The Delta Village Council held their meeting on Monday, October 3rd. The meeting began at 5:30 p.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer.
Council first moved to approve the minutes from the September 19th meeting.
Following the approval of minutes, the mayor read a letter aloud from council member Michael Tanner.
The letter stated the intention of Mr. Tanner to resign from the village council due to the purchase of a new home that takes him out of the village limits.
This resignation is to be effective October 3rd, 2022. Council then moved to approve Tanner’s resignation.
Following the approval of his resignation, Tanner left his seat on council to take a seat in the gallery. Council next moved to appoint council member Arthur Thomas to the position of Vice-Mayor.
With no public wishing to address council and no correspondence to be heard, the meeting moved to the village administrator’s report portion.
Administrator Brad Peebles stated that, as indicated in his written report, one bid was received for the Fulton County Water Line Connection project.
This bid was from Vernon Nagel at an amount of $1,387,000.00. The original engineer’s estimation of a bid cost was $1,065,000.00.
With the bid received being 10% more than the allowable estimated cost, the recommendation given by Peebles to council was to reject the bid and submit it back out for re-bid.
Council moved to follow the recommendation for the water line project before then hearing a request from the finance director to approve invoices.
Following the approval of the invoices, council moved to approve the following legislative actions.
