At Tuesday's Fulton City Council meeting, the council will hear several requests about upcoming events.

Katie Boland will be representing the Annual Senior Car Parade. This event will be Friday, May 19 at 4 p.m. The route for the parade will begin at William Woods University, heading south on Court Street and finishing at Memorial Park. Bill Ladwig, Fulton Police Chief, reviewed and approved the request prior to the meeting.

Richard Vaughn will be representing VFW Post 2657, who is seeking financial support for the annual Fourth of July Fireworks Display.

Heather and Becky Jungermann, co-chairs of the Fulton Street Fair Committee, will be at the meeting to request permission for the street fair. They are seeking permission for the event to be June 23-24 in the downtown area.

Brice Walther and April Redman, CFO of Callaway Cares, will introduce themselves to the council and explain more about the non-profit organization.

The council will discuss one resolution. This resolution would allow the mayor to execute a contract with the House Authority of Fulton. This contract is for supplemental community police services.

Two ordinances will be first read at the meeting.

The first ordinance would reclassify a tract of land located at 303 Claymine Drive. It is currently zoned as R-1 residential. The ordinance would reclassify it to C-2 commercial.

A public hearing will also be held at the beginning of the meeting for this rezoning.

The other ordinance would amend the "finances, purchasing, and bid procedures" of the Fulton City Code. The ordinance would add "the accepting of donations, gifts and sponsorships."

The meeting will begin on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
