Emergency generator for the Thurber Municipal Building


Fri, Jul 13th, 2012
Posted in Chatfield Government

By Karen Reisner

Dan Jaquith explained to the Chatfield City Council at their July 9 meeting that four proposals had been received from electrical contractors to install an emergency generator in the city municipal building.

The low bid from Southeast Electric, Inc., Chatfield, was accepted. Seventy-five percent of the total of $53,978.36 for the 150 KW generator and related expenses will be paid with a FEMA grant; the balance of about $13,500 will be paid by the city out of it’s General Fund.

Fire Bell

City Clerk Joel Young reported that Fire Chief Keith Bradt and the department want to make some improvements to the historic fire bell display. A design was presented at a Public Services Committee. It was proposed to remove the existing planter and replace it with a memorial. The plan was to raise funds for the improvements by selling pavers with names engraved, sponsoring a raffle, and by asking for support from local service organizations.

Young said they didn’t plan to use pull-tab revenue or tax dollars for the estimated $15,000 cost. There were questions about the history of the installation of the planter and the proposal for names on the pavers. Councilor Paul Novotny asked if some past firefighters names would be on the pavers and others would not? Also, will the names be on the pavers for just the life of the pavers? Novotny said he wanted to preserve the bell, but maybe it would be better for the city to contribute.

Councilor Josh Thompson was also concerned about who would be recognized and maybe it would be better to find other ways to get funds and recognize everybody.

The council decided it should be looked into more, but approved the location and the concept.

Other Business In Brief

•The expenditure of about $2,500 was approved to repair a sluice gate or valve for flow control.

•A slate of nine election judges was approved for the upcoming elections.
