This week the Wells City Council did performance reviews of City Administrator C.J. Hull and Police Chief Tim Brenegan and both got Exceeds Expectation ratings from the Council for their work in 2019.
Council Members also decided against a new budgeted snowblower, as the new on the City is looking at isn’t going to work. The Council is still mulling over whether to use funds for another piece of equipment or set aside the funds for another future snowblower.
The Street Department will be getting new refurbished radios, as Police Departments and Counties are getting new radios, some older ones are available and will be reprogrammed for the Street Department to use.
The Council also decided to move forward on Wellington Estates and getting the owner of the old hospital to do necessary repairs. They passed a resolution documenting code and nuisance violations and giving the owner 90 days to fix them. Damage from the 2017 fire has yet to be fixed and the Council wants to make sure the building, which has historical value, is preserved.
Council members also received an update on construction of the new liquor store, the City doesn’t have an exact opening date yet for the new building, but is hoping to announce the new opening date within the next couple of weeks.
