Mt. Pulaski City Council Committee Meeting c o.t,a F,oi Page 3 Grant Money Mayor Jim Fuhrer said he had made further contact concerning the $100,000 grant for the Elkhart Road lift the station. So far, no one can tell him where the money is. Jim noted Senator Brady had started this when the Senator told the city to prepare the grant and get it into the state so it could help pay for the Elkhart Road lift sta- tion. Jim characterized Senator Brady's action so far as - "not following through" - on behalf of the city. Wall Issue Richard Teike and Mayor Fuhrer discussed Mr. Teike's request for further work on the south part of the wall of his build- ing. The additional repair would cost an estimated $5,500. The requested repair was for the very end of the wall - on the alley - of the three brick deep end of the wall. Times Photos Plumbing Heating A/C - Electrical Bassett's Mechanical 'nc Mt.

Mayor Fuhrer said a third party had threatened to sue the city to make the additional repair. Mayor Fuhrer said it is up to the City Council as to what is to be done concerning the additional repair. He asked the Council Members to take a look at the wall and decide what to do at the voting meeting March 10. Mayor Fuhrer told the council that if they have a tie vote on the question, he would be voting no. He added - in summary - that his opinion should not influence the vote. Other Business City Treasurer Jim Sutton reported receipts of $27,483.85 for the period Feb. 13 - Feb. 27. Councilmember John Utterback said the city needed to base build- ing permit costs on square footage not a flat fee. He said a building permit fee should cost $100 on a 2,000 square foot building. The plan will be discussed further at the March 10 voting meeting. Councilmember John Utter- back suggested the $300 per month "wildlife" trapping fee could be modified. He said that someone calling in to have an animal trapped should pay half the cost. Currently the city pays a trapper up to the monthly budget of $300.
