The Granite Falls City Council had an abbreviated meeting Monday night due to inclement weather.

Cathy Anderson approached the council to request a preliminary report for adding a utility installation project to an unbuilt street called Barber Circle, near the cul de sac Daniel Drive. There has been interest in building there. This report will explore potential costs and assess if the work could be done in stages. This actually will update a report from 10 years ago when this was first considered. The report will be presented at the March 19th meeting.
