Jerry Kellogg offered the city some old rock and concrete blocks. Jerry had purchased the old grocery store next to his Nuts and Bolts some time ago. It has been in the process of being tore down for a while.
Kellogg wanted to donate the old rubble to the city. He had heard that they may be in need of some material to put in the lagoon. The city approved this if they could get the material in a timely and inexpensive manner.
Dustin Aldrich wants to rent a portion of what used to be the Kustom Kraft building. Aldrich will start a small business called Southern Hills Tractor Repair.

The board approved Shirley Horton, Bev Carlson, Judy Porter and Gay Darrow to serve on the elections board this spring. They also approved to extend the Sander Sanitation contract for three years.
