Woodland officials approve contractor’s bid for repairs

Despite requests for bids from other contractors, no other bids were received to make repairs to the Woodland Mills Civic Center within the past month.
Mayor Wade Carrington told aldermen Tom Menees and Waymon Reagan Monday night at least one of the contractors was personally asked by two separate city representatives to make a bid on the project.
With no other bids submitted, the board agreed to accept a previous bid received from Allen Searcy Builder Contractor. Repairs to be made include siding damaged from a vehicle accident, a door damaged from an act of vandalism, buckling floors and a wall which allows rainwater to seep into the building.
Reagan asked that the insurance company be notified so that the city’s insurance can pay for the siding and door damage.
After the meeting was opened with the Pledge of Allegiance by Carrington and in prayer by Menees, the board:
• Approved on first reading the county’s mitigation plan as updated.
• Learned $167 in property taxes is still owed from 2009 and $1,392 is owed from 2010. Property tax bills for 2011 have been mailed.
City recorder Thelma Green said she has been informed the city needs a policy dealing with unpaid property taxes. David Angerer with Municipal Technical Advisory Service will be contacted for sample ordinances.
• Approved September financial reports, including $8,239.66 in the refuse collection fund, $7,355.78 in the street aid fund, $563,948.43 in the sewer fund and $130,735.88 in the general fund.
• Set the business appreciation dinner for Dec. 5. The city’s monthly meeting will be held at 5:30  that evening, instead of its regular meeting night the following Monday.
• Agreed to purchase a shredder for City Hall to replace a broken one.
• Voted to place a stop sign at Sycamore and Cedar. It will replace a yield sign.
• Discussed other areas which need street signs and the need to have spare stop and yield signs.
• Held a moment of silence for the late Robert Nanney, who had been a Woodland Mills mayor.
• Set the next meeting for Nov. 14 at 6 p.m.
