The Lewisport City Council met in a brief council meeting last Thursday evening in the old library room attached to City Hall. A very light agenda greeted council members.
The main item on the agenda was approving a Kentucky Infrastructure Authority lease agreement resolution for the purchase of two trucks for the city. The resolution lease agreement totals $88,000 for the purchase of one truck for the police department, and one truck for public works. At this time the make and model of the trucks are to be determined.
Jason Roberts, Supervisor of Utilities provided an update on the public works department. He said public works installed 12 new services this year. In addition, the department plans to paint all of the fire hydrants in the city with epoxy paint over the next few months.
The council also approved last months meeting minutes, paid the claims and reviewed the monthly financial statements. Police Chief John Garner said the police department really did not have anything to report.
