Placeholder Image

ELLINWOOD — At the Ellinwood City Council meeting on Tuesday, the council discussed the new street signs the city is getting.
There had been some confusion over the way Humbolt and Bismark Streets are spelled. A citizen had asked the city to consider going to the correct spellings.
Robert Peter, city administrator, said that with all of the digital information, he didn’t recommend changing the current spellings. The council agreed.
Santa Fe and Main Street will have the new signs hanging on the signal light posts.
In other business, the council approved increasing the contribution to the Family Plan HSA effective Jan. 1. The city will contribute $200 for a family and will contribute $150 for a single.
The city will raise the cost of a returned check to $30 with a limit of two times. After that, the account will be on cash or credit card for one year.
The council spent a considerable amount of time discussing the railroad tracks on South Main. The discussion was tabled.
D.J. Knop and Danielle Weber will both receive service awards for 10 years with the fire or police department.
