City Report:

  • The raw water pump and wet end have been fixed. With the A.R.P.A. Funds Gary would like to replace the system pump and get a back up pump in case of emergency. Without this pump it would be a struggle to get water to the system.
  • The City is looking into hiring a planner, Jordan Cogburn to take over planning decisions based on the new LDDO.
  • One of the RV’s not in compliance with Ord. #176 has voluntarily moved. The City is working with the attorney to bring the other RV’s into compliance.
  • The Council discussed law enforcement and the recent rash of crime in our community
  • A.R.P.A.  The City has received $22,000. so far from the A.R.P.A. Fund. The funding provided under ARPA allows the City to make strategic investments in long-lived assets, rebuild reserves to enhance financial stability, and cover temporary operating shortfalls until economic conditions and operations normalize.

Joan moved to approve using the A.R.P.A. Funds for the water plant upgrades. Dan S. seconded, motion carries 5:0 with yes votes by Dan Burke, Ryan Fall, Joan Smith, Kim Moore and Dan Shepherd.
