The Marceline City Council met in regular session this week, with Mayor Jeri Holt absent. At this meeting, the council approved the sale of the revenue bonds that helped fund the new Marceline City Pool.

Larry Hart and Courtney Wegman of LJ Hart and Company presented the council with the sales options for the revenue bonds that were approved in the April 5, 2016 General Election. The Series 2017 Bonds were sold to First Bankers’ Banc Securities of St. Louis. Regional Missouri Bank purchased $755,000 of certificates on this bond, the Bank of Brookfield-Purdin purchased $110,000, and the remaining $135,000 were purchased by citizens.

City Manager Bob Green reported that he had been in contact with Advanced Disposal concerning the continued complaints of citizens who are unable to move their trash containers to and from the street for collection.

Green shared with the Leader several e-mails concerning this dialogue, and did receive an email from the city’s trash vendor. There is a form that must be filled out by a doctor and returned to City Hall for citizens to receive walk-up service from Advanced Disposal. Please contact City Hall to obtain this photo, and then return it as soon as possible to get the walk-up service for your home. To qualify, an individual must either be permanently or temporarily disabled.
