SOFTBALL FUNDS -- The council approved giving up to $250 each to the Vienna Stars and the Vienna Shamrocks, girls' softball teams from the Vienna Pigtail-Ponytail League who want to attend a national competition in Boulder, Colo.

COMMUNITY CENTER -- The council voted to contract with Pagano Construction Co. for $2,446 to do work required in construction of the addition to the Vienna Community Center. The money will be paid from bond funds.

CLEANUP PROGRAM -- The council postponed a decision on whether to participate in a Chamber of Commerce trash and litter cleanup program. The program would be a sustained effort jointly funded by the chamber and the town. The council requested a further investigation of the town's liability coverage and the willingness of the business community to pay the salaries for town employes who do the work.

VIENNA GATEWAY CENTER -- The council approved the landscape plan for Vienna Gateway Center. Acting on a recommendation from the Planning Commission, the council made its approval subject to the council getting better details on the height of a rear wall the commission felt might not conform to regulations governing adjacent commercial property. The commission recommended that information about the wall and about a planting area nearby be given to the Architectural Review Board.

PARK STREET RECONSTRUCTION -- The council scheduled a work session for Sept. 24 to discuss a study prepared by the Virginia Department of Transportation on the reconstruction of Park Street. The study shows ways to improve Park Street in such a way to minimize a loss of trees and build a four-foot-wide concrete sidewalk along the south side.

ZONING HEARING -- The council voted to conduct a public hearing on Oct. 19 or Nov. 2 to hear comments on the council's earlier adoption of an ordinance amending a section of the town's zoning regulations so it conforms with the Virginia State Code.
