The Chrisman City Council met on Thursday, January 6th, 2022 after a reschedule due to not enough councilmen able to attend the meeting that was supposed to happen Monday night, January 3rd.
The meeting began with the approval of the previous meeting minutes along with claims in the amount of $58, 853.83 for the meeting. The liquor license renewal for the American Tap was also approved.
With no new business or unfinished business, the commissioners gave their reports.
Commissioner Thad Crispin said that due to minimum wage going up on January 1st, a interim employee at the City will now have her pay raised to $12.00/hour. “Hopefully next week, we can get our Christmas decor down from the park and maybe some people will follow suit,” Crispin said.
Crispin stated that once the leaves dry up on Madison and Monroe, city employees will be cleaning them up. Crispin also had written a check for the first part of the electric for the pavilion in Centennial Park.
“I’ll have to get in touch to see when it plans on starting.”
Commissioner Bryan Haddix mentioned that a sewer problem was reported at the treatment plant due to a blockage. Jason Gore from Lankster and Gore came out to assist with the problem. “He did get it all cleaned up,” said Haddix. “They’re supposed to be here next week to do some work at the sewer plant.”
The cost for the work comes out to around $5,000 and Haddix said that he needed to put it on the agenda. “Anything under $20,000 you’re good for,” Mayor Danny Owen said. “We just need to vote to make sure that everyone is on board.”
Haddix wasn’t sure what the work was going to entail, but said that they would also be needing to send a sample to PEC.
PEC stands for Professional Engineering Consultants. The firm specializes in sewer rehabilitation, waste water treatment, among other things.
Mayor Owen questioned if Matt Johnson would be available at this project.
Owen mentioned that Johnson needed to send a list on what all was going to be done with the clarifier.
“It hasn’t been running right since they put it in the ground,” Mayor Owen said.
“I don’t want to pay more money for that when it should’ve been taken care of on installation.”
