The Raymond City Council met at 6 pm on Monday, June 1, where the council heard from the public to start the meeting ahead of the regular agenda.
A member of the public spoke to the council regarding speed bumps that the citizen was requesting be put in an alley between Commercial and Duryea streets, and First and Second streets. The resident complained of people speeding through the area, and how dangerous it was. A fellow citizen was in support of the action and it was mentioned that on numerous occasions they had almost been hit by speeding traffic. The citizen also told the council that they asked the police to try to catch speeders in the alley, but that the drivers never use the alley when there's an officer nearby.
"We can take a look at the petition and we'll have Public Works go check it out and we'll get their input," replied Mayor Dunsmoor.
Next on the agenda was the passing of an ordinance to vacate a portion of Wilson Avenue, next to the Stan Hatfield South Fork Industrial Park. The council also passed their annual contract increase for transfer station rates, going from $103.25 up to $104.68.
For the Treasurer's Report, the final phase of the regional waste water treatment plant was voted in.
"The engineers went out to bid for the South Bend Lagoon Decommissioning, and out of three bids, Rognlin's had the lowest bid, and they would like to have a motion from the council accepting Rongnlin's bid of $750, 984," said Raymond City Clerk Hester Gilleland.
A motion was made and approved to send the contract forward.
Councilman Randy Flemetis reported on the Kayak Day that happened this past weekend. "I think they only expected like fifteen or twenty people, but 60 people ended up attending."
The meeting adjourned after an Executive Session.
The next Raymond City Council meeting is scheduled for June 15, 6 pm at Raymond City Hall.
