LINGLE – Maintenance Supervisor Larry Haeffelin is diligently working to prepare for winter, as reported at the Lingle Town Council meeting last week.
In the last few weeks, the maintenance department has been winterizing the pool and park and new doors have been installed in the park bathrooms. The town also fixed a primary meter connection at the school and will begin cleaning up the chip seal street project.
Haeffelin added the department submitted water samples for testing and all the results were good.
In other business:
• The council approved paying bills in the amount of $138,853.84.
• Town Attorney Greg Knudsen reported two legal hearings for collecting delinquent utilities went well; judgments were received and funds will be collected.
• Clerk-Treasurer Michele Sussex stated the final paperwork has been submitted for the railroad silent crossing. She added she will be working to get the carpet in Town Hall and the Senior Center cleaned in the near future.
• Mayor George Siglin suggested purchasing high-quality, used desks for Town Hall as the current ones are broken and worn out. The council approved of the new desks by unanimous decision.
• The next council meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 5 p.m. at Lingle Town Hall.
