• Approved the purchase of a bar screen in the amount of $124,291, approximately $100,000 less than what was budgeted. This piece of equipment helps separate waste at the wastewater treatment plant. Installation is expected to cost $28,000, but Feik told the council, “It should last us another 30-40 years.”
• Approved a work order for Snyder and Associates who reviewed the Young’s Park site plan. The City had previously agreed upon a contract with Snyder to provide engineering services, as an engineer is no longer in the City’s employ. The plan for the Kiwanis Miracle Playground was reviewed by Snyder, for the cost of up to $2,800.
• The next regular Knoxville City Council meeting will be held Monday, May 6, at 6:15 p.m.
