The Council discussed the crushed concrete. The contractors were requesting some additional funds due to the amount of time they were on the job, but failed to show up for the time given on the agenda, so due to the lack of a motion request, it was denied. 

The Council discussed cars in town.


Council discussed the watertower. Richard will contact Magure Iron to have them come fix the mixer pump. 

Council discussed the Purple Heart Highway. Due to signage, it was suggested to have Sanborn County apply for this because, if the City of Woonsocket applied, the city would have to remove the DARE sign from the city’s sign to put up the new sign. Rassel will discuss this with the Sanborn County Commissioners.

Council members discussed a request by DAKPAK. Tabled.


The Council set the Christmas party for January 24th at Skeeters.

Weber announced the following vacancies were going to be open for election. Mayor, Councilmember Ward I (two years), Councilmember Ward II (two years) and Councilmember Ward III (two years). Earliest date to circulate a petition is January 31.

Other business that was discussed included the bathhouse, pool repairs, storm drain lift station and streets.

With no other business to be discussed, motion by D. Foos, seconded by Rassel, to adjourn the meeting. The meeting was adjourned at 8:20 p.m.
