Delta City Council approved several mutually beneficial agreements with residents and/or organizations at its June 5 meeting. Most of the agreements were presented to council by public works and utilities director Betsy Suerth.
Delta City Council considered requests from two youth groups at its June 5 meeting.
Elyse Casselberry, Delta County community and economic development director, requested the appointment of six Delta High School students to the youth council for the upcoming school year.
At the request of council member Kevin Carlson, the council released the $300 budgeted for Delta High School grad night festivities, and agreed in principle to donate $200 to each of the Destination Imagination teams headed to globals later this month. Since the expenditure was not listed in the agenda, city attorney David McConaughy suggested the matter be tabled until a special meeting May 8.
Reorganization was the theme of the April 17 meeting of the Delta City Council. Kevin Carlson was sworn into office and outgoing council members Ed Sisson and Bill Raley were recognized for their service to the community.
At the conclusion of his final meeting as a member of the Delta City Council, Bill Raley said it's time for the younger residents of the city to step into leadership roles. Those two young leaders are apparently city council candidates Nathan Clay and Kevin Carlson.

The Delta City Council business meeting June 20 began with the appointment of Mary Cooper to fill a vacancy on the Planning Commission. Cooper served as a councilmember for 11-plus years. She replaces Gerald Roberts who was recently elected to city council.
Mary Cooper brushed tears from her eyes as she reflected on her tenure as a Delta city councilmember. Cooper was appointed to the post in 2005, then twice elected to subsequent four-year terms. Term limits prohibited her from running for re-election this year.
Delta City Council member Ray Penick said this week he will not be seeking another term in office, bringing to three the number of vacant seats to be filled in the upcoming municipal election.
The other two seats are held by Mary Cooper and Robert Jurca, both of whom are term limited.
