The Perry City Council met Monday evening in regular session.
The meeting started with a report from City Administrator Sven Peterson that the sally port project for the police station is progressing well. The skeleton of the building is up and in the next month the contractors will put up the skin and finish work on the inside. Bolton and Menk representatives also updated the progress of the soccer complex, saying the seeding is nearly completed, and the new contractor J&M Landscaping has done great work so far. During mayor and council comments, they discussed a visit from the Department of International Affairs, which was complementary of Perry, and the turkey vulture problem that persists in the City.
In old business, the Council approved accepting a bid from the Elder Corporation for work on the Willis Avenue bridge over Frog Creek. They also reopened discussion on accepting a bid from EJM Pipe Services for the sanitary sewer improvement project, this time accepting their bid due to the need to expedite the completion of it. In new business, they approved resolutions including: the appointment of Amber Green, who attended the meeting so the Council could meet her, to the Perry Zoning Board of Adjustment; setting the time and date for the 5th annual Safety and Employee Appreciation Day as Wednesday, October 25th from 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Perry Fire Department; a pay request for JAS Concrete for work completed on the sally port project; and the City’s contribution to the “Welcome to Perry” packages.
