LYNN - The Town of Lynn will be donating $10,000 to its schools and organizations within the school. This was a topic at the regular town meeting on Monday, Aug. 20.
Mayor Jeff Stokes brought the topic to the floor, and Earl Gilbert made a motion to donate $2,000 to each of the following: Lynn High School, Lynn Elementary School, Lynn School Girls Athletics, Lynn School Boys Athletics and Lynn School Band. All council members agreed a $10,000 donation would be acceptable, with Alan Barnett seconding the motion.
“The town did well this year so we wanted to help out the school,” Stokes said.
In other business, transmission repairs to a 2004 F-250 brush truck was agreed to, with Booger Tire Center doing the repairs at a cost of $1,048.61. Funds from the fire department will be used.
Another vehicle in need of repair was the police department’s 2014 Chevy Tahoe. A motion was made and passed to pay $1,186.22 for a hub assembly, brake pads and labor for the vehicle repair.
The other topic brought to the floor was repair to the industrial washing machine at Lynn Fire Station #2. The mayor told the council one part had to be returned, and the technician would have to come back and work on it. Earl Gilbert made a motion to table paying for repairs to the washing machine. All were in favor, and the motion passed. The meeting was then adjourned.
The next town council meeting will be Monday, Sept. 17, at 6 p.m. at the old Lynn Town Hall.
