch of tacos, enchiladas and salad for the 17 members present. The conversation was engaging enough that nearly everyone stayed a full half hour past the official end time of the meeting. Thank you to everyone who came!
