The Public Safety Committee of Huntington City Council has recommend an increase in municipal court costs from the current $15.00. The action has been approved unanimously by the committee and will help support the municipal court too.

In addition, Carol Polan and Jennifer Wheeler discussed possible solutions to "serious problems " with the  deer population on the southside.

Ms. Polan raised the possibility of allowing archery based hunting subject to more study.

Wheeler said, "I"m not a hunter, but as a general premise we have to preserve the safety of the neighborhood."  She recounted numerous deer versus vehicle incidents including one that interrupted a 5K run.

No action was taken.
