The Hermiston City Council will announce a vacancy on the Hispanic Advisory Committee at 7 p.m. Monday night.

Advisory member Jerry Trujillo resigned from the committee earlier this week, according to committee chair Eddie De La Cruz.

The deadline for submitted applications to fill the seventh committee slot is 5 p.m. July 5.

The City Council will consider a request from Eastern Oregon Telecom to erect a 12-foot wireless tower on top of the Hermiston Butte.

EOT general manager and CEO Joseph Franell said the tower would provide high speed internet services to households and businesses in the Hermiston area that currently do not have access or a choice of providers.

The council will also consider a request for a liquor license at Bellinger's Produce LLC, owned by Donna and Robert “Jack” Bellinger.

The Bellingers are planning a “commercial expansion” of their store where they will sell beer and wine by the glass as well as food.

In other business, the council is scheduled to:

• Recognize Dave Drotzmann as mayor-elect of Hermiston.

• Confirm Kay Bennett to the city's Library Board for a four-year term running from July 1 to June 30, 2016.

• Consider an ordinance amending the city's comprehensive plan map and zoning map for 708 East Main St.

• Certify Hermiston Recall Election results.

• Hear a report from Parks and Recreation Director Larry Fetter on the Fourth of July celebration.

• Approve the June 11 meeting minutes.

Meetings are open to the public and there is an opportunity for public comment.
