“You can attempt to settle with him,” Tagert said. “My main concern is I don’t want to repeat work that the city has already paid for as our other litigation moves forward.”

“I’d just like you two to get together and work this out,” Hawkins said to Tagert.

Tagert said she had been unsuccessful in getting Adkison to return her calls, but she would continue trying to contact him.

“How about I call him and get him to get in touch with you?” Hawkins asked.

In other business, Fire Chief Tim Barnes reported that both fire trucks are still out of service following an accident on Aug. 18.

The two trucks were on their way down Highway 79 to a car fire in Ebro on a rainy Sunday when the fire engine started to skid in the rain after braking to avoid a vehicle which had suddenly stopped in front of the truck in the roadway.

“They didn’t pull over, they just hit the brakes when they saw us,” Barnes told the council at the Aug. 19 workshop.
