Esto approves final reading to raise water rates

Council members also agreed with Council member Darlene Madden’s suggestion to look into improving the recreational center by possibly repairing the kitchen’s cabinets, new tile floors for the bathrooms, reinforcing the window seats and putting a new seal on the concrete floor.

“Women have the tendency to notice things in the kitchen,” said Madden. “It’s nice that we’ve got a new roof, but we need to do something about the inside because we’ve got these women coming in for family reunions and cooking and it’s just an awful sight. How are we going to get more people to rent out the recreational center when it’s looking like that?”

Powell informed the council that there had been acts of vandalism on the dock at the park.

“We’ve patched it up the best we can until we can get the parts we need and in the color we want because when I went up there to get what we need they didn’t have it in the color we needed,” said Powell. “I’ll keep looking for our color and I’ll also get quotes to see if we can get the whole thing replaced in red or cedar.”

The council approved of moving the Two-Toe Tom Festival to the first weekend in April instead of the second.

“We just can’t compete with Toad Lick,” said Madden.

Council members agreed that it should be mandatory that maintenance workers work a full day before and on the day of the Two-Toe Tom Festival.
