Guthrie Center SignThe Guthrie Center City Council met in regular session Monday.

The Council approved the first reading of an increase in wastewater rates for City residents. The increase is gradual over a five year period, with the first two years only being an increase of $1 for most residents. In the final year of the five-year period, the rates will increase by $2.22 for residents using 2,000 gallons or fewer per month. There are additional charges for those using more than 2,000 gallons.

The Council also approved a bid from Denco Highway Construction for a culvert replacement project on 1st Street. The bid from the Mingo-based company is $8,939.20.  Other action items included an amendment to the fiscal 2017 budget and two lawn mower purchases at $12,000 total after trade-in, a purchase that has already been accounted for in the City’s budget.

The Council also discussed possible insurance provider changes, the 28E agreement for police services with the Guthrie County Sheriff’s Office, and renovations to Mitchell Park. The next Council meeting will be Wednesday, May 30th, as the regular meeting time falls on Memorial Day.
