Aldermen make changes to meeting time, hear water quality concerns
During the Concordia Board of Aldermen Monday, Dec. 3, the board voted to change the start time of official meetings from 7 p.m. to 5 p.m. through the winter months and to the revisit the issue in April. The board had changed the time of a meeting previously due to a Chiefs football game being televised that evening and felt there were some benefits seen from the change.
The board also heard from a resident who had a water sample tested. City Administrator Dale Klussman stated the test results showed the chlorine level was good, but did not provide a lot of other detailed information. Klussman said he would like to take water sampled to another company to have more in-depth testing done. He said he believes there might be some “dead end” lines contributing to recent complaints of water smelling and tasting badly.
During his report, Mayor Michael Brown commended the street department for clearing the streets in a timely manner following recent snow events.
