Galt Aldermen: New members sworn in, new contract signed with KCP&L

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.
