Meeting: Ferdinand Town CouncilApril 22, 2020
The Ferdinand Town Council met Tuesday and:
• Recognized Police Chief Lloyd Froman’s 40 years of service with the police department and thanked him for his dedication.
• Approved the memorandum of understanding with Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center to place a Safe Haven baby box at the Ferdinand EMT facility.
• Signed the agreement for Community Crossings funding awarded to the town and set a date to open bids for street projects that will use the funding. Bids will be opened at 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 19.
• Hired Midwest Engineers to review and validate the town’s water loss report for $1,500. The validation is required by the state to be done every two years.
• Hired Baker Tilly to compile the town’s bond reporting document, which is required annually by the state. The company will do the work for $500.
• Amended the town’s salary ordinance to make sure a person who is still on call but working from home is paid. Every department has one person who is on call and working at home; that way, if someone in the office becomes infected with COVID-19, the whole department is not completely down, Board President Ken Sicard explained.
• Reminded the public that not everything can be flushed; only things designed to be flushed, like toilet paper, should be. Cleaning items, like wipes, will clog up the sanitation system, Sicard said.
