Ÿ Accepted three balancing change orders for the Maple City Greenway-Fidler Pond, Dickerson Landing phase two and the Electric Brew bump-out projects. The Maple City Greenway-Fidler Pond project required more topsoil removal than anticipated, which led to an increase of $14,857.06 for a final contract price of $77,884.56. The Dickerson Landing change order increased the price by $2,252.04 for a total contract price of $177,226.79. The Electric Brew bump-out required additional removal of concrete that was removed from the alleyway due to its poor condition that would not provide a good transition for the new concrete to tie into. The increase to the price was $4,095.89, bringing the total contract price to $13,296.48.

Ÿ Approved and accepted water main and sanitary sewer infrastructure at Keystone RV for maintenance.

Deschene has lost another round in a language fluency dispute, all but ending his bid for office. The tribe's high court on Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014, upheld a ruling from a lower court that said Deschene is not qualified to seek the top elected post because he doesn't speak fluent Navajo.
