At their opening meeting for 2014, Deshler Council has approved a resolution to place a levy on the May ballot, to raise revenue to pay for police protection in the village. That 1.2 mill levy was recently rejected by voters; but council still needs the funds to keep police working in the community.
The salary and wage ordinance for 2014 was finalized by Deshler Council, which would give full and part-time employees a 2.5% increase.
The first public hearing seeking financing for improvements at the Deshler waste-water plant was held. Those improvements are estimated at $500,000, with the addition of a third lagoon. Jones and Henry engineering firm was hired as a consultant on the project at a cost of $13,000.
And Jim Suber was elected president pro-tem for 2014 on Deshler Council.
