CLAYPOOL — The Claypool Town Council wrapped up its year-end business during its meeting Tuesday, Dec. 18, by approving new town ordinances, while also agreeing to have the town switch to a new IT provider.
During last month’s meeting, Town Marshal Ben Sanders said he and Clerk-Treasurer Pat Warner were having issues with W.A.C.D., the town’s current IT provider. Both said they did not have passwords to gain access to their computers.
Sanders announced at this month’s meeting that the town successfully received all of its passwords and required information from W.A.C.D. The town also does not have a contract with W.A.C.D.
The council approved switching the town over to a new IT provider, Mastermind Computers.
In other business, the council approved a new promotional appropriation ordinance. The ordinance will allow the town to establish a financial account to promote tourism in the Claypool area. These funds would go toward town decorations, town Christmas dinners, or flowers for residents that pass away. The council agreed to start the account out with $200 and will add more if deemed necessary.
The council also approved two ordinances regarding salaries and holidays for town employees and council members. A resolution was also passed to allow Warner to make final fund transfers to balance and close books for 2018.
In other business:
- The council made an amendment to November’s meeting minutes regarding the annual fee for the town’s current IT provider.
- The council approved the continuation of the Claypool Police Department’s annual subscription to Adobe.
- Sanders said officers responded to 232 calls in November. Reserve officers put in a combined total of 168 hours.
- The council’s next meeting is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019, at the Claypool Lions Club building.
