City OKs street work, wastewater repairs
Robinson City council had a 12-minute meeting Tuesday night, dealing primarily with utilities.

The city council decided to pay $138,457.68 from the motor fuel tax fund for work on four streets. The streets are Loyland Drive, Highland Avenue and Jefferson and Otey streets. The work will be done by Ambraw Asphalt.

The wastewater treatment plant got much of the night's attention.

The council approved paying $1,663.45 for repairs to the ultraviolet disinfection system of the system. The work will be done by Ressler Associates of St. Louis.

The council also approved hiring a new part-time employee for the plant to replace the previous worker who reached the end of his contract.

The council will pay no more than $1,500 to repair the street sweeper. The company doing the work will be Biernbaum Garage of Palestine.

The planned Nov. 11 city council meeting would have been on Veteran's Day. It was rescheduled to Nov. 10, which is a Monday.

Alderman Troy Pinkston was absent for the meeting.

In other business the council:

• Heard the last day for the pool is Sunday.

• Heard that the law enforcement night out was a success and Chief Bill Ackman said they plan to make it an annual event.

• Heard that 19 candidates passed the physical test for the new police hire list. The written tests were sent off for grading and scores should be available next week.
