Altamont city council members this week discussed covenants to be established regarding the city's new residential subdivision in the south part of town.

The items council members want included in the covenants for South Point Subdivision will be sent to City Attorney Tracy Willenborg for inclusion in the guidelines for the subdivision.

The Council, following a closed session, set the minimum acceptable prices for two residential lots. The City purchased the properties and cleared them, and will now put them up for sale. The minimum acceptable bid for the lot at 301 North Main is $9,500. The minimum acceptable bid for the lot at 301 South Edwards is $15,000.

Council members discussed a service known as 120 Water. The service attempts to determine where lead water lines are located in an attempt to replace them. No action on the proposal. 

The Council did approve a Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll Drive on September 16 and a 5K Run to benefit Firehouse Mission on November 5. Also approved was the purchase of accessories for a new police vehicle, bucket truck repairs, a truck engine replacement, and a payment to IMRF for an early retirement incentive for city police officer Doug Holman. Bills were paid for a raw water pump replacement, a gate valve for the sanitary sewer installation in South Point Subdivision, and for installation of the sewer in South Point.
