Mayor Ed Mayne advised council he already wrote a letter showing his personal support as mayor, and was looking to include additional council support by way of a formal resolution that could be forwarded and included with the museum’s application.

Mayne’s motion, seconded by Coun. Al Greir, passed unanimously at the last council meeting on Oct. 4.
