North Webster Town Council passed resolutions pertaining to the Americans with Disabilities Act and were notified of the purchase of a new lift station pump during its meeting Tuesday at the North Webster Community Center.
Councilman Tim Hine and North Webster Utilities Manager Mike Noe attended a seminar for ADA requirements and one of the results was the passing of three resolutions to bring the town up to compliance.
The utility pump will cost $1,535 from Brown Equipment, Fort Wayne, a savings of $1,000. Its purchase was already covered in the year’s maintenance budget.
During his report, Police Chief Greg Church reported that Police Officer Clayton Reider had almost completed his training at Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. He also noted that 144 calls of service had been made in February incluing 34 agency assists for the EMS and fire department and 18 citizens assists.
Hine reported for the park board that he had met with the needed individuals about the sidewalk and piers to comply with ADA resolutions and that the musical entertainment for Music in the Park 2013 was already lined up due to the efforts of park board member Bevlyn Brown.
Attending the meeting were Noe, Church, Hine, Councilmen Lisa Strombeck and Jon Sroufe, clerk- treasurer Betsy Luce and town attorney Jack Birch. The next meeting will be 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, at the North Webster Community Center.
