The Chillicothe Police Department has been awarded grants from the Missouri Intergovernmental Risk Management Association to be used to buy dash-mounted car cameras and wearable cameras. The grant presentation was made to Police Lt. Scott Chubick by MIRMA Loss Control Specialist Jeff Arp during Monday night's council meeting. The grants amounted to $2,379 for the dash mounted cameras and $4,378 for the eight wearable cameras. Also during the meeting, council members were formally introduced to two new full-time police officers: Chris Mueller and Jacob Peterson.

In other business, Street Superintendent Barry Arthur presented an ordinance for the council's consideration to accept street improvements of the remaining portion of Redbud Lane in the Youssef Subdivision. He also presented an ordinance accepting the remaining portion of Lakeview Drive as a city street. The council unanimously approved by ordinances.

City Administrator Ike Holland discussed a real estate agreement with Lawrence Hinnen of Hinnen Hauling and Construction, Inc. regarding property at 103 N. Ryan Street. According to the sale agreement, the buyer has leased the property for many years and is familiar with the condition of the property, including the buildings that need demolished. The sale price is $10,000 and conditions of the sale include that the buyer must demolish the large warehouse building and grain elevator structures within one year of the closing date of the contract.

The council unanimously approved Mayor Chuck Haney's recommendations to reappoint J. Michael Palmer, Carol Sloan, and Rollie Stadlman to the St. Luke's Hospital Chillicothe Board of Directors. The terms will expire December 31, 2017.

As part of the agenda, Robert Conrad presented the 2013-14 city audit.

A couple of items were removed from the council's agenda due to Josh Norris (Director of Parks and Recreation) being unable to attend the meeting.

An executive session followed the regular meeting, and the council unanimously approved a 5% salary increase for the city administrator increasing the salary to $97,240 effective October 1, 2014.
