City Administrator Happy Welch reported that bid openings were coming up for sidewalk replacement and city hall/board room remodeling, both on May 16, during last Thursday’s Ste. Genevieve Board of Aldermen meeting.
Welch said the street seeping schedule would soon be available on the city’s GIS page.
Welch and Assistant City Administrator David Bova will attend a Missouri Department of Homeland Security ransomware tabletop event this Thursday in Cape Girardeau. It is a training exercise in how to deal with the computers being infected by ransomware.
Fire Chief Kenny Steiger reported that the department responded to 23 emergency calls in April, giving them 81 for the year, up 10 calls from this time a year ago.
Volunteers are still needed to form an applicant list.
Steiger said he recently found out the $43,000 grant he had written for new radio equipment was approved. He is making a second request to the board to order the radios, since their price has increased since the purchase was initially approved,
He will also apply for a grant to upgrade held radios.
Steiger announced that an 18-year-old female has applied for the force. He said he has been hoping to recruit more young members.
Mayor Brian Keim congratulated Steiger on being named Community Service Award winner at the annual Chamber of Commerce Gala.
Bova reported that a planning and outreach grant obtained by the Heritage Commission has been signed.
He also reported that 14 occupancy/building inspections were issued, along with six building permits.
Two bills passed on second reading. One authorized the city to write off uncollectible water/wastewater accounts. The other approved dedicating a portion of Division Street to the city.
