The Kemmerer City Council met on Tuesday, Nov. 12, its meeting pushed back from the regular Monday time because Veterans Day fell on Nov. 11.

To begin the meeting once regular business was complete, Officer Josh Hagler of the Kemmerer Police Department was called before the council and recognized with the 10-year service award. Council members thanked Officer Hagler for his dedicated service to the city of Kemmerer, and Councilwoman Kelly Blue presented the award. Officer Hagler's family was in attendance for the award presentation.

For the first item of new business, the council discussed the selection of a contractor for janitorial services. The city received one bid for the contract, which covers cleaning of the Recreation Center and City Hall, among other city facilities. The bid was submitted by the current contractor, and City Administrator Rebecca Davidson recommended that the council accept the bid.

The contractor is currently paid $18 per hour by the city, but they are seeking an increase to $22 per hour for the next contractual year. Once satisfied that the increased rate will fit into the city's budget, the council voted and unanimously approved acceptance of the bid.

The only other item of new business to come before the council on Monday evening regarded the water master plan for the South Lincoln Industrial Park. Discussion was focused on approving the contract to hire Sunrise Engineering to complete a study on the area's options for water access; the proposed cost for the completion of this study is $12,700.

The council unanimously approved the contract between the city and Sunrise Engineering, which hires the firm to compile a report on the options for providing water access to the industrial park and the estimated costs to do so.

The study will begin soon, and the plan is for preliminary work to be complete by early December. The target date for completion of the full report is Dec. 20.

City Administrator Rebecca Davidson began the comments period by announcing this year's Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony. The ceremony will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 2, in Triangle Park, where decorations can already be seen going up.
