He said that he had recently completed clear- ing out the ditch at his house. Mayor Fuhrer said that city employees can do the ditches and he didn't think Jim Boy should've done his. Jim Boy said he has been clearing his own ditches for probably 49-years and asked where the dty has been for all those years as far as clean- ing that ditch. There was then an exchange of words - and some complete sen- tences - by Jim Boy and Mayor Fuhrer. Neither conceded an understand- fng of the other's position. At one point, Jim Boy said "Jim you're a joke" and the wheels really fell off that conversation. Going back to the ditch, Jim Boy was told that he could haul the debris from the ditch out to the city burn pile. Jim Boy said that the city could haul that debris out. Matt Presswood stepped into the conversation and said that he would spirit away the debris himself. : Water and Sewer Com- mittee looked into the Bliss Leak Detection Com- pany and they concluded it would be a good deal to pay $750 to find a major leak in the city water system. So they offered a change to the bliss contract by saying Mount Pulaski would pay for leaks that were actually dug up and confirmed. Bliss said that was no problem. So Bliss coming into town. The Water and Sewer Commit- tee said that "we'll try a couple" leak tests and if it proves out, then we'll look at actually entering into a contract. Looking for information beyond their website, the paper found Bliss Leak Detection is a member of the Illinois Rural Water Association as an asso- ciate member. No com- plaints were found. Next up in discussion was tarring cracks in the citY streets. The city has been looking for a new tar compound flaat stays in the cracks in the street once it's put in.During the discussion, it was brought up that the city is going to be busy vacuuming and collecting leaves. One idea floated was to not vacuum and collect leaves this year and concentrate on tar- ring those cracks. Nobody agreed with that idea, but nobody disagreed either. Last item before adjournment was looking at signing a lease agree- ment with the Athletic Association. The Associa- tion pays two dollars for a two-year agreement for the use of Frazier Park. It was noted that the city does pay half of the cost of mowing expense for Fra- zier Park, but since it's for the benefit of the young people of the community it was agreed the 1/2 cost of mowing is a good idea.
