Brief City Council Agenda for Monday Meeting

The Lamar City Council’s Monday night work session will begin at 5:30pm, November 28, in council chambers and consist of a Public Official’s Liability Presentation by Tami Tanoue, CIRSA representative to the city. Council members will also meet with the Lamar Rotary Club which is looking for a project Rotary members can contribute to the City.

In regular session, City Administrator Bill Pfeilsticker is expected to present an update on the new sewer line being installed at the Cow Palace Inn, and an update on the Sutrak curbing project in the industrial park.

Council members have among them, some 15 different boards and commissions on which they serve as liaison. Each year, the council selects those boards for which they feel they could best serve. Appointments range from Lamar Housing Authority, Utilities Board, Airport-Tree-Water Boards, PCDI, Police and Fire Departments and several others.

The council will discuss an intergovernmental agreement between Bent County and the City of Lamar Fire Department. The Fire Department has been awarded over $20,000 for equipment purchases by the State Homeland Security Grant Program. Bent County serves as the fiscal agent for the Southeast Region All Hazards Board. The fundings will be allocated in three phases.

The balance of the council meeting will deal with various housekeeping and contract agreements for city employee health programs, a revision of a contract for construction upgrades at the Lamar Airport, and an adjustment of water fees for several city water customers.
