Harlan City Council approves issuance of bonds

News

April 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Harlan City Council Tuesday evening held a public hearing on the issuance of General Obligation Bonds. Hearing no comments from the public, the Council acted on approving a resolution which instituted the proceedings necessary to take additional action for the issuance bonds, not to exceed $2.5 million. A second resolution was also approved, pertaining to the direct advertisement for sale of $2.455 million in G-O Bonds, and approval of electronic bidding procedures. 

In other business, the Harlan City Council passed a resolution approving a contract and bond with Story Construction Company, of Ames for the Rotating Biological Contactor Disk Replacement as it pertains to the wastewater treatment plant. 

And, a resolution was approved to which would allow the Harlan Police Department back into the Social Security system. Back in the 1980’s, the Harlan Police Department was removed from receiving social security because they were put on IPERS. City Administrator Terry Cox told the board he had several meetings with officials at IPERS and they have indicated there is a remote chance the Social Security Administration may allow the Harlan Police Department officers to opt back into the social security system by a referendum process.

The resolution was approved but Cox said there is no a guarantee the department will receive Social Security but gets the ball rolling. The State must approved the resolution as well.
