On Tuesday, Granby City Council members approved having some work done on two of the city police vehicles.
The request, made by Scott Whitman, chief of police, was for brakes on the department’s Ford Expedition and tires on its Ford Explorer. The work was performed at Shotguns Tire & Repair in Granby, according to city clerk Paula Carsel. She reported that the brakes cost $178 and the tires $610.
Carsel also briefed the council about repairs to recent storm damage.
“I gave an update that all of the storm damage had been repaired at the wastewater plant, the veteran’s park we had to have the pavilion reroofted,” she said. “All of it has been redone.”
Another part of the damage included to the community building/maintenance barn/annex.
Once again, the Granby Fire Department is participating in Christmas for Kids. Applications are available at city hall and must be turned in by Saturday, Dec. 1.
“Applications are available here at Granby City Hall for Granby,” Carsel said. “If they have hard times, such as dad may not have a job, or mom and dad may be jobless, the firefighters are really trying to help. The fire department in Neosho is also talking applications.”
The Granby parade is set for 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1.
