In other news from the hospital board meeting on May 22, it was announced that JoAnne Cobb applied for and will receive a $15,000 grant for the ‘Memory Walk’ for the hospital.
At the last regular meeting of the city council, Public Works Director (PWD) Rich Anderson requested approximately $2,500 from the Genevieve Reiken Anderson Foundation (GRA).
He explained that the funds would be used for a new chemical testing scale, paint for the pool and repair to the Aqua-bot and manual vacuum at the swimming pool.
An issue with the pollen from the trees discoloring the paint in the pool was able to be solved, therefore the paint which had been ordered can be used next year.
