The council decided to approach the amending chapter 95.03 relating to the sale of food in the parks at later date.

The council approved a request to rescind the previous contract award of Nov. 4, 2013 to WHF, Inc.

The council approved a request from the Sanitation Department to declare two 2009 Mack garbage trucks as surplus and approved for the trucks to be put on govdeals.com. The council also approved a list of miscellaneous equipment from the Utility Office as surplus.

The request to purchase Uninterruptable Power Supply from CDW-G was approved in the amount of $15,343.16 for the new dispatch center. The council also approved a circuit breaker from Rexel in the amount of $383.49 also for the new dispatch center.

“Our dispatch center is moving along and this will be our last big purchase,” said Chief Wade Williams. “We are pretty much done on our side. We are waiting on the electrical to be done. I'll say we should be up and running in the new dispatch by the beginning of May.”
