MUNDAY—The Munday City Council had a third reading on the 2020-2021 Operating and Enterprise fiscal budget and approved it after adding an amendment during its regular monthly meeting Tuesday night.
After hearing from Police Chief Chris Mendoza that patrolman Ryan Thrash had resigned to go to work for the Knox County Sheriff, the council decided to amend the budget to reflect paying a salary of $29,000 to patrolman Paul Davis instead of $35,000 originally intended for Thrash. This amounted to a $1,000 pay hike for Davis.
“We’ll both be working a lot more hours,” Mendoza said, “The hunt starts again.”
The council approved the EDC B Board’s grant of $15,000 to the Lake Creek Recreational Association for a fairway mower.
No action was necessary on an item about having a RV parked on a commercial property after the council learned that the problem had been solved.
The council OKed a $12,000 bid from Matthew Ray Prickett of Eastland for a trust property in Munday, but rejected other bids from Cheap Homes Florida.
The following agenda items were tabled:
*Allowing Munday Nursing Home to allow chickens to be fully encaged as therapy animals:
*A request from Ketter Aerial of Olney to rent property at the City Airport;
*Establishing water and sewer rates for residents outside the city limits;
*Consideration of the service contract with Republic Service for garbage.
Travis Floyd provided the council with updates from both EDC boards.
