Cody Wainscott from the fair board let the council know the tractor pull has been rescheduled for Sept 13th gates will open at 11am.
Huckster day is set for Saturday October 3rd. There will be crafts, vendors and a chilli cook off. There may even be a cinnamon roll contest!
Next day, October 4th will be the annual car show sponsored by the Bates County Health Foundation. This is always a great show with lots of quality cars. I hope everyone will come out and support these events.
Report from the personnel committee generated a lot of discussion in regards to their plan to try to start preparing now to be able to meet the minimum wage requirement that will be 15.00 per hour in 2025. No one was ready to vote on this, at this time, as we all felt it needed additional adjustments.
Council then went into closed session to discuss a personnel matter.
