Mayor asked for everyone to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.

Mayor’s Comments: We have made the move to the new City Hall. The Mayor encouraged the Board to walk around and see what is in place. Several items are not complete yet like the microphones on Board Table. The School will have Bond request on the April Ballot for a storm shelter. It will be a general use building next to the gym on the parking lot. There will be an Easter Egg Hunt at 10:00 am on Saturday, March 28th with the Assembly of God Church coordinating the activity. City Hall will post Agenda’s on the inside glass of the Police entrance. May need to look into new windows in the future. The Building Renovation is at $ 44,694.39 from Oct to Feb so far. There are still things we would like to do in the future. If you have heard rumors that the old Casey location is sold it has not. The Mayor was told by a source that the building will sit for one to five years after removal of the fuel tanks to make certain there are no EPA issues.

 

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION.

David Rauch with the Billings Historic Museum showed an example picture of the original Bank of Billings that is being completed for the display on the walls. The original stairway to the vault may become available to use in the Historical area. The owner would like a replacement for the stairs made out of wood. The group is looking into the cost of this replacement. David had a quote for glass display cases professionally made for about $ 7,000.00 however he found a store going out of business and can obtain 4 oak/glass display cases for a price of $1,775.00 may need to go up to $2,000.00 to refurbish some corners. Would like to know that the Board would approve of this acquisition.
