Burns Council votes to pay back loan in full
November 16, 2017
Glen Crumpton requested to install a radio system on the water tower to alleviate some of the dead spots for the emergency responders hand held radios. The Utility board approved, with the stipulation to work with the Burns maintenance crew, however approval was given to proceed not the final installation.
During the maintenance report, approval for a new tractor not to exceed $25,000.00. The request and approval is due to the current tractor motor needing replaced and it would cost as much to replace as it would be to buy new. Payment will be made out of the allocation, mapping and drainage funds due to the fact that the new tractor will be able to get into the ditches and work on the alleyways. Also, the sewers were all jetted last week and the parks have all been winterized.
Utility Board reported the resignation of the current board president Matt Fields. It will be posted to replace him in the near future.
Application for Jillian Vaudrin to join the Burn's volunteer EMT was approved by the council. 10 call for the month with 5 responses and two transports was also noted during the Ambulance report, as well as the ambulance being currently out of service, due to diagnoses for the long crank issue.
Motion was approved to pay the balance of $317,000.00 to WWDC (Wyoming Water Development Commission) for the A-7 Well. Approval was given to pay J & J Flooring $1,920.00 to seal the north gym floor and $18,755 to reseal both gym floors.
