The Madison City Commission will start its Monday meeting with a report from the Lake County emergency management director at 5:30 p.m. in the commissioners' room at City Hall.
Don Thomson, county emergency management director, will present Lake County's multi-hazard mitigation/pre-disaster mitigation plan. After the presentation, the commissioners will consider giving their approval to the proposal.
Before the regular city commission meeting, the commissioners will hold at 4:30 p.m. a supervisors' meeting at the municipal animal shelter.
Also during the meeting, the commissioners will consider approving a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency disagreeing with the agency's opposition to an environmental plan proposed for a coal-fired electric generation plant near Wheatland, Wyo.
Heartland Consumers Power District, a supplier of electricity to Madison's municipal utility, is part owner of the Laramie River Station plant. HCPD officials believe that the added investment backed by the EPA would provide only marginal benefits.
The commissioners will consider a right of way application submitted by Dakota State University. DSU has proposed installing drain tile to drain surface water from low-lying areas near the college's football practice fields.
At the end of the regular meeting, the commissioners have scheduled an executive session to discuss two topics -- consulting with legal counsel about proposed or pending litigation or contract matters and preparing for contract negotiations or negotiating with employees.
After the regular meeting is closed, the commissioners will hold 2014 budget hearings with municipal personnel.
