Harmony accepts street clock donation from Hanlon family

At their June 14 meeting, Pam Brink asked the Harmony City Council if they would consider covering the costs to install electricity and pour the pad for a street clock that she and her siblings, Susan Leonhart, Tom Hanlon, Greg Hanlon, and Dave Hanlon would like to donate in memory of their parents, Thomas and Esther Hanlon. The clock would have two faces and be installed near the tourist center. Brink researched the clock company and assured the council that they are very reputable, and their clocks are high quality. The clock comes with a comprehensive three year warranty. “Our consensus is that if you want to donate the clock, we’ll go ahead and take care of the rest.” Councilman Steve Sagen said. Brink thanked the council for their willingness to work with the Hanlon family to put up the street clock.

Several members of the Fire Relief Association were present at the meeting to discuss increasing the pension from $775 a year to $850 a year. The increase would not change anything for the city, as the fire department already has the funds available. In order to receive the pension, members must be on the crew for at least 10 years, and then another 10 years to receive the full pension. They are eligible when they turn 55. The council approved the increase and thanked the crew for everything they do.

The building and maintenance department recently took possession of the newly purchased tractor and are looking forward to using it regularly. They are also working on replacing the park benches and already have several put together and installed.

The grit pump will be delivered and installed in mid-July, which is the last thing left to do for the wastewater treatment plant.

The EDA recently welcomed several new members and is working on improving the visitors’ guide. The bonding bill that would’ve helped with funding to extend the bike trail to the Iowa border did not pass in legislature. The EDA will continue to look for other funding options.

The park board is considering painting lines on the tennis courts for pickleball, a game that combines racquetball, tennis, and table tennis. There are members of the community who play the game, so would appreciate the lines being added.

Part-time Harmony Library worker Becky Hoff is resigning at the end of July. The library board will begin searching for her replacement. They are also l .....
