Water/Waste Water Report: Everything is running well just keeping an eye on the water with the cold weather. Still need to get the motor replaced at the one lift station, but with the weather and the fact that Kevin has been doing classes, the replacement has not been done yet. Everything is running fine, however.
Street Maintenance: Kevin will be continuing to watch the roads, so he can blade them, as necessary.
Old Business: We were able to get a used computer, so Kevin could take the classes for his water certification. He has completed them and now is taking the test. We wish him luck.
New Business: The City is looking into getting some new Christmas Decorations for the City Streets. Carol will be looking into different ways of doing this.
Positive Thoughts: Carol brought some delicious goodies for the meeting.
