Treasurer’s Report, Monthly Transaction Report & Accounts Payables

DEPARTMENT REPORTS
Superintendent Rich reported that the video of the tank cleaning and inspection was received and available for viewing.
KRWA Annual Conference is March 26-28, Wichita, KS. Rich and Eddie Tanner would like to attend. Cost is $245 per person plus mileage and lodging.

Motion by Kelly, Second by Esslinger, Approved 3-0 for Bobby Rich and Eddie Tanner, if he is wanting to get his water and wastewater certifications, to attend the KRWA Annual Conference in Wichita, March 26-28. If Tanner does not want to get certifications he will not be attending.

The City had a 14.3% water loss in 2018. Rich and Clerk Johnson feel this is too high and may indicate a leak somewhere in the system. Council directed him to pull a sample of the standing water and have tested for fluoride. We have no way to accurately determine how much water is used for flushing. A meter to attach to the hydrant is around $1,000. We also don’t know how much contractors use for boring machines. NPL & Radell both used water in 2018 but didn’t let us know how much they used. Council directed to get a meter for flushing and contractors. They have identified an area that is always wet and would like to investigate. The same area also needs ditch work and a culvert installed. Rich thinks a 4” plastic pipe will work for the culvert and we have one on hand.
The Rigid locator has been sent to Kansas City for repair. They are unable to repair and want to know if we want to send it to Rigid for repair at a cost of $720.54 or purchase a reconditioned locator for $894.23 plus freight. A new locator would cost $2300-$2650.

Motion by Kelly, Second by Ward, Approved 3-0 to have our locator repaired.

The lawn mower starter has been replaced for less than $100. Rich asked if he was still supposed to price new mowers and Council said to wait.

Mayor Jurgensen asked Rich to look at and price pickups to replace our current maintenance vehicle. He looked at and priced a couple at Sigg Motors and looked at Twin Motors in Iola. He inquired at Briggs Motors also but they have not gotten back to him with a quote. Sigg Motors has a 2007 Silverado 4x4 with a utility bed with 190,000 miles for $7,900 and a 2014 F250 4x4 with 127,000 for $17,500. Twin Motors can order a 2019 F250 4x4 with standard package for $27,500. It will take at least 12 weeks for delivery. There is $15,000 available in Capital Improvement-Maintenance Vehicle Fund and $5,000 available in the Water Reserve Fund at this time. We could lease-purchase through the bank for the balance. It was also suggested that he research the cost of a new utility bed, slide in utility box, or cover. The mechanic at Sigg Motors said there is a way to fix the current vehicle’s oil pressure problem. Rich spoke with Ol’ Boys Tire & Auto to price the repair and he has not gotten back to him yet.

Motion by Kelly, Second by Ward, Approved 3-0 to order pickup from Twin Motors, Iola, KS and finance the balance not already set aside with a lease purchase agreement at Union State Bank

Codes Enforcement Officer Coyan went by 202 Fourth Street to discuss the trash buildup but no one was home. He will try to meet with them in the next few days.
He also has spoken with Charles Smith several times in the past month regarding the Smith Estate properties. One of the junk vehicles has been removed and Mr Smith is to register/tag the other. Mr Smith indicated that the mobile homes were used for storage not as a dwelling. He also indicated that this spring the family plans to remodel the home and sell. Coyan should be receiving a letter from Smith outlining a timeline for abatement.

Clerk Johnson received a request for a donation for Uniontown High School SOS post-graduation party. The City has typically given $100 in the past.

Motion by Esslinger, Second by Ward, Approved 3-0 to donate $100 to Uniontown High School SOS post-graduation party

CCMFOA Annual Spring Conference is March 13-15, Manhattan, KS. Johnson requested to go at a cost of $325 plus sharing mileage and lodging with Bronson.

Motion by Kelly, Second by Esslinger, Approved 3-0 to allow Sally Johnson to attend CCMFOA Annual Spring Conference in Manhattan, KS, March 13-15

Clerk Johnson informed the Council that there is an ongoing conversation between Bourbon County and the City of Fort Scott about the possibility of forming a unified government. She feels this would be detrimental to the other towns in the county. She called County Commissioner Oharah to see if they were seriously considering this. He said one commissioner is leaning toward but he is against at this time.
William Wallis, Bourbon County Emergency Manager, has suggested that all key personnel for the City apply for Homeland Security badges. Each councilmember and employee was encouraged fill out the application and submit to Clerk with a photo to be submitted to Mr Wallis for badges. Bobby Rich has submitted an application for firefighter and for City Superintendent.
PSU School of Business is offering an education opportunity on Social Media, Online Marketing, and Understanding Financial Statements at Iola on February 27. Clerk Johnson would like to attend if there is not much going on at City Hall that day.

Motion by Kelly, Second by Esslinger, Approved 3-0 to allow Sally Johnson to attend PSU education opportunity in Social Media, Online Marketing, and Understanding Financial Statements on February 27 if not much going on at City Hall that day
