OLD BUSINESS:

The only topic regarding old business was about the liftstation maintenance. People Service has ordered 4 floats and the stainless steel hanger and will install them in once they arrive.

NEW BUSINESS:

The first topic for discussion regarding new business was the report on the city water main break. The People Service packet provided additional information regarding the leak. It has been fixed and they are waiting for a test result before lifting the “boil water notice”.

The next on the agenda was regarding a new city tractor. Councilman Hardy spoke with the council and let them know that he is still in the process of getting estimates on the costs.

Mayor Farwell suggested to the council that we change the date/time of the monthly meetings to the 1st Monday of the month and to change the time to 7 p.m. The motion was made by Marshall, seconded by Hardy, to change the date/time of the meeting. All ayes.

Farwell then spoke to the council regarding the signing of checks. He suggested that we just have 1 signature, provided by the City Clerk, on the checks that are made out each month. He sees no reason why we would have any reason for another signature to be on the checks. Perkins moved that we allow just the Clerk’s signature, seconded by Moreland, motion carried.

Farwell then spoke to the council regarding Al Marshall’s pay as the City Road Maintenance. He informed the council that it had been quite a few years since Marshall had received a raise of any kind. A brief discussion was made regarding this and then a motion was made by Berger, seconded by Moreland to raise the rate from $10 an hr. to $13 an hr. A call for a vote was ordered: Berger, Hardy, Moreland,Perkins-aye. Marshall, abstained. Motion carried to raise the rate to $13 an hr.

Perkins moved that we pay Hardy $100 for allowing the town to use his truck, and for all of the help provided by him during the water main break, seconded by Moreland. The council discussed this a little further. A call for a vote was ordered. Berger, Marshall, Moreland, Perkins-aye. Hardy-nay. Motion was carried to provide Hardy with $100 for the use of his vehicle and the help that he provided.

The council also had a brief discussion regarding Mr. Robert Smith, who provided the town with the use of his backhoe during the water main break. The motion was made by Perkins, seconded by Hardy, to provide him with a $50 gift card to a restaurant as a thank you. All ayes, motion carried.

The council was provided with a packet from People’s Service with the water/sewer report.

There were no visitor comments to be made as there were no visitors.
