|Wednesday, 15 May 2013 00:00|
The town of Boswell and Public Works Authority meetings held on Tuesday were comprised of two executive sessions for the purpose of hiring of a city clerk, a change in the city judge, a raise for the police chief and an amendment to city clerk‘s position.
Discussion during the executive session led to the approval of hiring Barbara Hollihan as clerk/treasurer, and appointing Allen Perry as the judge. The police chief was granted a $200 per month raise and the amendment to the hours/terms of the city clerk were all matters decided during the sessions. A no vote for the change in the judge was entered by Robert Moore.
Phil Ross addressed the board regarding his Community Resource Group rate study on water and sewer. For water, the change will be $3 for up to 3,000 gallons, $6 for 4,000 gallons, $12 for 5,000 to 6,000 gallons. There would be no change to the sewer rate for up to 3,000 gallons. For 4,000 gallons, the change is 50 cents, and for 5,000 to 6,000 the change is $1.50.
The rate change was approved. Multiple reasons for the change were discussed, to include that the current rates are not in compliance with the bond agreement, and that bond loan funds were used to pay the delinquency debt for use of the Rural Water No. 6 water. This use will continue until a well is replaced, which is possibly several months into the future.
