During their meeting on Tuesday, March 10, the Fifty Lakes City Council unanimously agreed to purchase three new stainless bar tops for the patio of the city's liquor store, the cost of which totals $2,270 with installation, according to draft meeting minutes.

The council also approved the installation of DirecTV in the bar with a two-year contract, removing the current service provided by Emily Cable TV. The switch will reportedly save the city roughly $600 over the next two years.

In other action, the council approved a 50 cent pay increase for maintenance worker Bob Wallin, who has been working for the city since October 2013. The increase is retroactive to Jan. 1.

The council also agreed to to begin advertising the sale of its F250 fire truck, with sealed bids to be opened at the April council meeting.

Council members agreed to allow staff members wanting to attend LMCIT Loss Control workshops on April 24 and 25 to do so with hourly wages paid and mileage to be reimbursed.
