Vernon council OKs Enterprise Zone changes

Councilman Shawn Sanders reported that the repair estimates for the city’s two fire trucks had been submitted. “The estimate for the fire engine repairs is $45,000 and repairs to the tanker will cost $65,000.”

The two fire trucks were damaged when they collided with each other en route to a fire call in August.

“The insurance adjuster figured $16,000 for the tanker and only $7,000 for the engine,” Sanders said. “We’ve got to get with the insurance company and see what to do. We’ve got full coverage insurance, so they either have to fix it or replace it. It’s just a matter of working out the details.”

In other business, the council approved paying a negotiated amount to former city attorney Kerry Adkison.

“I met with Mr. Adkison and we had a very good meeting,” said City Attorney Michelle Tagert. “I had the chance to review all the city’s files and reviewed the work products case-by-case.”

The original amount of the bill was about $27,000.  Tagert said she and Adkison had discussed the billing, and he agreed to a lower amount of $10,230, which the council agreed to pay.
