The Emily City Council approved use of the city sewer system by three septic pump contractors, according to draft minutes for the Feb. 10 meeting.

The three contractors would have their deposits measured by the main lift station. They would then be charged $30 per thousand gallons of wastewater, and be expected to turn in weekly tickets for dumpage. The city has the authority to terminate this agreement at any time at the city's discretion based on pond levels.

In other business, the council:

• Approved purchase of new AED pads.

• Scheduled two public informational meetings Thursday, Feb. 26, regarding plans for the reconstruction of State Highway 6 through Emily. The meeting for businesses will be at 4 p.m. and the meeting for the general public will be at 5:30 p.m., both at city hall.

• Rejected an amendment to an ordinance that would allow procedures and enforcement action to be part of the property maintenance ordinance. City Clerk Christa Andrews apologized to Laura Leckband for naming her in previous discussions of the amendment.

• Learned the city hall cameras have been installed and are working.

• Allowed a proposal to replace the water cooler fountain in the hallway to fail. Additional pricing and options will be researched.

• Approved payment of $3,396 for emergency repairs to maintenance vehicles. The council also removed a limit on emergency vehicle repairs needed with approval of two council members and notification to the clerk prior to repairs.
