Budget Amendment at Owen City Council Meeting
Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 -- 10:25 AM-A budget amendment was discussed during the Owen City Council Meeting on Tuesday of last week.
An Amendment to the Police Department 2014 Budget for vehicle maintenance expense was discussed. The squad has had extensive work to it already this year and this budget line item may go over.
Public Works Director Gary Smith reported that there was a water main break on Saturday. Smith and Erik Stinson fixed it that same day. Dennis Looker & Stinson explained how the water main leak was fixed at Town & Country the week before. They have also started to sweep the streets. Smith explained there may be a way to get rid of the brown water issues the city has been dealing with. They would need to line the mains with a plastic liner which would be extremely expensive for the City to do.
The council also approved to send Erik Stinson to Water Operations Basics Training in Plover where he will earn 24 CEC?s for Municipal Water Operations Specialist.
