Lakemore Village Council held a special meeting to pass legislation Oct. 23.

Due to the fact there was not a quorum at the regular scheduled Oct. 15 meeting, it was necessary to hold the special meeting.

A resolution authorizing the mayor to accept the proposal from CT Consultants to perform general engineering services for three years was not approved by the members of council. After discussion, council members voted to approve a proposal from Hammontree and Associates to provide general engineering services for the village for three years. On the resolution, Chad Lance voted "no," Tracy Douglas abstained, and the remaining council members voted "yes".

In other business, council members approved a resolution authorizing the mayor to apply for the 2019 Community Development Block Grand Funding. The grant would be used to replace failing water main lines on Martha and Josephine avenues. Mayor Rick Justice said the water lines in that area are in trouble and need replacing.

A resolution was passed that verifies blanket purchase orders approved through the Lakemore Purchase order policy for the fourth quarter.

The resignation of Alain Vue from the Lakemore Fire Department was approved by council members. Vue has accepted a full-time position for another department.

Council approved a resolution authorizing the mayor to enter into a contract with Total Administrative Services Corporation for employee health flexible spending accounts for Nov. 1 to Oct. 31, 2019.

Deciding on a health insurance plan for Lakemore employees, two SummaCare contracts were voted down by council members. It was decided that United HealthCare Coverage was a better health insurance for employees of the village.

The next regular meeting will be held at 7 p.m., Nov. 5 at the Municipal Building on Main Street in the village.
