They had Committee Of The Whole in the morning, budget sessions in the afternoon and a regular council meeting in the evening.
We have the council meetings for your viewing here. (sorry no budget session)

Notes for first time visitors:
The slices in the pie charts are actually buttons. Click on one and a new window opens. In that window you will be able to watch the meeting starting from the point where that topic begins.
At the end you will see the two meetings – you can watch them from the beginning here. Or skip to where ever you want of course – most people find the pie slice buttons an easier place to start.

First up is the Committee Of The Whole meeting.

Sock Monkey entertaining at Music In The Park July 3, 2013

There were around 50 people of all ages in the audience and they were very appreciative of John Vere and Curt Garrison, a.k.a. ‘Sock Monkey‘. John and Curt entertained with an acoustic mix of country, bluegrass, contemporary and oldies using guitars and banjo. There was even a passing musician sitting on his scooter/trailer rig on the sidewalk nearby who appeared to be jamming along with an electric guitar. To ‘top if off’ John called out to a Paraglider high overhead, though it’s not likely he was heard. We can only wonder what the view from way up there was like … but you can get a closer view below and an in-person experience every Wednesday evening this summer at 7PM. Music In The Park in Gyro Park in Grand Forks. It might be hot in the daytime but the evenings are nice so come out and Enjoy!
