Stewart City Council approves Girl Scout butterfly garden request

The Stewart City Council gave permission to the Stewart-Brownton Girl Scouts to start a butterfly garden on city-owned property at its June 9 meeting.
The garden will be located on Powers Street, just east of the former Red Owl grocery building.
The troop presented the City Council with a schematic drawing of its plans, and the Council voted unanimously to allow the project.
In other business, the City Council:
• Agreed to begin advertising for a 20-hour-per-week deputy city clerk.
• Approved two special event outdoor liquor licenses for Cactus Jack’s II for a bean bag tournament Saturday, June 21, and Sunday, June 22.
• Approved its roster of election judges, which includes City Clerk Ronda Huls; Joe Maiers and Lucy Sadergaski, head judges; and Virgene Roepke, Maria Rubio, Louise Jaeger, Marlene Streich, Carol Maiers, Norma Syverson, Linda Werner, Shirley Kirchoff and Guadalupe Rubio.
