Fourth of July celebrations were a part of the discussion at the Thayer City Council meeting June 9 at city hall.
Ron Cornelius of the Thayer Chamber of Commerce spoke with the council about the annual fireworks display and asked the council if they would furnish the port-a-potties for the festivities. The council agreed to do so.
Cornelius also told the council about the Chamber of Commerce banquet. The banquet was originally scheduled for June 15 but because of scheduling conflicts was changed to June 29 at 6:30 p.m. at Los Patrillos Mexican Restaurant.
On behalf of the Chamber, Cornelius asked the council if they would consider forgiving a debt the Chamber owes to the city on the Caboose. The council went into closed session to consider it. According to the city clerk's office, the council decided to defer the Chamber's payment for 2009. The Chamber will continue payments in 2010.
In other business, the council approved the destroying of old records and files. The old documents will be burned.
The signing of a Cintas uniform contract was also approved.
The council also approved advertising used machinery for sale. The machinery includes an Allis Chalmers 52 HD diesel and a Rhino six-inch disc cutter.
A list of supplies from each city department was reviewed and approved by the council.
The next Thayer City Council meeting is scheduled for July 14 at 7 p.m. in the city hall. The public is welcome to attend.
