The Auburntown City Council met Tuesday, January 3, 2012 at 6:00 PM for their regular monthly meeting. Mayor Turney and all Councilpersons were present except Rita Davis.
The previous month’s minutes were presented for approval by the City Recorder. The minutes were approved as presented without correction.
The financial report ending December 31, 2011 was reviewed and approved without exception. The balance on this date was $45,884.47.
The branch library here in Auburntown has made a request that the broadband speed of the computers be increased from 1M download/512 upload to 6M download/2M upload. The motion was made and passed to grant the request resulting in a $40.00 monthly increase in cost.
The mayor reported that he has contacted a vendor regarding the repair of and possibly purchasing additional Christmas lights for the city.
Josh Davis, representing the Volunteer Fire, requested that the City repair three dysfunctional City fire hydrants at a cost of $2,500.00. Since this cost is not included in the budget for this year, the City decided to have two of the most critical hydrants repaired. The funds will be transferred from another item the Fire Departments desired and put the original desired item on hold for the present time.
The meeting adjourned at 7:45 PM.
Winfred Gaither, City Recorder
