The Panora City Council met in regular session on Jan. 22. Brenda Dudley provided the council an annual update on services provided by Midwest Partnership.

Resolution 24-02 was discussed. It proposed to accept the resignation of Mickell Gerth from the Panora Library Board and to appoint Alli Halsey to fill that vacancy.

“We have a wonderful board, and a little bit of turnover,” Mayor Curt Thornberry said.

The council voted unanimously to approve the resolution as described.

The council discussed Resolution 24-01 regarding a purchase agreement with New Way Ford for the purchase of a pickup truck for the fire department. The council voted to approve the resolution as submitted.

There was discussion about Resolution 24-03, levying sidewalk assessment for parcel 0001317700.

“This is for the Chambers’ residence on Clay Street,” City Administrator Lisa Grossman said. “It was a voluntary assessment. They asked that the work be done by the City when needed.” The resolution was approved unanimously.

An Electric Budget Committee meeting was scheduled to begin immediately after the city council meeting.
