We are preparing to apply for a Sparks Recreational Grant to replace playground equipment at both parks.
Trunk and Treat is set for October 15th at Sutherland Park from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
We thought we had a tentative agreement with the Clerical Union but they came up with a new contract. We will be meeting again tomorrow.
Next meeting we will have two contracts in our agenda packet. This is related to EMS, and the millage for Ambulance Service. It’s a county wide millage.
The second contract would be for Tri Hospital. I will try and get more clarity for these contracts.
The newsletter is done and will go to the printer tomorrow.
We received a little over 100 applications for the clerical position and we narrowed it down to the top eight.
The ballots came in yesterday and we have been working to get them out.
