Officer Daniel CavanahMadisonville, KY (12-5-2011) – Madisonville Police Officer, Daniel Cavanah, was recognized at the regular Council meeting on Monday night.  Mayor David Jackson presented Cavanah with an “Exemplary Customer Service Award” after Don and Teresa Hatler sent a letter of appreciation to The Messenger praising Cavanah’s assistance in finding Don Hatler’s wallet after a traffic accident.  In the letter to the editor, the Hatlers said “After everyone was safe and the vehicles were out of the ditch, the officer (Daniel Cavanah) helped us look for the billfold which he found on the other side of the culvert.  We are so thankful for all his help.  He is a wonderful young man.  It makes us proud of our police department.  We wanted to let him know that we really appreciate all his help and the way he treated us in a stressful situation.”   In his award, Jackson said that “Your professional expertise and demeanor exemplifies the excellent customer service our citizens expect from the City.  I commend you for your commitment and have directed that a copy of the attached certificate and this letter be placed in your personnel file."

In other business, the council approved payment of bills and payroll and approved the low bid of $30,425.00 to Watthour Engineering Company for an electric meter test system.  The electric department received two bids.  Electric superintendent, Jim Asbury, recommended the purchase over the higher bid of $33,840.00 by EPE Solutions.  

City Finance Director, Cory Alexander, reported that the City had collected $1,225,140 of property taxes representing 89% of the total $1,364,565 billed.  Alexander said that this is slightly better than the 87% collected at this time last year.

In what was described as a formality, the Council approved an alley and then closed the same alley.

Mayor Jackson presented Councilman Raymond Marion with a certificate declaring him a “Kentucky Colonel”.  Jackson quipped that Marion was now Colonel Bishop Raymond Marion.  Actually, it is Councilman Colonel Bishop Raymond Marion.Colonel Marion
