WELLINGTON — Just a reminder that at its July 6 meeting, the Wellington City Council amended the Code of Ordinances to allow residential customers to take one load up to 10 cubic yards, to the landfill free of charge when presenting their current month’s water bill at the gate. Simply keep the top section of the bill for this purpose.
Items excluded in the free service are tires, construction/demolition, roofing materials/shingles and dead animals.
City Manager Jon Sessions says the council simply wants to do this to help the citizens of Wellington.
Those present at the July 6 meeting at 6 p.m. were Sessions, Mayor J. D. Hamby, Councilmen Brent Martin, Jimmy Cantu, Jr., Kenneth Warren and Larry Adams. Councilman Brandon Ward was absent. City Secretary Sherrie Dunlap attended as well.
Hamby opened the Public Hearing on the 2019 Consumer Confidence Water Quality Report at 6:02 p.m. No citizens attended the hearing which closed at 6:03 p.m.
The Council approved the minutes and bills as presented with Martin abstaining from any discussion or approval of items relating to Jim’s OK Tire Store.
Sessions reviewed the Financial Statement with the council. The council reviewed the Quarterly Investment Report ending June 30 and filed its semi-annual Candidate/Office Holder Finance Reports.
The council voted to engage Foster & Lambert, LLC Certified Public Accountants for the FY 2019-2020 audits.
Sessions informed the council that the process of negotiating a contract with the architects on the Senior Citizen’s Center Project is ongoing at this time.
Hamby reported that Collingsworth County Judge John James filed for an exemption on the mandatory face mask order since Collingsworth County had fewer than 20 active COVID-19 cases.
The meeting adjourned at 6:21 p.m.
