Clerk-Treasurer has set up a meeting with American Legal Publishing to come in and look at our Ordinances and give an estimate on doing ordinance codification.
Discussed the issues with Datamatic (meter reading devices). The company went bankrupt and will no longer maintain any of our gas devices. We are in the process of switching to Badger Meter, in order for the transition to go smoothly, the Gas Department can loan the Water Department an estimated $20,000 so that all the necessary equipment can be purchased and the use of Datamatic’s system can be discontinued.
Motion was made to approve the loan for the Gas Department to the Water Department. DeDee 1st, Norman 2nd

Shawn also wanted to thank the Street Department for removing the snow at the Fire House.
