Council Accepts Ambulance Director Resignation

SCAT 1 Sheldon Ambulance backSheldon, Iowa — At their regular meeting Wednesday, the Sheldon City Council accepted the resignation of Sheldon Community Ambulance Team Director, Cindy Freeman and announced the procedure for selecting a new SCAT Director.  The Council decided that SCAT Members will select the officers for the team, with the Director and Assistant Director positions to be approved by the City Council. Those recommendations will likely come before the Council at their next meeting.

The Council also reminds residents of the annual clean-up days coming soon. Pickup west of Washington Avenue begins May 16th. Pickup east of Washington Avenue begins May 23rd. To participate, residents must pay a fee of fifteen dollars at the City Office. The City says complete details and rules of the pickup were sent out with the water bills, and are also available at the City Office.

In other business Wednesday, the Council approved the plans and specifications for construction of a Hangar at the Sheldon Regional Airport and voted to award the construction contract to Schaus-Vorhies Contracting of Fairfield, at a cost of nearly $423-thousand.  This hangar will replace the one destroyed by wind this past June.  The Council says the awarding of this contract is contingent on approval by the  insurance company who covered the loss of the hangar.  The Council was told that it appears the insurance company will approve, but the City is awaiting final approval.
