Mr. Cumston noted that this came out of the Municipal Services with a
3-0 recommendation for an approval. The debt service for the notes is about
223-220,000 for a 20 year period. 2010 - revenues of 17,000.00, we
appropriated 91,273.65 — we used out of the General Fund, 73,458,000. We
no longer appropriate this money for the pool. Operating profits outside the

debt service will be given back to the General Fund. We won't be funding the
pool this year out of the General Fund. Maybe some start up money. The
hospital lease will be in 202 or 203 this year. A 5 week schedule — we predict
a 8-10,000.00 — still be considerably less than in 2010. We stretched the
bonding out for 25 years, and save the GF of about 75,000 a year.

side with Astro Pool at $1,588,900.00 — lowest and best bid submitted. The
Parking lot — 114 spaces, with 4 handicap spaces. The alternate which would
be the north parking lot, additional 84 spaces. The cost for that was
79,000.00. I stated Tuesday, there are some things that are in the works to
hopefully do the parking lot, will keep you informed as things get along.

MATTERS NOT ON THE AGENDA:

Mr. Cumston noted that the clerk had handed out some information on
Council on Aging — I'd like to have this available to us next Finance.
Mr. John Hampton, spoke about ruining his truck in an area that was
not barricaded, and that it was under construction. Spoke with the Mayor
and the Safety Director. This has been going on too long. Mr. Cumston said
that the City Insurance has been notified, it should fall back to the contractor.
Mayor Schertzer said that we think the contractor is the responsible party on
this factor. If we are liable, then our insurance company will tell us. Dr.
Gilsdorf asked if this contractor has been fully paid for the work that they
were doing. Mayor Schertzer said he has to check that out with the Engineer
Dept. Dr. Gilsdorf asked about a hold back option, can we do that. Mr.
Russell said yes we can. Mr. Russell said we will work with Mr. Hampton to
following up on this.
