• Approved closing the 1400 block of 13th Street during the Cheese Days Festival. Patrick Doyle of Bullet's Restaurant, 1301 15th Ave., and Gary Olson, president of Minhas Craft Brewery, which occupies the lots across from Bullet's on 13th Street, requested the street closing. Doyle also submitted letters of support from other nearby businesses. Doyle and Olson said the area has become congested in past Cheese Days years and would be safer if closed. Doyle intends to erect a fence, around the area, about 44 feet by 82 feet, adjacent to Bullet's. People will still be able to pass by the fenced in area via the grass terrace on the north side of the street. The Cheese Days Committee has agreed to reroute its trolley, Doyle said. Fire Chief Daryl Rausch also approved closing the lot because the fire department still has access to both sides of the block.

• Recommended the Common Council approve special events for Southern Wisconsin/Northern Illinois Fire Rescue Association's Monroe Fire School, Aug. 13 to 15 at the MERIT Center and Green County Fairgrounds; Monroe Main Street Maxwell Street Days, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Aug. 6 and 7, in downtown Monroe; Monroe Optimist Club Skateboard Event, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 7 at the skateboard park in Honey Creek Park; and Crossroads Community Church's Movie in the Park, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Aug. 13 at the band shelter in Twining Park.
