indexCONCORDIA, Mo – The Concordia Board of Aldermen met Monday, October 5, 2015. Regular housekeeping items were approved in relatively short order.

Old business included the consideration of the reimbursement from general funds of monies used for the repair of sidewalks at City Hall and drive entrances.  Most problems were said to have been fixed to comply with ADA standards with one project pending.

Police Chief Jim Lynn was recognized during the meeting for having served 20 years for the city of Concordia.

A moderately lengthy presentation was given by City Administrator, Dale Klussman showing numbers for the city budget pertaining to the second quarter of the ’15-’16 fiscal year.  Halfway through the city’s fiscal year, many expensive projects managed to be outpaced by city revenues.  Projected revenues of nearly $29,000 remain relatively unchanged from last quarter’s projection, which means the city is financially on the right track.

The board accepted a proposal to allow Rick Wood Construction to repair damage to a City Hall entry and vertical crack joints.

The Concordia Entrance Project, which has not been breached for some time at council meetings, was brought up once again as meetings had been scheduled with project leaders and representatives from MoDOT.  The presentation of the full project to the city Improvement Committee will also take place.  They will be expected to deliver a formal request to the board for a public hearing on the matter.  After public approval, a tentative timetable for the project includes sending bids out this winter, and construction beginning in late spring or early summer.

The meeting concluded with the Administrator’s report and various reports by Aldermen expressing pleasure with the main street project and congratulations for Chief Jim Lynn.
