Judy Thomas, Clerk Treasurer, presented the Council with the finalized contract for SURF Internet. Town Attorney Jacob Ahler is working on a letter to Commonwealth regarding the Wastewater Plant issues.

Utility Clerk Breanna Plantenga and Clerk Treasurer Judy Thomas expressed concern over a leaking water line. The line doe not belong to the town, but has not been repaired by the property owner. The customers are not paying for the water being used, but the town is unable to turn their meter off, due to it affecting other paying customers. There is a loss of money and product. Breanna and Judy told the Council that they believe that the rest of the ARPA money should be used on providing a new line that the town has control over, rather than using the money to pave around the fire station. After much discussion, Council Member Darwin Miller made a motion to get bids for the job. Council Member Betty Hoster second the motion. Motion carried 3-0. Judy also reported that the ARPA money used, has never been reported to the government within the last few years.  A bid was presented to the Council for the paving at the fire station. Bids for this job were never advertised for bid. Council member Darwin Miller made a motion to advertise bids for the paving at the fire station. Council member Betty Hoster second the motion. Motion carried 3-0.

Judy Thomas stated that the Clerk’s Office received two complaints about Darwin Miller and George Mathew spraying weed killer around town, in people’s yards, and along the highway.

The contract for SURF Internet was brought up for approval. After some discussion, Council member Betty Hoster made a motion to table the issue. Council member Darwin Miller second the motion.  Motion carried 3-0.

A resident expressed some concern for overflowing grease traps in town.
