By Katy Korkos

Council approved four items on Tuesday’s consent agenda with one 4-to-0 vote, including the approval of a contract with California Skateparks to design and build a skate park in front of Mesa Public Library, in the amount of $500,275. Council had reaffirmed its support for the skate park location at the Feb. 12 meeting. The site plan for the park must still go to the planning and zoning commission for approval, although the location itself is not in question.Community Services Director Stephani Johnson said in the agenda document she prepared for council that the public would have an opportunity to review and comment on the design as it is developed.Council Chair Jim Hall added that Councilor Jim West was in the hospital, Councilor Michael Wheeler was on travel and Councilor Fran Berting, who was also not feeling well, would be a little late but was on her way. Berting arrived shortly after the consent agenda was passed.
