Wellston City Council studies increased appropriations, more during Aug.15 meeting
When meeting in regular session Thursday evening, August 15, the members of Wellston City Council gave first readings to ordinances which increased appropriations in two funds.

The first, Ordinance No. 4179, added $5,209.36 to the Cemetery Fund. The additional money is necessary to pay part-time salaries and related expenses including fuel. Safety/Service Director Fred Snider said the additional funds will come from revenue generated in the cemetery. This ordinance was introduced as an emergency, but there were not enough council members present to pass it as such so it received a first reading.

The second ordinance, No. 4180, added $1,230 to the vehicle maintenance line item in the Fire Department Fund. Acting Fire Chief Ryan Pelletier said when the budget was approved, he had only $4,000 in the line item for vehicle maintenance. In the time since the passing of the budget two hydraulic cylinders went out and had to be repaired and money is needed to service three trucks. This ordinance received a first reading.

Holzer Medical Center

Other Business

• Safety/Service Director Fred Snider reported 6 new ADA Ramps would be installed beginning at the end of that week. Mayor Connie Pelletier said that work is being done by city workers on city time which is saving the city a lot of money since the city does not have to pay prevailing wage salaries. The ramps have to be installed before a paving project on St. Rt. 93 can be started. She said that project will be done in 2014 or possibly earlier.

• Acting Fire Chief Pelletier also serves as the city zoning inspector said 7 new building permits had been issued in July.

• Mayor Pelletier said a retirement notice had been received from Fire Chief Tom Helm.

• She also said 2 or 3 people have medical conditions which require they have water. This issue was given to the Health and Safety Committee, but Pelletier said those with medical conditions will not be disconnected if they become delinquent in their payments until the issue is studied further.
