A special meeting of the City Council of the City of Walcott, Iowa was held on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, with Mayor John Kostichek calling the meeting to order at 5:30 p.m. Council members present were: Tim Koehler, Virgil Wayne Latimer, Lisa Mengler, Jackie Puck, and Jacob Puck. Absent: None. Lisa Rickertsen was also present.
Mengler moved and Jackie Puck seconded to approve the agenda. Motion carried.
Public Works Director Position. Discussion was held on the applications received for the Public Works Director (PWD) position. The Council felt that none of the applicants met 100% of the job requirements as listed in the job description. The job description was recently updated to include the required State of Iowa wastewater certification (Grade 3) for the new wastewater treatment plant. The City currently does not have a full-time employee that meets the certification requirements for the wastewater plant. Due to the accelerated retirement date of the current PWD, the Council will proceed with interviews and look at possibly adjusting the job description.
Jackie Puck moved and Mengler seconded to adjourn at 7:12 p.m. Motion carried.
All motions were unanimous.
