Falls City to pave streets
Motorists driving through Falls City soon could notice smoother travel. The Falls City City Council voted July 16 to solicit public bids to pave:
•Irvin Street (from Maverick Street to Andrews Street)
•City Hall/library parking lot.
The city also will solicit bids related to the repair or replacement of a lift station off Irvin Street. Mayor Brent Houdmann said after the meeting that the station dates back to the 1980s and is in dire need of attention, especially because of the pending construction of a new Falls City Independent School District school building nearby.
In other business, the council received an unqualified -- or clean -- opinion of Falls City’s fiscal year 2013 books from Pleasanton-based accountant Wayne Beyer. Houdmann said Beyer’s only concern related to the dates on which the city chooses to average its sewer rates, which city staff were able to indicate were consistent with its internal policy.
“I am very proud of our city staff and council members,” Houdmann said. “They work extremely hard to save the tax-paying citizens of Falls City as much as possible, and at the same time keep our infrastructure in good order.”
