Freedom Town Board handles grant-related housekeeping

• Bids farewell to Trustee Rhodes


August 20, 2020

The Town of Freedom held its regular board of trustees meeting last Wednesday evening, Aug. 12.

Virtually present for the brief meeting were Mayor Shad Brackin and Trustee Rolando Galindo, joined later by Trustee Randy Rhodes. Also present were Town Clerk Cindy Reed and grant consultant Jennifer Firgard.

After approving several housekeeping items – paying the OEDA invoice (using the CDBG funds), the bid packet and dates for the CDBG grant, past meeting minutes, and purchase orders, the board listened to department reports.

These were quick – the maintenance department staff will need to complete the annual drug test for DOT by Sept. 28 and the office manager is working with Firgard on completing the REAP grant. Mandatory grant-related training will be in the next couple of months, and after that they can start working on applying for grants for the next most critical need.

Reed, who is also the treasurer, reported that she is gathering information needed by William Gauer to complete the 2020-21 budget and audit. Reed also noted that Code Inspector Ty Harper will complete the property maintenance classes on Aug. 13 and 14.

At the close of the meeting, Mayor Brackin and the board wished Rhodes good luck in his coming adventures in Hutchinson, Kansas, where he will be moving for his job. Rhodes officially resigned from the board at the meeting, but he had informed the board at the July meeting that he would be resigning.
