Council sets move-in date for Emergency Services Facility
By Kim Edward Adams

Saturday, April 21 will be the “move-in” day for the new Jesup Emergency Services Facility according to Mayor Larry Thompson. Thompson announced the date at the Council’s April 3 meeting. By that time the “punch list” of final construction items inside the building should be complete, and the interior cleaning should be finished. The council hired Kane Kleaning of Fairbank to do the final interior building cleaning for $700 prior to the move-in date.

Boy Scout Shelter

The Boy Scout Shelter in Land-O-Corn park on Young Street will be re-roofed and renovated following approval of two projects by the council.

Justin Leach plans to re-roof the shelter as his Eagle Scout project. His Scout Troop 95 of Jesup will renovate the building. Both projects should be finished before Farmers Day which is July 5-7 this year. The Scouts raise the bulk of their annual funds each year through selling food at this shelter during the Farmers Day celebration each summer. The council approved funding for the boy scout renovation project up to $2,800; and approved funding materials for the roofing project for Leach for up to $3,500.

T&K Developer agreement

Following a public hearing the council approved a development agreement with T&K Developers, LLC to develop residential lots on Benson-Shady Grove Ave. just south of the intersection with 939/South Street.

Replacing Police Vehicle

The council will meet in a work session to hammer out details about a proposal by Police Chief Josh Evans to trade in one of the police department’s Tahoes.

Darren Engbretson, a former fireman here, was accepted to return to the volunteer department. Fire Chief Andy Trumbauer reported that two civil defense sirens were not working.


Full depth concrete patching will take place in Jesup. The council approved a $50,000 contract with Midwest Contractors. This will include removing broken areas of concrete streets and replacing the broken section with new concrete.
The council also approved a $52,800 contract with K & W Coatings, to paint the water tower.
