Council holds short meeting

CARLINVILLE (July 5, 2018) – The opening city council meeting for July took all of about eight minutes Monday night.

In short work, the council went through a light agenda.

Three of the council members – Beth Toon, Cindy Campbell and Sarah Oswald were not present.

The council approved a first read of the salary ordinance.

Salaries of city officials were changed and amended, including the IT Coordinator at a salary of $200 per month; the lake manager at a salary of $23,600 per year; Lake Co-Host with a salary of $13 per hour; and Deputy City Clerk with a salary of $16.09 per hour.

The council approved the second reading of the NewWave Communications franchise agreement. The city will charge five percent for the NewWave franchise, which is what has been done in the past. It is simply a renewal of the contract.
