Carrollton City Hall FeatureThe agenda of the Carrollton City Council meeting Monday evening included an appearance by State Representative Joe Don McGaugh.

The 39th District Rep. gave a brief rundown of the past session of the Missouri House, highlighting a few key measures.

One was House Bill 42, relating to school transfers of students from unaccredited districts. McGaugh said it’s important these children have a chance to attend a better performing school, but some items in the bill earned the Governor’s veto.

Another piece of legislation the representative spoke about was Senate Bill 224, which prevents immigrants that are in the country illegally receiving benefits through the state’s A + Program. McGaugh explained why.

During proceedings council also approved a change in the purchasing and selling guidelines to improve efficiency and lower costs as recommended by the annual audit.

Council also awarded a bid for replacing windows at the airport to Moonlight Construction in the amount of $2,089.13.

Another agenda item was Area Economic Alliance Executive Director Sharon Metz speaking about the progress of the Veteran’s Wall.

Metz intimated the wall is nearly complete and now Carrollton Municipal Utilities will connect the water and the school will contribute two Trojan heads to be attached with the Welcome to Carrollton sign.

Council will gather for their next regular session September 7, 2015 at 6 p.m.
