WILLMAR — The Willmar City Council will for sure have one meeting next week, with the possibility of holding two.

The regular meeting of the council will start at 6 p.m. Monday in the boardroom of the Kandiyohi County Health and Human Services Building.

On the agenda for that meeting is the consideration of setting an interview with a new, and as of yet, unidentified city administrator finalist, for 7 p.m. Tuesday. If that motion passes, the council will meet in a special meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, again at the HHS building, to interview the finalist and perhaps consider starting negotiations of an employment offer with them.

Also on the agenda for Monday's regular meeting is a public hearing on and consideration of amending the Surface Water Management Ordinance to add vegetative materials, chemicals, petroleum-based products and materials used for ice and snow removal as items that are not allowed to be discharged into the city's storm drain system.

The council will consider rescinding the declaration of a local emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic, along with deciding whether to extend the emergency ordinance allowing commercial businesses to use public property in front of their establishments for things like outdoor dining.
