City Council voted on a number of items Monday evening before the announcement that Buffalo Wild Wings will be coming to St. Clair Shores.
Liquor license approved
A request for a liquor license from Marchiori Catering at the Assumption Cultural Center was approved by St. Clair Shores City Council. The catering company can now offer liquor for sale during events such as seafood buffets, Mother's Day brunches, and fundraisers. Currently, events would have to apply to the state for one-day licenses. The city now has five licenses available to be issued.

St. Clair Shores City Council approved the issuing $585,000 in bonds to pay for improvements to the city's sanitary sewers.
- City Council approved a three year contract with Plante & Moran for audit services. The bid contract was bid out, and after interviews and checking references, city staff recommended the contract with Plante & Moran—the city's current audit firm.
- A two-year extension of the tree trimming and stump removal contract with Wosney Tree Service was approved by City Council. The bid was nearly 60 percent lower than other bidders.
