Mayor Dean Kelly noted he is inviting Rich Bartow to come back to a future meeting and explain more about the bond savings plan. Bonds can be paid in the 10th month to save interest for two months.
Newly hired city secretary, Melissa Cook reported the online payment account has been operational and there have been a few customers already use it. She gave the financial report; however she wasn’t sure about the correctness of the numbers so she will email the correct report when it is finished. She said the city did make the bond savings of $11,400 for the month of January.
It was noted with the hiring of Cook, Angie Lightner needs to be taken off the bank accounts and Cook needs to be added.
