Six issues relating to City of Pana lake lots were brought out at the Monday, July 23 meeting of Pana City Council. Three requests to change lot sizes were approved, and two different requests by others were denied.
However, those two situations were aired at a Tuesday evening meeting of the Community Operations Committee, with recommendations for approval.
Beyers Lake Line
The funds from the proposed sale of the city’s waterline to Beyers Lake, it was decided will be distributed with $97,650 to the Capitol Improvement Surcharge account, with the remaining $146,350 to a water meter replacement account. The money refers to the potential sale to Lincoln Prairie, a water company, which is awaiting a grant.
Because the lake, the city’s water supply, is two feet low, Alderman Glen Schneider recommended that everyone start conserving efforts for water use.
Bids were approved for Louis Marsch, Inc., $101,549.90 and Pana Limestone Quarry, $14,000, relating to street oiling.
The meeting adjourned at 7:54 p.m.
Pana City Council meets twice monthly. The next meeting will be at 7:00 p.m., Monday, Aug. 13 at the city hall. Meetings are open to the public.
A feature story about Lake Pana will appear in a future issue of the PN-P.
