Republic Council approves new roof for Republic Police Department

The Republic City Council, at their May 7 meeting, OK’d a bid of $54,995 from Roof One, LLC to reroof the Republic Police Department. The bid was the lowest of four bids submitted. The highest bid, which was submitted by Capital Roofing, came in at a whopping $127,000.
As per the contract, the roofing must be complete by July 12, 2019.
In other business, the council—in the absence of council member John Jones—voted 7-0 to:
- Amend the municipal code, Chapter 235, Solid Waste Management, and add Section 235.020, Yard Waste Disposal Site.
- Authorize signers with Bank of Missouri. This authorizes newly-elected Mayor Pro-tempore Matt Russell to replace Charlie Brashers as a signer.

The second proclamation was for Republic City Employee Appreciation Week, May 13-17. It was presented to Republic’s Lisa Addington.
