Staff writer

Lincolnville’s Breakfast with Santa will be from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Dec. 3. The announcement was made Nov. 7 at the Lincolnville City Council meeting by city celebrations chairman Kristen Ebaben. Tri-County Telephone Association will provide the breakfast.

In a 4-1 vote, the council approved the hiring of Martin Combs as a part-time city employee. Joe Vinduska opposed the move. Combs will receive $9 an hour for maintenance work not to exceed 30 hours per week.

The council approved a three year auditing contract with Swindoll Janzen, Hawk, and Lloyd, LLC, of McPherson.

It also approved installation of an electrical box for the concession stand at the ballpark by D&S Electric.

Treasurer Clay Simons said the town is in good shape financially. He reported $25,000 remains in the general fund but encouraged members to confine spending to necessities in order to roll over as much money as possible into the new year.

Streets chairman Dennis Burch said spending on streets would be limited to temporary repairs until more funds are available.

The city is taking sealed bids on a merry-go-round that has been removed from service.

The next council meeting will be at 7 p.m. Dec. 6. The meeting is on a Tuesday because of a scheduling conflict.
