At a meeting of the Galt Board of Aldermen, three members¬†took the oath of office.
They are Victor Tunnell two year term in the north ward; George Griff two year term in the south ward; and Bill Jackson for a one year unexpired term in the south ward.
A motion was made to change the Galt ordinance to Aldermen at Large with¬†the designation no longer of a North or South ward Aldermen. The ordinance¬†will be presented for a second reading and voted on next month.
A new contract has been signed with KCP&L. City Clerk Mary Young noted there’s a 70 percent increase over the next five years which, she stated, will¬†be passed on eventually to electric customers of Galt.
Any action about the raise in costs was tabled until the next meeting of the board of aldermen at Galt.
