Old Business

Water Project – The USDA loan application is working through the approval process.  City Waterworks COO Rex Brinker will be involved in the planning phase of the project.  No response was received from letters dated 12/11/17 that were sent to fifteen Native American Tribal Entities verifying that the proposed water project does not interfere with tribal gravesites or historical areas.  As a result, The Missouri DNR is requesting an archeological study for two areas that have never been developed.  Lisa Danbury with MARC sent out requests for bids to perform the study to nine businesses that can perform such a study with a deadline to respond by 5 pm on 2/9/17.  Two bids were received; one from K&K Environmental LLC for $1,700.00 and another from Atwell LLC for $10,000.00.  Both firms met all requirements (including a 30 day turn around) for the project.  After reviewing the bids, the Council voted 4-0 to select K&K Environmental.

Mayor Moore confirmed that new street signs will be installed to replace missing signs and to reflect changes to speed zones.

City Hall – Work will continue as weather and schedules permit.  Mayor Moore was contacted by a local resident that wants to submit a bid to finish the project.   The Council decided to consider the bid if submitted.

New Business

Resident Larry Johnson advised the Council that he will take possession of property at 607 Main effective March 7th, 2018, and will clean up the property after that date.  He asked about unpaid fines on the place.  He was advised by the Mayor that fines against the current owner do not apply and new ones will not be levied if clean up and junk removal is completed in a timely manner.

The next Council meeting is scheduled for 7:00 pm on Monday, March 12th, 2018, at the MCCA Building.

Meeting adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,

Monte Railey – City Clerk
