CARPENDALE – The Carpendale mayor and council are set to vote on the renewal contract for police services at their June 2 meeting.
The current council, along with candidates for the upcoming June election, met in a work session recently to review the contract with the Town of Ridgeley for police coverage.
“They were pretty pleased with everything except they want more reporting on what is going on,” said mayor Casey Lambert of the discussions.
In the past the police chief has attended the town meetings to present a report and the council would like that to continue and if a representative is not available that a report should be provided.
Due to continuing restrictions with COVID-19, the council has cancelled its May meeting due to limited spacing to provide adequate physical distancing by those attending the meeting.
The council reviewed recent damage to the sewer pump and residents are reminded that under no circumstances should towels, rags, paper towels, tissues, baby wipes or flushable wipes, diapers, sanitary/hygiene or other items be flushed down into the system.
It was also noted the town has received its new pump and motor for the water system. The additional equipment is maintained on site in the event of a malfunction in the current system as was the case earlier this year.
