The Trenton City Council last evening approved 18 appointments by the Mayor to city boards. Members also adopted three ordinances and heard reports from councilmen and city officials.
Three citizens received new appointments while 15 others were renewed. The actions came after Councilman Kenneth Ewing suggested that the Mayor's recommendations first come to the councils' administrative committee. Two of the new appointees will serve on the Park Board. John Dolan replaces Steve Perry who resigned. Gary Schuett replaces Marti Williams whose term ends this month. Kari Whitaker was re-appointed to the park board. Mike Johnson was named to the planning and zoning commission. He'll fill an unexpired term of Bill Ausmus after Ausmus verbally resigned.
Re-appointments include Jean Peace and Bob Gallup to planning and zoning; Stan Lowrey to building and nuisance board; Anita VonBurg, Gary Schuett, and Marcia Schroeder to the tree board; Mark Cole to board of public works; Cale Gondringer and Steve Hammond to the airport advisory board; Peggy Bradley and Stan Lowrey to the TIF commission; Sarah Maloney, Jim Ingraham, and Kathy Brewer for the historic preservation committee.
The city council approved an agreement with Burns and McDonnell Engineering to conduct a cost of service and rate study for T-M-U electric and waste-water departments. Also included is a financial projection and cash flow analysis for T-M-U electric, waste water, and water departments.
Also approved was an amendment to the state block grant agreement with Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission to allow another 51 thousand dollars for Trenton airport apron expansion including re-construction of the asphalt area near T-hangers, paving grass islands, and a small expansion to the south. The city provides over 26 hundred dollars matching funds on this phase.
