Tammy Rogers presented Disability Awareness award

Roy Kenna, representing the Winslow Committee on Disability Awareness, presents Tammy Rogers with her Most Outstanding Disability Awareness Person of the Year award.

Also at the meeting, council held a public hearing about how the Winslow Police Department would use their recently awarded Local Law Enforcement Block Grant.

Police Chief Stephen Garnett informed the council the $13,526 and the required $1,503 match by the city would go to pay the overtime the officer will start to accumulate when the department gets a new program underway.

The program is aimed at fighting the problems within the “transient community,” such as fighting and doing damage. Officers will be patrolling more at night and the money will be used to cover their overtime costs.

Council approved Ordinance No. 897, which sells Lost 55, 56, 57 and 58 of the Winslow Airport Industrial Park to James T. Stewart. He plans to build airplane hangars on each of the lots or to building two large hangars that cover the areas.

Council approved Ordinance No. 899, which leases the former Weather service building at the airport to Medical Air Transport for five years.

Council also passed Resolution No. 1236 which authorizes the submission of an amendment of the Community Development Block Grants .

The amendment takes the renovation fund and the equipment fund the United People Who Care Organization received and combines them into one large amount for the moving of their newly acquired portable building.

They will also be able to use the money to ready the building for use by the kids.

On the consent calendar, council took the following action:

• Approved the appraisal of properties in Downtown Winslow and approved a time extension of one year to Phillip Bruchman for his downtown building.

Bruchman’s extension was amended to exclude the requirement he inform council of the building’s intended use. He is required to provide the city with a proposed renovation/stabilization time line.

• Approved the transfer of funds for registration of the landfill and disposal fees.

• Authorized the purchase of 9-1-1 equipment, upgrades for the radio console and furniture for the police department.

• Waived occupational license taxes for the vendors during the Christmas Parade and authorized the reimbursement from council’s Special Events Account to pay for the parade’s expenses.

• Awarded a contract to McCauley Construction of Winslow for improvements at McHood Park.

• Awarded a contract with Charlie Hancock Building of Winslow for reroofing the airport terminal, the Last Resort Cafe, and the weather service building.

• Authorized the signing of a landing agreement with the U.S. Forest Service.

They also approved payment for various Weed and Seed community projects.
