Brohammer said the proposed changes would cost the City about $2,000 per year.   “The Ray County Jail houses prisoners for the City of Richmond if we have occasion to put someone in behind bars,” said Brohammer, “We have a contract with them.  They’re raising their price over what it has been.  It’s ben $25 a day for men and $30 for women, and they’re raising it $5 each, to $30 for men and $35 for women.”

A resolution establishing a fire cadet program will be considered.  Council has already approved the insurance fee, and Brohammer said several youth have expressed interest.

Council is also expected to consider a Richmond Police Department grant request to MoDOT.  If the dpartment gets the grant, they could receive about $4,000 to put more of the force out on the road at certain times.

A work session will be held at 5:30.  A presentation about re-financing the municipal complex will be held.

The regular session will start at 6:30 in Council Chamber.
