At the December meeting of the Jewell City Council, Steve Robbins and Alan Wanklyn were on hand to discuss the future of the old James Clothing building which houses the Masonic Lodge.

David Knappert presented the monthly maintenance report. He asked the council for approval to purchase a new fire hydreant for approximately $1.500 to be installed on the east end of the 300 block of Buffalo Street. The council approved the request.

Amber Loomis informed the council that the city has received two grants, and the library was also awarded a grant through the Dane G. Hansen Foundation.

Discussion was held regarding the rental of the community center and whether or not to require a security deposit and have some type of contract.

A letter from KDHE was presented regarding failure to submit a water sample on time for the third quarter of 2017. Public notices will have to be issued because of the violation.

Zach Gibson of the Jewell Apartments board of directors said Jerod McMillan had taken care of various maintenance tasks which had been logged for the month.

It was questioned whether or not to continue advertising in the Hansen Directory at a cost of $154 per month. The council decided to discontinue the ad because Givson didn’t think they were getting many potential tenants from the ad.

The next meeting of the Jewell City Council is set for Tuesday, January 9.
