New alderman takes oath at Tracy

by Alan McArthur
Landmark reporter

The Tracy Board of Aldermen approved a new replacement alderman to fill the position resigned by Larry Hill during the September meeting.

On Wednesday the board approved the appointment of Robert Roediger to the position until the April 2009 election.

The board approved an ordinance accepting the resignation of Hill and appointing Roediger to fill the alderman-at-large position until the next municipal election.The appointment was approved by the board with a vote of 3-0.

The board also approved an ordinance to increase the amount of hours given to the city's court clerk to complete her work. The ordinance allows the court clerk to work up to 40 hours during the week court is held to be able to file all of the proper paper work.

The ordinance also allows the mayor to have discretion over how much the court clerk works during the week.

The board also heard from the city's attorney, Lisa Rehard, about possible increases to the water and sewer rates for citizens.

Rehard said she is working to figure up the proposed rate the city should charge for water because of a rate increase from the Public Water Supply District #9. Tracy may also pass on an increase from Platte City for the treatment of sewage.

According to Rehard, she is not finished with the numbers, but does not expect a significant increase in the sewer rates. On Wednesday, Rehard said she is not sure how much the water rate may increase.
