The Amery City Council met in
regular session yesterday, and made a little history right at the beginning.
For the first time, a council member, Rick Van Blaricom, participated by
conference telephone from Arizona. The

current plan, to meet state requirements. The Council also approved a lease for
the Austin-Healy Club autocross. Payment of soil remediation at Amery Memory
Care was approved in the amount of $7,000.00. A request for a new Fire Chief vehicle by Fire Chief Darrel Christianson
was not approved, but the subject was referred to the Finance committee for
further discussion and evaluation. Council
Member Rick Davis questioned why the towns involved in the Fire Department,
Lincoln, Alden and Black Brook, had not be informed, and wondered if the city
really wanted to create such a policy when it had never provided a vehicle for
the Fire chief until a surplus vehicle was provided for that purpose. Other council members concurred and the
Finance committee will pursue it.
