City council members, on a 3-0 vote, passed the recommendation of the police hiring committee and approved the nomination of Kyle B. Lucas as a new police officer.
Lucas is from Great Falls. He will start about mid-May as soon as he is released from the military. He has early-out paper work in motion, which he can do, being hired as a police officer.
Harold Olson of the EDC (Economic Development Corp.) was on hand to present a check to the city for $3,000. The funding will be used to purchase a new table for council members and chairs with rollers on them.

“We ran out of the pre-ordered fish at 5:30 p.m. because of an unfortunate order glitch, but the IGA allowed us to purchase two cases of battered fish to get us through the rest of the evening,” Bouma said.
The PMC Wellness Center budget does not support equipment purchases. All funding for new equipment or replacement of equipment for the Wellness Center comes from donations and fundraising, like the ‘Fish Fry.’
Michele Ghekiere won the $10 cash prize for most tickets sold prior to the event. She sold 22 Fish Fry tickets. PMC board treasurer and finance Committee Chairman Bernard Ries was the winner of the 50/50 pot worth $93. He donated that money back to the PMC Bridge Restoration Project.
