The question of best practices for effective risk management was referred to Streets and Safety.
There was a brief discussion of the Village’s experiences over the past year concerning the agreement with Great Lakes Petroleum to supply gas and diesel for Village police and service vehicles at Gurney School. Streets and Safety will be asked to continue to evaluate which supplier best fits the Village’s needs.
The Committee discussed Ordinance 2015-1 for the payment of bills for the month of January 2015, and recommends that Council adopt that Ordinance.
Committee Member Hale adjourned the meeting at 6:50 PM.
