The results of the audit were good.

“There are no reportables. At least no reportables. No reportables that are any concern,” said Edwards, “So that tells us it’s a very good audit. And kudos to the finance department, to department heads, to the council for conducting a very strong year, financially.”

That presentation will be delivered at the pre-council work session.  Consideration of a $3 million project is on the agenda for the regular meeting. These funds are slated for runway improvements.

“We have a 5,000 foot runway. And this improves, reconstructs the regional airport runway. So this is another step in the process to have the bids accepted. The bid, even though it’s at $3 million, came in $1 million dollars under budget, and 95 percent of that is paid with a federal grant.”

The Council must approve several steps of the overall process before the whole project can be completed.

The City’s TRIM grant is also up for discussion, as is the bid for a Hook Lift Truck. Council gathers at 7:00 this evening. The work session will be held one hour prior to the regular meeting.
