After the previous council conducted its final business during a regular voting session, another meeting convened, and the new members were sworn in.
Oberg listed the tasks ahead: dealing with the city's unfunded obligations with the Public Safety Personnel Retirement System (PSPRS); handling the proliferation of group homes; allocating the city's alternative water; and finding a sustainable level of growth.
