City Of Eureka Received Funding For Memorial Hall Roof

Council members approved truck purchases

On Monday, February 9, Eureka City Administrator Lucas Mullin reported to City Council members that Memorial Hall was named among the recipients of the Heritage Trust Fund Grant. The grant was applied for in early November to help fund the replacement of the roof at Memorial Hall. Up to $86,168 will be awarded to complete the project. City council members budgeted $84,000 for the project, in the event the funding was not received.

Bids for the purchase of four trucks, one for the Lake, the water department, Street Department and one for the city Administrator’s Office, were received from Burk’s Auto’s Inc., Rusty Eck Ford, GM and Parks Motors. Mullin told council members that Public Works Director Preston Evenson and the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office had found bids for the city. Mullin noted that the bid supplied by the Sheriff’s Office for the purchase of four Dodge trucks came in significantly lower than the others received. After directing their attention to the quotes provided by Parks Motors, in reference to the vehicle to be purchased for the Administrator’s Office, Councilman Jason Brandt noted that if the city intended to rotate the vehicle to a different department in a few years, it would be advisable to purchase a truck with 4-wheel drive. Mullin pointed out that it would cost an additional $1,400 for the 4-wheel drive option.
