City Council to consider 911 center tonight

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

The Nevada City Council will have a full agenda when they meet tonight including the first reading of a proposed ordinance to establish the Western Missouri 911 Dispatch Center when they meet at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers in the Public Safety Building, 120 S. Ash St.

They will also be considering an agreement with the Missouri National Guard Training Site Command for the Nevada Fire Department to provide Haz-Mat response for any chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosive event at Camp Clark. In exchange the National Guard will furnish approximately $150,000 in equipment for the response team. The equipment will also be available for local responses as well. The city will be responsible for annual maintenance costs of about $1 ,000.

The Council will also be considering an agreement with Crossland Construction Inc., Columbus, Kan., for the design portion of the design-build contract for the City-County Community Center renovation projection.

Other items on the agenda include setting the fee structure for the enclosed shelter house at Marmaduke Park and the fees for using the Walton Family Aquatic Center.

They will also be considering an agreement with Son Light Landscape for the renovation of Earp Park.

The agenda also includes bids for reverse osmosis membranes for the water treatment plant, mowers for the parks department, concrete culverts for the public works department and medical carbon monoxide monitors for the Fire Department.

It isn't listed here, but the city council will also be voting on raising rates at the Walton Pool tonight. Why are they so worried about the small amount the pool loses each year, but do nothing about the $150,000 the golf course has lost each year, for at least the last 4 years?

I was told by a TOP city offical that the GOLF course is what MAKES people want to move here not the pool, if you believe that. Said they HAVE to keep it NO MATTER what it COSTS!!

I don't agree with that!!!! They really need to do something about the golf course. I've heard that the task force recommended the same things the park board did without the fee increase. It will be interesting to see if the additional advertising the task force and city thinks will work to improve revenue does increase revenue, I for one don't think it will. That being said I think the pool rates need to increase also. Every employee at that pool but maybe 2 make minimum wage, which went up 40 cents on January 1 and is going up another 20 cents on July 1. This was not taken into consideration when the budget was prepared according to the paper. These rates need to increase to cover the employee cost. I don't have a problem with the loss the pool has had in the past but I'm afraid if the fees don't go up a little this year to keep the loss at the current level they will come back with a large increase next year and that would be really bad. )=
