Approved by a vote of 4-2 was Resolution 12-035 to declare necessity for a levy in excess of the 10-mill limitation. Utica Mayor Lester Grennell asked the item be approved under suspension of the three-reading rule so that the paperwork can be sent to the county auditor for certification. Voting for the resolution were John Rodeniser, John Davison, Clarence Conley and James Quinif; while voting against it were John Stone and Jack Raines. Grennell stated that funds received from the levy would go into the general fund and be earmarked for street lighting and paving.

Approved under suspension of the three-reading rule was Ordinance 13-001 adopting a temporary revenue budget for the year 2013. Grennell explained that this item is not permanent when adopted and that the permanent budget will not come out until March. Also approved was Ordinance 13-002 for the 2013 temporary appropriations.

Receiving a first reading were Ordinance 12-033 approving an amended plat of the Honeybrook Green subdivision and accepting the dedicated streets in the plat; Ordinance 12-034 accepting a conveyance of reserves for the Honeybrook Green subdivision; and Resolution 12-036 placing on the May ballot a levy in excess of the 10-mill limitation for street lights and paving.
