The council meeting is underway.

He began with "Good and gracious God we give thanks for drawing us together here in Lodi," Ware said.

Larry Mayor Hansen also gave out his Mayor's Community Service Award. His first award went to Sally Snyde, who is the president of the World of Wonders Museum.

"I just believe the youth of our community is a precious commodity," Hansen said. "This is a way for them to learn about science in a fun innovative way.

The other recipient was Nancy Alumbaugh, who is the founder and treasurer of People Assisting Lodi Shelter.

Hansen said the shelter provides a vital service to the community in protecting animal's lives. He also recounted when his wife, Linda, and Alumbaugh schemed to get him to adopt a cat. After going inside to look at the Persian, the cat, which they named Truffles, jumped on his lap and started purring.

Also, during public comment, Ken Owen, founder of Christian Community Concerns, presented his 'Keep Christ in Christmas' campaign to council. Ross Farrow, our religion reporter, wrote a story on Saturday about Owen's idea
