Ivanhoe Council meets May 9

by Emily Waldrep

Ivanhoe city council held its monthly meeting on May 9 at 7 p.m to discuss several topics concerning regular city maintenance.

First, the council discussed some of the repairs that will need to be done to Camelot Dam. The dam has needed repairs for several months, and the city has been busy pricing repairs and sending out bids. The council reported at the meeting that the prior bid would need to be pulled and a new bid would need to be sent out. After reworking the original bid estimates the council discovered that repairs would cost less than the initial estimate due to some changes made in repairs. The council voted to continue to move forward with the bidding process for Camelot Dam repairs.

Council also considered that the front entrance monuments in Ivanhoe would require some maintenance work.

"The repairs aren't just cosmetic at this point," said council member Tom Welch. "I volunteered that I would provide all the rubber surfacing for keeping down the weeds, and since then I have purchased all of it."

Council voted to find someone to do the repair work on the monuments.

The council also discussed crime in the city, which is down from last month. The city had 37 calls, including several fires and trash dumping. The city had 49 calls in April.
