Public Comment on Non- Agenda Items:  

DC Orr, 1117 Nevada, asked to correct the public record.  Mr. Orr said council was not told the truth about the cease and desist order. This was a way to exclude him from attending council meetings. Mr. Orr said council was tricked by Mrs. Ford.  Mr. Orr said Mrs. Ford had no right to say he was stalking her on social media.  Orr said council needs to set a standard and not allow a fellow council member to slander a member of the public.  Council needs to stand up and say this was not acceptable at council meetings. Mr. Orr said this could be done in council rules and procedures. Council can punish or expel members for improper conduct. Mr. Orr said the city attorney can write a memo explaining the misconducts to expel council members. Mr. Orr would like someone to take the initiative.

 

New Business:

Award contract to TDH/AE2S to complete PERS for water and sewer:

Mike Fraser presented council with a summary and timeline that led up to the final committee recommendation for TDH/AE2S to complete PERS for water and sewer.

 

Ms. Smith asked how the grant funds will be paid for.

Jim Hammons said the water fund has the funds the sewer fund does not.

 

Mr. Zimmerman MADE A MOTION to accept the committee recommendation for TDH/AE2S.

Mr. Armstrong SECOND.

 

Ms. Smith questioned action item 1 second sentence in the contact, if the performance is acceptable the team may be authorized to complete future project work.

Mike Frasier said this does not tie the city into further work.

 

Zimmerman, Smith, Beach, Armstrong and Ford voted FOR.

MOTION PASSED.

 

Mr. Zimmerman MADE A MOTION to move forward with the PERS for water and sewer.

Mr. Armstrong SECOND.

 

  1. Orr, 1117 Nevada, asked how the city was paying for their portion of funding out of water and sewer.

Jim Hammons said the water portion could come out of water or the city could get an intercap loan. Once the funding was in place the intercap loan would be paid back.  The money cannot come out of the sewer fund or the city could match funds out of the ED fund.

DC Orr asked council to be transparent when they made the decision about the funding.
