Maintenance and equipment were on the agenda at London city council’s Oct. 2 meeting.
Council approved the transfer of $3,000 from the general fund into the street rotary fund to mow neglected residential proper-ties. The cost of mowing will be applied to the taxes of those residents.
The city will spend up to $20,000 to replace the police chief’s car. The old one lost its transmission.
Council authorized an appropriation of $10,000 for maintenance and service of the boiler system at the Community Center complex on Walnut Street. For the center to receive state certification to operate, the system must be in working order.
In other news about the community center property, Steve Hume, safety-service director, reported that Brightway Institute is almost ready to acquire the majority of the Walnut Street property. The organization will offer higher education with a vocational focus. Hume said the property transfer should be ready for council approval in 30 to 60 days.
The next regular council meeting is at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16. The finance committee will meet at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 13. Both of these meetings will take place in council chambers, 6 E. Second St., London. The community center committee will meet at 6 p.m. Oct. 23 at the center.
