The Wynona Board of Trustees held its monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 19.

Board members approved several documents for the town’s Community Development Block Grant application and a resolution on the CDBG’s Citizens Participation Plan. It was agreed that the grant would be used to finish water-line work remaining from the last project.

Members tabled action on repairing the water tower insulation. They also withheld approval of the 2014-2015 audit. Bids were opened on the 1999 Chevy Truck and Craftsman Zero Turn Mower. The truck bid was awarded to Tom Thiele and a bid for the mower was deemed too low, so the Board decided to re-advertise for new bids on it. Bids for the Craftsman Zero Turn Mower will be opened at the next regular meeting, which is set Tuesday, May 17, at 7:30 p.m.

Attending the last meeting were Austin Chapman from INCOG, along with Donna Swanner, Loretta Little, Harli and Hailey Towell, and Della Carter, Johnnie Lott, Janet Delaney and Tennie Slone.
