(Caneyville, KY) – Caneyville Commissioners spent time with annual housekeeping issues during their regular monthly meeting on Monday, May 13, 2013.
The commissioners agreed to have the Leitchfield Wastewater Lab perform water and wastewater analysis for the fiscal year of 2013-14. This was the only quote received and came with a price tag of $10,643.80.
Avery Flener, city employee, presented a revised proposal from Vern Shanklin with Kenvirons to repair a problem with the grit chamber at the wastewater plant. A cost estimate is being obtained by Shanklin. Commissioners were in agreement the problem needs to be resolved by Kenvirons as quickly as possible to avoid further issues. Kenvirons was the company who completed the recent upgrades to the city’s wastewater treatment plant.
Commissioner Connie Gootee made the motion to accept the lowest overall quote for chemicals from C. I. Thornburg for fiscal year 2013-14. Brenntag had also submitted a quote. Commissioner Scott Majors made the motion to accept the fiscal year quote for materials and supplies for the water and wastewater system from Construction Site Services which had the lowest overall bid. C. I. Thornburg had also submitted a quote.
The commission approved a motion to enter into the Trust Service Agreement with Kentucky League of Cities. This is contingent with the commission accepting the quote when it is received for health, life and dental insurance for fiscal year 2013-14.
The Caneyville Volunteer Fire Dept. asked the commission to consider new uniform options for department members. Commissioners advised the fire dept. members who were present to meet and decide upon a dress shirt and slacks and report back to the commission.
Police/Fire Chief Anthony Clark requested permission from the commission for the fire department to participate in the Crusade for Children. He said the department would have a road block at the intersection and would pick up any donations, but advised citizens that the fire department does not solicit donations door-to-door and warns the community to be cautious of fraud. The commission granted permission and voiced their appreciation to the members for their work and efforts in promotion the Crusade.
Chief Clark reported he continues to have issues with the radio system working properly. He said he has been working with central dispatch, who advised RCS Communications will be in Grayson County this week to attempt to remedy the radio issues and improve the system. In the past, RCS has suggested a repeater for this area at a cost of approximately $20,000, according to city minutes.
