Following the brief August meetings where minimal actions were taken and payroll was approved, the Gothenburg City Council met for their September meeting on Tuesday, the 1st.

The meeting kicked off with Will Rahjes sharing information on the Citizens Advisory Review Committee. Rahjes recommended that all meetings where projects are discussed the meeting minutes be documented and filed with the corresponding project file in case of questions and to refer to the minutes for actions taken.

The City of Gothenburg was awarded with a $5,000 grant designated to the Gothenburg Volunteer Fire Department to aid in payment for their new equipment on the department’s ambulances.

“I believe that someone on the department went after this award and they got it,” shared City Administrator Gary Greer, who also shared that Gothenburg is way under budget for the fiscal year. The next meeting is set for Tuesday, September 15, at 5:30 p.m.
