The Governing Body of the City of Silver Lake met in regular session at city hall on Monday evening April 16, 2018 with Mayor Mack Smith conducting the meeting and the following Councilmembers present: Tim Kampsen, Heath Robinson, Tom Noble, Larry Ross (4) Absent: Nancy Bryant (1).

Motion was made by Councilman Ross and seconded by Councilman Noble that the minutes from the last regular session held on April 2, 2018 be approved.

Claim vouchers in the amount of $10,511.79 were submitted to council for appropriation. An ordinance entitled "An ordinance appropriating money to pay certain claims" was introduced and read at length. Motion was made by Councilman Noble and seconded by Councilman Robinson that said ordinance be accepted as read and was then placed on final passage by roll call of the following vote: AYE: Tim Kampsen, Tom Noble, Heath Robinson, Larry Ross (4) NAY: None. Ordinance was declared passed and was given No. 2393.

Council reviewed bids received from Sunflower Paving, Inc. and Bettis Asphalt & Construction, Inc. for the 2018 Street Repair Project, with Bettis Asphalt being the low bid. Final action on this project was tabled until the next meeting as Public Works Superintendent Taylor needs to get a firm price from Bettis Asphalt for some additional work that needs to be done. Luckman asked Taylor to provide him with the price by May 4, 2018 so he can prepare the final bid documents. Also, discussion was held concerning the condition of the alley behind the Silver Lake Bank. Mayor Smith will contact a representative from the bank about this matter.

Public Works Superintendent Taylor presented a proposal from Inland Portable Services, Inc. for visual inspection of the interior and exterior of the newer water tower. Council had approved this bid last year but the company was not in this area to perform these services. City Attorney Luckman was asked to review this proposal before final action is taken.

Motion was made by Councilman Noble that the Certificate of Deposit that matures at Silver Lake Bank on April 21, 2018 be renewed for a term of twenty three (23) months at an interest rate of 2.00 %. Motion was seconded by Councilman Ross and approved.

Council was reminded that the Silver Lake D.A.R.E. Graduation is scheduled for May 3, 2018 at 7:00 P.M.

Motion was made by Councilman Robinson to approve Kwikom’s Tower Lease Proposal for providing High Speed Internet in the Silver Lake area. This lease allows them access to both water towers at a monthly rate of $100.00 per tower. Motion was seconded by Councilman Noble and approved. It was noted that this proposal states that Kwikom will supply at no cost, internet service to a city building as designated by the council.

As soon as the weather is favorable, Delta Sweeping Co. will sweep the city streets as approved at the last meeting.

The next meeting is scheduled for May 7, 2018 at 5:30 P.M. The following meeting is scheduled for May 21, 2018 at 5:30 P.M.

With no further business to come before council, Councilman Noble moved to adjourn the meeting at 6:15 P.M. Motion was seconded by Councilman Robinson and approved.
