No more stolen toilet paper

Contributing writer

Theft of toilet tissue from Tampa’s public restroom on Main Street should no longer be a problem after city council members decided to acquire a lockable dispenser. They made the decision Jan. 7 at a special meeting. The dispenser will be installed as soon as it arrives.

In a related action, the council awarded Phyllis and Rod Mueller, who are in charge of the senior center and the public restrooms, a $100 Christmas bonus.

Bills approved for payment at the meeting included $226 for Kansas League of Municipalities dues, and $360 for fourth-quarter taxes.

City clerk Donna Backhus distributed filing information to city officials Mayor Tim Svoboda, David Rziha, and Paul Backhus, who will be up for re-election this spring.

The council discussed and approved the city’s soon-to-expire contract with Waste Connections for trash pick-up.

A rise in rates in the new contract was a point of contention for some council members.

“Well, they’ve always been fair with us in the past,” Svoboda said as he recommended approval.

The clerk read the minutes from a special meeting called to finalize specifications for a new city equipment shed.

The building will be 30 X 40 feet, with a section partitioned off to rent to the Rural Water District no. 1. The district had been sharing space in the old building.
