McDonald County Press - - COUNTY - Sally Car­roll McDon­ald County Press scar­roll@nwadg.com

Good­man City Coun­cil mem­bers re­cently took steps to be­gin again the process of con­demn­ing a res­i­dent’s house.

At the Aug. 1 meet­ing, coun­cil mem­bers agreed to restart the con­dem­na­tion process for Shauna Lan­dis’ prop­erty. The orig­i­nal process was started one year ago, but in that amount of time, very lit­tle work has been ac­com­plished, coun­cil mem­bers agreed.

In pre­vi­ous coun­cil meet­ings, Lan­dis’ son, Joseph Lom­bardo, has com­mit­ted to clean­ing up, resh­in­gling the roof and more, but coun­cil mem­bers have not been sat­is­fied with the progress.

In other busi­ness, coun­cil mem­bers agreed to seek bids again on the ball­park lights, which were dam­aged in the April 4 tor­nado. Only one com­pany bid on the project. Coun­cil mem­bers would like a more com­pet­i­tive look at the project with var­i­ous bids. Bids will be open un­til 4 p.m. Sept. 5, said Good­man City Clerk Karla McNor­ton.

Coun­cil mem­bers agreed to spend $4,939.25 on a new com­puter sys­tem for the Po­lice De­part­ment, as Po­lice Chief Curt Drake said the other sys­tem is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a great deal of prob­lems. Other busi­ness in­cluded:

The ap­proval of monthly bills in the amount of $8,450.17.

News that city of­fi­cials are work­ing with the Em­pire Dis­trict for an up­com­ing tree give­away for res­i­dents who lost trees be­cause of the April tor­nado.

McNor­ton re­ported that City Clerk Dana Corn­well will be­gin learn­ing how to serve as a court clerk, and re­cently com­pleted her no­tary test­ing.
