Delta Village Council began their regular meeting on December 5, at 5:30 p.m. All in attendance stood for the Pledge of Allegiance followed by Matt Boyd from Trinity Lutheran Church praying over the meeting.
Minutes from the previous meeting on November 21 were approved by council.
Village Administrator Brad Peebles gave his report and shared, “the annexation for the 534 acres takes effect on Wednesday.”
Peebles added to his report and stated, “we opened up bids for the Fulton County Water system.”
After receiving two bids, which are both lower than budget for the project, council will have sixty days to approve one.
Finance Director Stephanie Mossing asked for approval of invoices as presented, which were accepted by council.
Kevin Heban gave his report stating, “as a result of the executive session last week, we scheduled a meeting for December 16 for the parties involved in our office. We will keep you posted with the results of the meeting.”
Delta Police Chief Nathan Hartsock asked council for permission to post for three part-time officers. As the budget already allowed for three, council approved the request.
The following old business items were approved with no discussion:
