REPORTS BY CITY MANAGER, CITY COUNCIL, STAFF, COMMITTEES
Miscellaneous New Business
  Vice Mayor Curtis gave remarks on a recent event held in Hampton, Slide the City. She outlined some difficulties with the event and how city officials were on hand to address the issues as expeditiously as possible so that the event could proceed and many citizens were able to have a great time at the event.

She also spoke about Hampton's Carousel and how a splash park in that area would be a nice addition. She asked that staff look into that possibility.

Additionally, Vice Mayor Curtis spoke of a recent visit to Fort Wool with several state officials. She became aware of some short-term, relatively inexpensive measures which might be taken to arrest some of the deterioration which is occurring so that perhaps one day it could be rehabilitated. The Vice Mayor did clarify that the Fort is owned by the Commonwealth and leased by the City of Hampton. She would like to see history preserved and the tourism potential realized.

She reminded those in attendance that tomorrow is Hampton's 405th birthday and also Dr. Mary Christian's birthday.

Councilman Moffett mentioned Transforming Lives and Restoring Hope and a conference for young people they are holding from July 16-18 at the Midtown Community Center in Newport News. Individuals may register online at www.eventbrite.com.
Public Comment
  Hugh Bassette spoke of the current controversy involving the Confederate Flag. He indicated that the gift shop of the Hampton History Museum sells a hat and some cards which have the Confederate Flag on them. As a black individual, he finds these items offensive. He has no problem with individuals displaying the flag on their home or in their windows. He does not feel tax dollars should be used for this purpose. Ms. Bunting indicated that, prior to the meeting, Jim Wilson, Director of Parks & Recreation, spoke with Mr. Bassette and indicated to him that the items will be removed first thing tomorrow morning. Councilwoman Schmidt, Councilman Moffett, and Mayor Wallace shared some personal feelings involving this issue.
Adjournment
  The meeting adjourned at 7:57 p.m.
