" Published in the Adams County Record on April 18. 2012 P an s by Dale Fisk Over 200 people attended the annual Fireman's Ball on Saturday night. A festive atmosphere and the driving beat of good old-fashioned rock and roll filled the big bays in the Emergency Services Building that are usually occupied by fire trucks, ambulances and other emergency response vehicles. Kids of all ages couldn't help but dance, or at least tap their feet, to the great live music provided by the Woodbeez. Food servers were deluged as a line of hungry folks wrapped around the huge room from one end of the building to the other. When the 175 plates on hand were gone, more were sent for and the serving continued. At one point the hamburger supply was so low that an emergency run for more hamburger was in order. [No emergency vehicles were harmed (or used) in the Firemans' Ball production.] An exact count wasn't kept, but at least 200 meals were served,and more people arrived after that, and an unknown number came and went during the night. The folks behind the event said they thought the turnout was three times what it was last year. There were an abundance of door prizes, silent auction items and items in the live auction. After all the expenses were accounted for, the burnout fund earned $3,800 from the event. A recent house fire exemplified the need for the burnout fund. The victims of that fire, ]udy and Rusty Vanderpool, received a $200 check at the Fireman's ball, in addition to the help already supplied through the burnout fund. All in all, it was a night to remember, when a small community of neighbors gathered for a night of fun and food for a good cause. Council City Council by Dale Fisk At the council meeting at Council City Hall on Tuesday night, quite a number of issues were addressed--some which were resolved quickly and others that turned it into can, and will, take on any historic preservation projects that come up inside Council, as well as countywide. Dave Holland appeared before the council to a nearly two-and-a-half- follow up on his request hour session. The County Commissioners have requested that someone from the City Council be on the Adams County Planning and Zoning Council. No one immediately jumped at the opportunity, but one of the City Council from last month's council meeting to reduce water/ sewer connection fees on the lots he is trying to sell. The council agreed to reduce the fees. Carl Sandstrom appeared before the council with a claim for expenses he said were the responsibility of the city. members will most likely Water had backed up at take this on. The council decided to terminate the city's Certified Local Government organization, which has been inactive for a number of years. The Adams County Historic Preservation Commission his home, and ASAP had done some work to correct it. The council determined that the problem was in Sandstrom's plumbing, not the city's, and declined the claim. One of the most significant subjects of the meeting was the appearance of Cameron Arial, representing Zions Bank. Arial said the bank offers services as a broker to shop for the best interest rates and overall loan agreements for various municipalities, school districts and other entities with debt. He took the council through a detailed analysis of interest rates, amortization, and all the factors involved in refinancing the city's 2008 emergency loan for work on the sewer lagoon. The city still owes about $260,000 on this loan, with a payoff date of 2022. The bottom line, according to Arial, is that by refinancing through Zions the city could save $38,000 over the course of the loan, which is currently scheduled to be paid off in 2022. This amount saved is above and beyond any fees charged by the bank. Arial said if the Council decided to refinance through Zions by Friday (13th) they could join with several other entities that are already signed up, and thereby be part of a larger group for whom he is negotiating refinancing. A delay could mean changes in interest rates and other factors that would change some of the numbers Arial had shown the council, as the bank only does these refinancing arrangements a few times each year. The council took the information under advisement and decided to hold a special council meeting on April 12 to make a decision on the matter. (In that meeting the council decided not to refinance at this time, but will reconsider at a later date, with more time to weigh the pros and cons.) Mayor Gardner declared April "Fair Housing Month" in Council, and signed a declaration to that effect. The council decided to try a purchase order system for expenditures in order to stay current and increase accuracy on expense records. The council approved David Wilson presenteddates for a budget figures from two tire workshop (June 12) and dealers as to what it budget hearing (August would cost to replace the 14). tires on the city's Peterbilt The Council approved truck.
