LOGAN — Now open three days a week.

Since its reopening January 14, the Senior Center has had consistent crowds both Mondays and Thursdays when they are open for lunch.

Angela Winther, city administrator and clerk, gave a report of the numbers to the Logan City Council at their September 9 meeting.

She gave more recent numbers, like from this past summer. She said an average crowd was about 25 people per day. So far this fall, the crowds are up over 30 people per day.

Note: The City Council, after some discussion over the course of a few meetings late last year, decided they would run the Center under the “auspices” of the City of Logan.

With it doing well, the Center Board decided to ask the Council to approve adding another day it would be open for lunch.

It was approved unanimously. The day of the week will be Tuesdays starting in October, according to Winther.

In other news, the Council decided they would not be making a donation to the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation 9/11 NEVER FORGET mobile exhibit, which is going to be at the Applefest celebration this year.

Also approved was to purchase two items to purchase to replace the two that were damaged by the flooding this past spring:

*A pressure washer from Hotsy Equipment, out of Omaha, Neb. in the amount of $4,275

*A pump and motor for the salt brine machine in the amount of $2,905 from Dultmeier, also out of Omaha, Neb.

A bid to take down 10 trees in the city right-of-ways, five of which are in the city park was approved.

B&K Tree Service, of Woodbine, was awarded the project. The cost is $4,250.

The following resolutions were approved: Resolution 19-15 approving Fiscal Year (FY) ‘18-‘19 City Street Financial Report; Resolution 19-16 approving that the City will participate in the IPAIT, which stands for Iowa Public Agency Investment Trust; Resolution 19-17 approving the renewal of a lease between the City of Logan and Dennis and David Lovell for $500 per year regarding the city well field; Resolution 19-18 approving to reject all bids received for the ’19 Overlay Street Project.

Finally, a recommendation from the Logan Pool Bard to award the pool staff their end-of-the-season incentives was approved. The total awarded to the staff is $1,300, according to Winther.

The next Logan City Council meeting is on Sept. 23 starting at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers at the Logan Community Center.
