Columbus City Council set to meet this upcoming Monday

City counciMEETING

Proclamations, appointments, public hearings and resolutions take up much of the Columbus City Council's agenda for its next meeting.

The Council is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20, 2023, in its Chamber/the Community Room on the third floor of the Columbus Community Building, 2500 14th St.


Columbus Mayor Jim Bulkley is expected to sign a proclamation for Columbus to recognize and celebrate "Small Business Saturday" on Saturday, Nov. 25, 2023. Small Business Saturday is an annual event that takes place on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. First observed in 2010, "Small Business Saturday" has become an important day to show appreciation for the small businesses that are an important part of the community.

A proclamation will also be read and signed honoring outgoing Columbus City Council President Beth Augustine Schulte's 14 years of service on the council. Augustine-Schulte previously announced her plans to step down from the council as she and her husband will be relocating into a new home outside of the First Ward she represents.

“Having the opportunity to be of service to people and the community as a whole has been one of my favorite things about being on the City Council. I have really enjoyed being that liaison between citizens and City staff, helping people and addressing their concerns,” Augustine-Schulte said. “This was not easy because I have loved it …”

The Council will consider the appointment of Logan Bronson to the Board of Airport Commissioners on a three-year term and the reappointment of Robert F. Cruise to the same board for another three-year term. The government body is also expected to appoint Christian Jones as a firefighter/EMT/hazmat tech. 


The Council will go through several public hearings and then ultimately decide to approve or deny corresponding resolutions. The topics that will be considered during this portion of the meeting include bringing certain areas into the corporate city limits, approving a special use permit; the request of the Antique Tractor and Gas Engines Show to camp overnight in Pawnee Park Friday, June 7, 2024, and Saturday, June 8, 2024; and approving an interlocal agreement with Platte, Butler, Colfax and Polk counties for the Highway 30/64 connector project.
