Other business included:

• A resolution authorized a lot split located at Lot 21 at The Summit, along Aurora Avenue, owned by Jeff and Kim Bram.

• Approved an ordinance for the refunding certificates of participation for several projects. The ordinance allowed the mayor and city manager to sign the sale of the certification. This is expected to save $4.9 million and will include projects split between the South Main Street corridor, $700,000; 911 dispatching department furniture, fixtures and equipment, $285,000; downtown traffic signals, $400,000; city hall improvements, $50,000; water treatment plant membranes, $1,705,000 and refunding of Series 2010 taxable certificates of participation, $1,820,000. The water treatment plant membranes will be financed over seven years; the final payment on the refunded 2010 taxable certificates will be extended by seven months and end in September 2031. The remaining projects will be financed through September 2038. Over the life of the certificates, approximately $1,387,991 will be paid in interest and $4,960,000 in principal.

• Northwest Missouri State University’s RT Wright Farm Manager Jim Husz exchanged jobs with Maryville City Manager Greg McDanel to recognize the Maryville Chamber’s annual  farm-city banquet.

The ordinance increased the contract by $25,000.
