OTHER BUSINESS

  • The board awarded a bid for concrete services for $72,300 to Aggregate Industries. The board mistakenly opened two envelopes at its meeting Monday, April 7. One of the envelopes was not labeled and included a quote for the demolition of 321 N. Main St. The documents were returned to J.W. Concrete.
  • The city’s water utility office will calculate residential sewer bills this summer based on sewer bills issued in November, December and January. The office issued a systemwide freeze warning from Feb. 11 to March 28, asking customers to leave a small stream of water running from an interior faucet to prevent water lines from freezing. Water and sewer bills were adjusted for customers who contacted the utility office during the warning because of increased water usage.
  • The board accepted a utilities easement from Donald Ray and Patsy Jo Hall at 804 Steury Ave.
