During the regular meeting, Mayor Ray Bontrager reported that he is in contact with the local State Emergency Management Agency agent in order to purchase a new siren if grant money would be available.

Visitor Wayne Scott told the council he was in contact with Kansas City Power and Light. The first phase of a lighting project should be ready by Thanksgiving.
