The Thayer City Council met Nov. 12 where the new owner of the Bullseye addressed the council to tell them what is going to be done with the gas station.
Tana Cornelius told the council that the Bullseye will be converted into a Casey's General Store. The store will sell beer, but Cornelius said she was unsure whether or not the station would be selling hard liquor.
In other business, Larry Kellett spoke to the council about his research on who owns Risner Avenue between the McDonald's and Bobcat Station to find out who to get permission from to put stops signs up or possibly annex the street to be owned by the city. Kellett said he found out that Dennis Roberts is the owner and he was able to contact him about the street. Kellett said Roberts told him he was fine with turning the street over to the city. Before taking any further action, however, the council decided to meet with Roberts and the city attorney to see if there are any legal matters that need to be discussed.
The council opened bids on the well casing and corrugated siding and agreed to sell the items.
Engineer Rusty Doss talked to the council about the Two Mile Creek Bridge and suggested some bidders for the project to fix the bridge. The council decided to table the issue to discuss it more in detail in the future.
All department supplies were agreed on and the council went into closed session. During closed session Chief of Police David Bailey spoke to the council about a paid proposal for officers, which the council decided to table until December. The council also decided to do away with city employee comp time. Now, when comp time is earned, employees will be paid for it rather than take time off. The council also agreed to give all city employees a Christmas bonus.
Thayer City Council meetings are the second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. at city hall. The next council meeting is scheduled for Dec. 8. The public is welcome to attend.
