The Winslow City Council met on Tuesday and held a special session to discuss neighborhood sidewalks, which was followed by the regular meeting.

During discussion of Winslow Summer Nights, Lawrence Kenna noted that the program was a huge success last summer largely because of the involvement and participation of many, including the city. He asked that the city help again this year, and after considerable discussion, the council voted to sponsor the events.

A request from the Chamber of Commerce to use city property and assistance with parking and traffic control for a circus to be held on April 8 was approved. The circus was formerly sponsored by the Winslow Lions Club, which no longer exists. The circus will be held on a vacant lot near the Chamber of Commerce building.

A resolution was adopted authorizing the renewal of the city’s membership in the Rural Arizona Group Health Trust.

The consent calendar was adopted, giving approval of the check register and minutes of the March 8 council meetings.

April was proclaimed as Child Abuse Prevention Month and as Fair Housing Month.

After the regular meeting, the council met as the Winslow Housing Authority and adopted a pair of resolutions suggested by Public Housing Director Jesse Fernandez.
