Hamilton To Seek Bids For New City Truck

Hamilton City Council members agreed at their meeting last Thursday to begin seeking bids for a new city truck. After reviewing the city’s financial reports, the council decided that the end of the year would be a good time to make the purchase. The truck will be paid for out of the city’s three main accounts: water, with a current balance of $40,571; general, with a current balance of $40,884; and sewer, with a current balance of $22,799. In multiple discussions over the years, the council has discussed the purchase of a new truck. The increased rates for city utilities and no major water leaks this year led to a higher income for the city. “Based on our numbers, it looks to me like we’ve got it,” said councilman Lance Snyder. The council agreed. The city will be seeking bids from area dealerships for a new truck. They hope to compare bids at their December 13 meeting.

Due to certifications expiring, the council agreed to sponsor another AED/CPR training for the Hamilton fire department volunteers, and city employees and councilmembers who wish to attend. City Clerk Kelly Cathey planned to get one scheduled. The public will be welcome to attend, but will be responsible for paying the course fee, approximately $25.
