Mayor Dane Weindorf told council that the tax revenue for Hamburg is better than it’s ever been. “It’s the highest I’ve ever seen it,” he said. “Things are looking really good right now.”
Paul Keith reminded the council guests about the executive order allowing citizens to obtain an absentee ballot due to COVID-19. Keith said that those ballots need to be requested as soon as possible. The deadline is not until October, but Keith said, the process of obtaining one takes a little time and therefore people don’t need to wait until the last minute.
The council approved for the mayor to purchase a dumping trailer in the amount of $7,000. The mayor said the city has been using a regular trailer when one of the garbage trucks is down for maintenance, and the dump trailer will make that more manageable.
The pavement projects for this year will start in the next few weeks. The city roads to be paved are portions of Gardner Street, Jackson Street, Hickory Street, and Parker Street. Weindorf said they will pave Gardner Street from Mills Street to Lincoln Street. Hickory will be paved from Jackson Street to Parker Street. Jackson will be paved from Gardner Street to Hickory and Parker from Gardner to the Johnson Cemetery Road.
