The Ripon Rotary Club has played an active role in the community.
In the past year, the local club has donated a 12-foot high memorial clock in downtown and is now adding to that with a welcome to Ripon sign.
In fact, the Ripon City Council will honor the service organization under the leadership of President Harrison Gibbs at tonight’s 7 p.m. open session.
A resolution is on the agenda supporting the northbound Highway 99 just off the Main Street ramp.
The Rotary welcome sign will incorporate the City of Ripon logo. But because of its location on the Caltrans right of way, council approval of the sign is required.
Along with the City of Ripon, the design and construction of the sign must satisfy all requirements of Caltrans.
Rotary is taking care of the cost, construction and design but will look to get maintenance assistance from the City.
The session will take place in the Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave.
In other agenda items:
• Council members are looking to adopt a policy regarding the process on how they place items on the agenda.
• They’ll also present a proclamation to the Ripon Lions Club for 71 years of service to the community.
• Elected leaders will discuss the PALS grant program, in particular, the grant program criteria on awarding individual scholarships to Ripon organizations or individuals.
