Woodworth City Council Minutes for August 2021
The meeting was called to order on August 9th with all members
present. Also present was Brenda Wolf. The minutes and treasurer's
reports were given and motioned for approval by Mayor Wick.
Brenda Wolf submitted a written request for a copy of all the
ordinances. At present, the council only has the one copy and more
will have to be printed. She also questioned to council if a business
license would be required for a new business in town. And she
complained about air in her water lines. She also questioned how far
back from the street a building could be erected. Since the street in
front of her house is a county road, she should contact the county.
Old Business: the county does not have the chemical on hand to spray
the leafy spurge at the dump ground, when it comes in they will take
care of it. The new culverts are a maybe to be installed next week.
The fridge, grill, hot water heater, plumbing and a propane tank for
the concession stand have all been purchased, also this past month the
council approved spray foaming the inside of the concession stand.
This is all done in anticipation for the all school reunion next year
and home softball games. Darren reported he has not talked to anyone
from Guthmiller Earthmoving about cleaning the lagoon. He will take
care of it so we are at least put on the list.

four customers. The motion carried.
New Business: There was only one bid on the old mower and the council
decided to reject it. Sharon Snyder reported that John Deere in
