At their regular meeting last night, the Morris City Council approved the purchase of a new transit bus from North Central Bus & Equipment for $76,000. The City also purchased a 2008 transit bus described in good condition with 44,000 miles on it from the DAC for $1,000.
The Council also accepted a $1200 donation from the Morris Lions Club to install park benches by the splash park area of Pomme de Terre Park.
In addition, the Council approved a resolution to renew its insurance policy with the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust. Joel Quam with Bremer Insurance reviewed the policy and recommended its renewal with no deductibles, as is currently in place. There was some uptick in workers compensation.
