Welcome quits Frontier service

WELCOME — Welcome City Council this week officially unsubscribed from Frontier internet service.

The city clerk said the LTD Broadband is working well so far.

In other business, Engineer Matt Cole of Bolton & Menk reported on the feasibility study for the proposed road improvement project for 2019.

The council discussed water mains, sidewalks and ADA compliance for sidewalks, certain streets, and changes that could be made to cut some expense and assessments for homeowners. The assessment is usually 30 percent of cost. Market value and lot access, among other things, go into calculating the assessment.

An official resolution on the road project was tabled until next meeting, so that more discussion and explanations can take place

In another matter, Public Works employees reported that the basket for the skid loader is not OSHA-approved. The council advised them to fix the basket and get bids on a new one. The employees reminded the council that they will soon be using the basket to put up Christmas decorations.

Turning to another matter, the council approved putting the old poles from the softball field at Hansen-Keck Park on the surplus equipment list. They have been offered for sale to a resident.

City officials reminded residents that the next meeting of the City Council will be 6 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall.
