Valentine City Council Meeting October 13, 2016
Saturday, 15 October 2016 05:20
The Valentine City Council met Thursday evening for their regular meeting. Brown County Commissioner Buddy Small addressed the council with the possibility of bringing their trash to Valentine rather than to Lexington. No action was taken, but further discussion will be held on the matter. The bid went to John Deere for a track loader for the landfill at a cost of around $260,000. The Cherry County Tourism Board met with the council about the location for a convention center east of the High School. Other possible sites for the project were discussed but the council stated that they would work with the group in the location process. The early stages of the project include about a 7 million dollar building, built almost entirely by donations, according to board member Jon Davenport. The council also approved a golf outing yet this fall on the new Fredrick Peak golf course for volunteers and donors.
The council approved a six person police department, which will give Valentine an on-duty officer 24/7.
