Council will seek bids for surplus property

The Friona city council will meet in regular session Monday, March 11, 2013, at 619 Main St. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. All council meetings are open to the public. A public comments item is included at the beginning of each meeting.

After approval of previous minutes, the council will consider and take action on a resolution appointing the election officials for the May 11, 2013 city officers election, set the rate of pay for election officials, decide the maximum number of clerks for the polling place, and designate an early voting board.

Deadline for sign-up for the three expiring council seats was Friday, March 1, 2013. City manager Patricia Phipps advised that only three candidates signed up so a council election will not be necessary May 11. The three council members to be sworn in at the May 20 council meeting will be incumbent Charlie Pope and newcomers Alan Monroe and Bruce Fleming. Outgoing council members Jim Atwell and Mark Osborn decided not to seek re-election to the council.

The council will consider authorizing Police Chief Frank Mooney to seek bids to sell surplus property via an online auction at govdeals.inc. Property to be sold includes: 2005 police car, 1985 fire truck, 2000 Ford utility pickup, 2001 Chevrolet Blazer, two cages for 1990 Crown Victoria, one laptop computer w/bag, and one push bumper for 1990 Crown Victoria.

Consideration and action will be taken authorizing the city manager to solicit bids to purchase a new utility pickup for the city public works department.

Approval of accounts payable for February and the February financial statement will complete the agenda. Items mentioned here comprise a tentative agenda for the Monday meeting and are subject to change. The final official agenda will be posted on the front window of city hall 72 hours prior to the meeting.
