  • Finance Commissioner Jim Morris reported to Eldorado City Council the city has received from Saline County all its property tax money for 2012 and 2013 that was levied in 2011.
    The amount is a little over $368,513. Council voted to transfer from the general fund the levied share to the Eldorado Cemetery Board in the about of $5,218, Board of Trustees Police Pension Fund of $74,512 and to Emergency Services and Disaster Agency $1,061.
    The meeting's committee reports indicated routine activity.
    Street Superintendent J.B. James said his department is continuing to repair potholes in streets.
    Street and Sewer Commissioner Robbie Price said as the weather warms departments will address mowing concerns.
    Fire Chief Mike McKinnies said fire calls have been low with a couple of false alarms and grass fires. He is updating hydrant records.
    Code Enforcement Officer Billy Bradley said in the spring he will go into springtime cleanup mode, that a trailer has been torn down and that he is looking at a couple of houses for tearing down. He said he will work with Public Property and Fire Commissioner Jeff Minor and James to develop a budget for the year for demolition and removal of derelict properties.
    Mayor Rocky James said he has received a few calls about derelict properties needing cleaned up and asks for patience.
    "We're at the point with most people that we have to start taking them to court to get things done," James said.
