The Macon City Council held its monthly meeting in the City Council Chambers on Tuesday evening. There was no old business, so the council jumped right into new business.
The Macon Municipal Utilities received a grant from the Missouri Intergovernmental Risk Management Association (MIRMA) for their participation in the associations risk management awards program. The city was reimbursed $679.80 for purchasing fall protection equipment for its bucket trucks. This equipment will help prevent serious injuries and fatalities.
In addition to this, two ordinances were approved. First, the FAA was concerned about the gas mains located west of the north turnaround at the Macon Fower Memorial Airport. The ordinance amends the removal and relocation of these mains. The second ordinance approved the Enhanced 911 Board.
During the Administrator's report City Clerk, Vicky McLeland, discussed the utilities audit process that took place Tuesday. "Everything went well," said McLeland. "We scored in the high 90s—Can't get better than that!"
Mayor Dale Bagley expressed his excitement for 2013. "Lots of things are going on in Macon for 2013 that we can all be really proud of," said Bagley. "It will be a great improvement to our community."
