DEPARTMENT HEADS REPORTS
Mr. Jean was present but had no business to present. Mr. Huckleberry asked what they found out about the generator after we had a power failure earlier in June. Mr. Jean said there was a part that wasn’t functioning and it was fixed the day after our June 18 BOW meeting. The generator is now operating fine.
Chief Cole was present and spoke about efforts to enforce ordinances. Each police officer has been assigned a designated section of the city that they are responsible. Mr. Huckleberry asked Chief Cole if all ordinances were going to be enforced and he confirmed that they would.
Mr. O’Farrell and the Mayor discussed that the Aerial truck will have to be moved out of the bay and parked elsewhere when the small section of McDonald street is worked on to remove and re-lay the brick.
Mr. Dismore was out of town.
Mayor Shepherd received an unsolicited bid from Bieneman Construction (the owner of this company owns the building next to 207 Perry St.) to demolish the building at 207 Perry St. This prompted the BOW to discuss soliciting formal bids on this work.

Mr. O’Connor said he would prepare the invitation to bid. Mrs. Stoll will see that it is published in the local newspaper.
