Wykoff taking bids for community center updates


Mon, Nov 10th, 2014
Posted in Wykoff Government

Wykoff City Council approved a pay request for $572,478.93 towards the new wastewater treatment plant. The council was informed the plant should be up and running on December 5, 2014. This date, of course, could change if complications occur.

L&L Grain requested an exchange of their water meter for one with a larger pipe. The council did agree to the exchange, however L&L will be responsible for the difference in price for the larger meter.

Fire chief Wade Baker informed the council the Wykoff Fire Department had received a grant that will be used towards the purchase of grass fire turnout gear. The council agreed to the additional $1,845 expense, beyond the grant, to make the purchase possible. Baker also addressed the council concerning the purchase of an all-terrain vehicle. Baker had a contract in hand that included a warranty totalling $24,906.49. A motion was passed to purchase the ranger by the council.

Councilwoman Larson addressed the council with a request from the Wykoff Area Historical Society. The group asked for monies to be used to maintain Ed’s Museum, a long time landmark in Wykoff. It was decided there were no funds in the city’s budget to use towards the request.

The council moved on to the Wykoff Community Center updates that had been previously discussed. It was decided the city would get quotes for the work needed, which includes new carpeting, updating the restrooms as well as sanding and finishing the hardwood floors.

Wykoff City Council will meet again on November 13 at 7 p.m.
