Canton discusses township bills

Posted in Government

The Canton City Council met for its regular meeting on March 2, 2011. Those present were: Donivee Johnson, Cindy Shanks, Ross Duckett, Carl Ernst, Jon Nordsving and Lolly Melander. Hank Selden was absent. Mayor Johnson called the meeting to order, and the minutes from the previous meeting were approaved as read by Lolly Melander. Lolly went on to present the council with the current bills and on a motion by Cindy Shanks, which was seconded by Ross Duckett, the council approved these bills as presented by Melander. The next item of business was water/sewer conerns. Jon Nordsving reported a loss of 644,320 gallons of water due to a main break.

There was nothing to report in old business, but in new business township billing concerns (Larry Soiney and Gary Gunderson) was briefly discussed. The township's scheduled meeting was coming up on March 8 when they will be discussing invoicing for the grading and snow plowing of roads. It was felt that the city should forgive the charges for half of the electric, phone and heat bill due from the township. The city decided to wait to hear back and invoice the township for mowing, water/sewer/light business bill, fire department meetings and drills, electric, telephone and heat for the fire hall. So, this business was tabled until the next month's meeting.

Having no other business at this time, Cindy Shanks made a motion to adjourn and Carl Ernst seconded it.

The minutes from the March meeting will be approved at the April meeting.
