The Good­man City Coun­cil de­cided to move for­ward with a new fence, car­port and gazebo to re­place these items which were dam­aged or de­stroyed in the early April tor­nado.

Al­der­men, on Tues­day night, de­cided to put out for bid a plan for a new gazebo on Main Street. Coun­cil mem­bers had orig­i­nally looked at a com­pany that would build a gazebo for $5,000. The gazebo would be built with treated lum­ber, then stained, and fea­ture a metal roof. Coun­cil mem­bers agreed to get ad­di­tional fig­ures for the project.

Al­der­men also agreed to get

an ac­cu­rate es­ti­mate on a car­port re­place­ment and de­cided to build a new fence by the Stay and Play Park. Coun­cil mem­bers ex­pressed in­ter­est in get­ting es­ti­mates, then pos­si­bly in­clude those fig­ures in the bud­get plan­ning for next year. Coun­cil mem­bers will hold their first bud­get meet­ing at 7 p.m. Mon­day, Dec. 4.

Pub­lic works di­rec­tor David Brodie re­ported the city ex­pe­ri­enced prob­lems with its well re­cently, but the prob­lem has been fixed.

“We never lost wa­ter and we never lost pres­sure,” he said, ad­ding that light­ning was the prob­a­ble cause for the pump’s mo­tor to quit.

As the well was be­ing re­paired, crew mem­bers re­moved the mo­tor. And some­one stole the mo­tor dur­ing the day on Wed­nes­day, Brodie said. City clerk Karla McNor­ton said the po­lice re­port in­volv­ing the theft was sub­mit­ted to the in­surance com­pany.

In other busi­ness, coun­cil mem­bers:

• Ap­proved a mem­ber­ship agree­ment for the Mis­souri Ru­ral Ser­vice Corp., as well as a new con­tract with the Jo­plin Hu­mane So­ci­ety;

• Ap­proved a new bath­room sink for the Good­man Po­lice Sta­tion; and

• Will re­view a pro­posed in­tox­i­ca­tion or­di­nance.

The Com­pre­hen­sive Land Use meet­ing has been resched­uled for 7 p.m. on Nov. 28.
