Jeff Marsters, Don Nelson and Max Weaver all said their goodbyes to the Mason City City Council Tuesday night.

All three were awarded certificates for their service to the community. Mayor Eric Bookmeyer acknowledged that the three out-going council members and himself “did not always see eye-to-eye on many issues,” but that he never doubted that they always had the best interests of Mason City as their goal.

In other business, Mayor Bookmeyer mentioned the Blue Zone initiative that Mason City is involved in. He said that there will be a walk held on Thursday, December 22 where photos will be taken to submit to the Blue Zones Committee that decides if Mason City will become a Blue Zone Community. He asked citizens to meet at the Music Man Square at noon and wear blue. Two walks will be held, a 1K or 2K.

The city awarded a certificate to a young lady, Andrea Kauffman for being named America’s Homecoming Queen. (See video.)

Councilman Travis Hickey brought forward an initiative to clean up Mason City’s neighborhoods. He had a slide show with pictures of broken-down or unsightly homes in the community. Staff would be directed to develop a plan by February 7, 2012. That measure passed 5-1 with Max Weaver voting against it.

    No not at all. Gilbert does though. Question him. You may want to rethink what judgement means. He has proven himself with his hate/judgement. Gilbert is no better then the guy he disrespects. Same things he accuses him of he does and he can’t even see it. Gilbert can’t even look him in the eye as he rants on and on about him. A number one prick. Ask his neighbors. Then ask him the same question you asked me.

    Beverly, your remarks are so very offensive and so personal. Are you having a judgement problem?

    Gilbert you are a A number one prick…and know nothing. Talk about inappropriate and out of line.You are worse then anyone and you have no idea what it takes to be even a man. You think you are smart as if everyone doesn’t know who you hate. At last maybe your snotty ass womanly bitching will stop since your hero is gone. Good luck! You are so ornery why do like a drunken mayor and potentially hazerdous business poluting your so you think nice yard?
