EMS building opening delayed
By Kim Edward Adams

The Jesup City Council appointed Kendall Kane as the ambulance chief, but withdrew the Fire Chief appointment from the agenda at their Jan. 3 regular meeting.

Mayor Larry Thompson suggested removing that appointment from the agenda at the beginning of the meeting. He later said that the Fire Chief appointment should be on the next meeting’s agenda, which will be Tuesday, Jan. 16.

The council approved an ordinance change allowing for taxes paid on the phase I area of the new West Echo addition be used to pay for the city’s portion of the cost of developing that area.

Library Director Becky Burke told the council about a Promethean board that was donated to the library.

The council scheduled their next budget work session for 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 11.

Mayor Thompson gave public recognition to the city employees who worked in very cold conditions on New Year’s Eve day and New Year’s Day to fix a broken water main.

Several items in the new Emergency Services building are needing to be re-done before the council accepts the building. This is delaying the move-in date for the Fire Department and Ambulance crew to the new facility.

Public Works Director Mike Fettkether was asked to prepare a presentation for the council about the new mapping software the city had acquired.
