The Winamac Town Council this week performed some appointments necessary for the new year, but according to Town Manager Jim Conner, no big changes were made. He said the yearly appointments for the department heads were made with no changes, and several appointments were made to local boards, the planning commission, zoning board and other boards – also with no major changes.
Conner said the council also accepted a bid from White’s Building and Excavating for $91,000 to repair damage done to several roofs during last summer’s hail storm. He said the steel roofs can be repaired at any time, but the rubber roof on the town office will have to be repaired later, when the weather improves.
He said the council also reviewed quotes for pickup trucks for the water and street departments, but no decision was made. Conner said the council is also looking into the possibility of purchasing a new wheel-loader for the utility departments, but they will need to get more information to spec out what they are looking for and request bids in the future.
