REPORTS: Belinda Coulter, a certified public accountant with Taylor, Polson & Co., presented the annual audit of the city’s financial report for fiscal year ending June 30, 2013.

ACTIONS: The council members present unanimously approved the following: Jan. 27 meeting minutes; acceptance of the audit report, and municipal order in conjunction with Barren County judge-executive appointing Jason Escamilla to the Glasgow- Barren County Tourist and Convention Commission to fill the unexpired term of Darren Geary that ends June 30, 2015.

ATTENDANCE: Council members Sheila Oliver and Karalee Oldenkamp were absent.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Glasgow City Hall will be closed Monday in observance of Presidents Day. At the Plaza Theatre, the Popcorn & a Movie series’ upcoming showings are: “Sleepless in Seattle” on Friday and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” on Feb. 21. The Plaza will also host a drop-in event at which more information will be available about the possibility of having a designated cultural district, and those interested in supporting the idea may sign a petition to express that support.

Parks and Recreation will host Let Loose with Lennie at 6 p.m. on Valentine’s Day to provide a place for the kids to enjoy activities while the parents are enjoying the holiday.
