The Galt Board of Aldermen on April 14th reviewed the qualifications of engineering companies to do a study to evaluate potential improvements to the water system.
Benton and Associates from Kirksville were chosen. City Clerk Ashley Bonnett reports the company is to present a proposal at the next meeting, and the board will decide whether to go ahead with the company for the study.
Five companies responded to a request for qualifications.
The board does not know how much the study will cost. Partial funding for the study is to be paid for by a Department of Natural Resources grant. Bonnett notes the City of Galt may be eligible for a grant up to $30,000.
The oath of office was given to Mayor Jessica Gannon and Aldermen at Large Sierra Fletchall and Jason Grindstaff. They were incumbents. Their terms will be for two years.
