The Boswell town council and Public Works Authority held two executive sessions during Tuesday’s regular meetings, which lasted several hours.
The acceptance of Michael Armbrister to provide animal control services was approved. He will undergo a background check and application for a commission card. During the period he serves, he’ll wear a shirt that identifies him as providing animal control services. He will use his own vehicle with proper outfitting until a vehicle can be obtained for the purpose.
The result of action toward the Boswell Reading Center included the agreement to use the assistance of Chris Pierce for Internet services.
There were agenda items in both meetings regarding the request for the reduction of comp time from two hours to one hour. Pending further research, the comp time will be reduced to one hour per call for both the PWA and town.
It was voted to begin services with auditor David Gandall.
Sealed bids were opened for the vacant property on West and Main Street. The bids were not accepted and the bidding process will be re-opened.
The project at the school started during the summer, which involves dismantling a sidewalk, will proceed with volun-teer labor and the use of the town’s backhoe. The operation of the backhoe is to be provided by a city employee. Jim Robinson will provide his truck for hauling. It was a matter with no action taken, as it will be performed on a voluntary basis.
On June 10, Phil Ross, representing the USDA Rural Development project and an engineer, will visit the property considered for the well project with escorts including the Belvins and members of the council.
In new business, the concerns of a citizen were heard regarding a fine decided by the court.
