City of Isanti dogs, along with their owners, will soon get a few new amenities to enjoy at the new dog park, thanks to a donation from the Rotary Club of Cambridge-Isanti.
During the Nov. 5 city council meeting, the city of Isanti accepted the donations from Rotary member Jackie Moen in the amount of $1,200, which will be used to purchase agility equipment, plus an all-season bench, which Moen said has already been purchased and awaiting installation.
“We found ourselves with extra funding in our budget,” Moen told the council. “So I connected with (Parks, Recreation and Culture manager) Jenny Garvey and thought, ‘What can we do with this?’ And she thought there could be good use for equipment in the park.”
Council registers city logo
Based on confusion expressed by some residents over whether or not a Facebook page that uses a photo of the Isanti water tower is an official page of the city of Isanti, the council approved amending the city code to add that people wishing to use the city’s logo – either with or without the slogan “A community for generations” – must get advance approval from the city.
“Now that we have our registration on our logo,” city administrator Josi Wood said, “we can have it as an ordinance we can enforce if anyone was using our logo in a manner that is not in the best interest of the city. This would allow us to tell them they are not allowed to use it without our prior permission.”
“It is a little bit of a problem,” mayor Jeff Johnson said. “So we are just trying to nip it in the bud.”
Johnson appointed to EDA
Isanti community member Clark Johnson was appointed to the City of Isanti’s Economic Development Authority following a brief interview in which he answered questions regarding his background and experience.
