City starting manager transition


At Monday night’s regular monthly meeting of the Purcell City Council and Public Works Authority, out-going City Manager Dale Bunn agreed to submit a written transition plan for new City Manager Sam Demel.

The council requested the document for the status of all projects, organizational structure, contacts and any other relevant information useful to the city. The document is to be reviewed December 22 at noon.

City Treasurer Victor Lohn reported sales taxes were up 6.72 percent over this time last year and use taxes were up 47.17 percent.

The council voted to rebid a turnaround on 4th Avenue since all bids came in over the amount estimated by the engineer.

Bob Dillon and Associates presented the 2022-23 audit and reported there were no issues.

In the public works authority portion of the meeting Lexington City Manager Deana Allen discussed with the council about possibly purchasing or leasing a piece of property that Purcell owns in Lexington for an animal shelter.  No action was taken with further discussion to be continued about options.

The board tabled a resolution amending policy for the city and public works authority distributed generation program.
