Problem solved but problem remains for City of Wykoff


Fri, Jan 24th, 2014
Posted in Wykoff Progress Edition

In an interesting turn of events, it was decided that Steve Bushman would provide consultation during the construction of the waste treatment plant for the City of Wykoff. Previously, Bushman had visited with the council and offered his services in December. The council was given a compensation plan to be reviewed at that time. Since then, the company Wykoff has hired, WHKS, to construct the new plant offered Bushman a job doing the very same thing. The good news is Wykoff will now have a consultant for little or no extra cost. There is a possibility that Bushman would be able to continue to consult after the project is finished.

While the stars aligned for the city to solve one problem, one still remains. Wykoff is still in need of a city maintenance employee with a class B license. Al Williams has long been the city’s maintenance worker and announced his retirement last November but has not been able to follow through with his retirement because the city is unable to find a replacement. In light of this, the council voted to restore Williams’ pay, up to $20/hour, until a replacement can be found.

Construction bids for the new waste treatment center will be opened on Thursday, February 27th at 3pm. If interested, bids can be brought to City Hall.

The council also passed 2014 town designations as follows: Security State Bank will be the official depository, Councilman Comstock is authorized to sign checks if Mayor Hare is absent. City Clerk Davis is authorized to make deposits and withdrawals concerning city accounts. Thomas Manion, Jr. was designated the official city attorney for Wykoff and The Fillmore County Journal was designated the official newspaper of the city.

Committee appointments were also designated at the January council meeting. Councilman Vreeman will handle streets, sewer/water as well as parks and recreation. Councilman Grabau will help oversee snow removal/sanding, streets and assist with parks and recreation. Councilman Comstock will advise with sewer/water and snow removal/sanding. Councilwoman Larson was assigned to community education and pest/weed control complaints. Larson, along with Mayor Hare, will also represent the Joint Trails Committee.
