Reports highlight Arapahoe City Council meeting

The regular Arapahoe City Council meeting was called to order on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 by Mayor John E. Koller. Council members in attendance were Chris Middagh, Troy ten Bensel, Todd Monie, Dan Kreutzer and Ward Carpenter. Council member John Paulsen was absent. Also attending was City Superintendent Greg Schievelbein, City Attorney Kevin Urbom and City Clerk and Treasurer Donna Tannahill. Koller made everyone aware of the open meeting act.
In the City Attorney’s report, council member Carpenter asked Urbom about truck parking into town and discussed what was in the ordinance about leaving trucks on for long periods of time. The council also discussed the jake brake ordinance. Mayor Koller suggested if council members notice anything to contact the sheriff’s department.
In the clerk’s report, Tannahill stated that Jeff Wernsman with Day & Night Services is working on a quote for the Mission Mall air conditioning unit, as the current one is 30 years old. The roof on the Mission Mall was also leaking mostly due to damage from the hail storm. Tannahill stated that the food pantry was deleted from the insurance plan back in 2015 so any damage done from the storm is not covered. Tannahill asked the council if they would like to add it back on and they agreed. Tannahill attended a finance conference held by the auditors in Kearney and she gained good information to use.
In Committee reports, council members discussed the previous finance meeting with the auditor and Tannahill. The council discussed what needs to be done to get back into compliance and the auditor brought a lot of things to the council’s attention that they were unaware of. The council then chose to go into closed session to discuss further.
