The board approved the bid for Howe Company for the engineering work needed for their Water Main Project that will include the area of the street from 15th Street to 20th Street. The city is targeting the project work to be completed in mid April.

Olsson also provided a cost of $23,000 for their services for Street Light work. The project will provide street lights at the intersection of 12th and Main Street, proceed north along North 12th Street, turn along Taylor Street, and then go west 350 feet to the intersection of Taylor Street and North 6th to a location near the city limit sign. The route will be about one mile in length. The anticipated starting date is next Monday. The completion date is anticipated to be March 31st.

City Administrator Jake Taylor told board members that the Bethany Chamber of Commerce has collected $700 from citizens towards the updates to the Train Depot. Beams are in and cut to go in the building. Trimming on walls needs to be completed. Structure repairs are projected to be completed by the end of January.

The city also received word that the Bethany Animal Control Facility has received recent donations totaling $1,900. The city also announced an appreciation for the donations.
