A variety of items filled the agenda for the Randall City Council when they met recently, including talking with several visitors to the meeting.
One visitor was Brad Cutler of MIDAS Council of Governments, who came to visit with the council about the GIS project to map the town’s infrastructure in a permanent record. There is a grant available to help with the cost, if Randall qualifies.
Another visitor was Steve Butler, chief of the Ellsworth/Jewell/Stanhoipe Police Department. The council is looking into more police coverage in town and asked Butler to come to the meeting to answer their questions. Before committing to a permanent arrangement with the EJS Police Department, the council discussed a trial period of several months, but took no action.
The council heard an update on progress in remodeling the former bank building into a new city hall. Plans are for it to be used for a polling place next month. The Randall Community Club has donated $1,500 for furniture and appliances in the new city hall and plan to hold their meetings there.
In other business, the council voted to use municipal infractions as a resource for civil actions. The fine for the first offense will be $750, with a $1,000 fine for the second offense.
The council also approved ordering new street signs from Prison Industries, at a cost of approximately $625.
