The Prescott City Council had a lengthy agenda for its Monday evening meeting, June 13, after its meeting in late May was cancelled due to the lack of a quorum.
The following public works agenda items were given unanimous approval by the board, which meant 6-0 votes as all members were present along with Mayor David Hovel: an $8,350 engineering study for curb and sidewalk replacement and improvement on Broad St. from the clock tower to the Pilot House on both sides the street; public engineering services for a street improvement project for Henry, Hampshire and James streets; the city’s wastewater treatment plant’s compliance maintenance report and an additional 15 Minute Parking stall on Orange St. next to St. Croix Liquors.
There was a 5-1 vote in the public works section of the meeting. Alderman Josh Gergen voted against a motion to give the Prescott School District no more than $1,500 in allowable water charges for irrigation of the ballfields on Dexter St. Gergen feels that Oak Grove and Clifton townships, which are also part of the school district, need to contribute to district projects used by all citizens of the district even if they lie the City of Prescott.
