At Monday's Fulton City Council meeting, the council will discuss several resolutions and ordinances.

This meeting was scheduled for May 9, but was delayed because a new air conditioning unit was being installed in city hall.

The council will present a proclamation to Steven Sessler, captain of the Fulton Fire Department. They will also discuss officially excusing council member Mary Rehklau (ward two) from council meetings for health-related reasons. This would be through August 1.

The first resolution the council will discuss would authorize the Mayor to execute an amendment to the city's natural gas all requirements sales agreement with the Interstate Municipal Gas Agency.

This amendment would be for the purchase of natural gas a rate of six cents per dekatherm.

The second resolution the council will discuss would authorize the Mayor to submit an application to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, State Revolving Fund Program. This application would be for loans under the Missouri Clean Water Law.

The loan would help with the construction of lead service line replacement.

The final resolution the council will discuss would authorize the Mayor to enter an agreement with Banner Fire Equipment to build an E-One Rescue Pumper. This equipment would be built to meet the specific needs of the Fulton Fire Department.

The total cost of this would be $500,000, with $250,000 coming from the 2024 Capital Budget and $250,000 coming from the 2023 Capital Budget.

An additional $500,000 in American Rescue Plan (ARPA) funds would also be used.

All of these funds have already been allocated.

Two ordinances will have first readings at Monday's meeting.

The council will discuss an ordinance to authorize the Mayor and the city clerk to enter a contract with the Callaway County Collector and Callaway County Commission for a Tax Collection Agreement.

This is for the collection of taxes through June, 2027.

An annual payment of $5,000 would be issued for the collection services.

The council will have the second reading of one ordinance.

This ordinance would amend the Fulton City Code relating to accepting donations, gifts and sponsorships.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. on Monday.
