Malta City Council recap


January 30, 2019


The newly installed surveillance system is fully operational at the Malta City Hall.

If you are up to money business, you aren't going to want to try it at the Malta City Hall anymore.

During last week's Malta City Council Meeting, City Clerk Lori Bond reported that the recently purchased security cameras purchased by the City were installed in several locations Malta City Hall, said more are to come, and reported that one person who didn't like being recorded took his hoodie sweatshirt off and threw it atop one of the cameras in the City Hall exercise room. Clerk Bond said that the person was identified, had their keyless entry fob turned off and would no longer be allowed inside the building after hours.

"If you mess with the cameras you lose out and are no longer allowed access to the gym," Clerk Bond told the Council members.

During Malta Public Works Director's Jim Truelove's bi-weekly report, he told the Council that the Public Works Crew had recently built and installed a new dugout at one of the baseball fields at Trafton Park and made some improvements to another of the park's dugouts, both badly in need of repair. Director Truelove spoke of a recent water break near the Phillips County Court House that happened two Saturday's ago, stating that a fist-sized hole erupted in one of the old cast iron pipes. Malta Mayor John Demarais thanked Truelove and Crew for working on a Saturday to get the water leak fixed.

In other Public Works news, Director Trulove said streets around the City of Malta are being sanded to cover ice when needed and said the cardboard bailer at the Old Airport was back up and bailing.

During the Malta Parks and Rec portion of the meeting, Co-Director Sally Wright spoke of several sporting classes that had recently started or would start soon. She said Adult Co-Ed basketball started last week and will run until February 27 and currently has three teams playing with the possibility of a team from Dodson joining. The Youth Co-ed Basketball league also started last week and the teams (15 total and 130 children) play on Saturday mornings. Upcoming events hosted from Malta Parks and Rec include the tumbling class for children ages three and up (see advertisement on page 5A in this week's PCN.)

The next Malta City Council Meeting has been changed from Tuesday, February 12 to Monday, February 11 starting at 5 p.m.
