Mayor Bohle called the Cresco City Council special meeting to order on May 20, 2019, at 6:00 pm at the Cresco Theatre. Council Members Brenno, McCarville, Fortune, Bouska and Carman were present. No council members were absent.
Theatre Manager Wendy Lickteig led a tour of the Theatre. They discussed the status of the front wall leak and where the water had been coming in. The seats were inspected showing the wear and discomfort. They discussed the need to replace the flooring underneath and address potential subfloor issues when seats are replaced. They also looked at the cracking in the floor near the exit door to the ramp.
The recently upgraded electrical projects were reviewed. Lickteig showed them the new PA system and discussed the benefits it adds to the building and how it has been used so far. A lengthy discussion ensued about the safety of the newer stairs from the green room to the stage. The liability and danger they present were a concern.
She pointed out many of the extensive remodeling and updates that have been made to Champlin Hall. Many of the improvements were done by the Theatre Commission (and spouses) volunteering their time to perform the work.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:35 pm. The next regular Cresco City Council meeting will be May 20, 2019 at 7:00 pm at Cresco City Hall.
