Humboldt council discusses financial commitments

(KLZA)-- During the July 17 Humboldt City Council meeting much of the meeting time was spent in a contentious discussion on City finances. 

Council memeber Dolores Martinez suggested the City “slow down” on making financial commitments. The discussion centered on the finances and how financial commitments will impact the City.  

Discussion on recycling programs was also held.  Nancy Tomek-Wilcher provided information gathered from a Lincoln recycling company that provides several dumpsters as a drop-off site for recycling.  The  Council directed City Clerk Carol Glathar to contact Hamilton Recycling in Falls City to find out information on how they do recycling and the costs.  

A recommendation from the Tree Board to purchase nine shade trees from Grimm's Gardens for the camper side of the city lake was approved with a limit of $2,200. Council members also approved the expenditure of up to $200 for chemicals to control Bag Works  on trees in the Lake Park.
