Council approves new water system for northwest Crestview

Council President Ben Iannucci III asked Bomar if the cost would’ve been less if only one contractor did the work.

“The reason we broke it out is to save the city money,” Bomar said, explaining contractors generally have a specialty, such as drilling, and would in turn substitute the project’s other components, charging the city for the project management and the actual work.

The work would likely start within 30 days of signing the contracts with Speegle and Evans, Bomar said.

In other matters, the city:

• Unanimously approved a social media policy for city employees that will govern use of such Internet sites as Twitter and Facebook.

• Unanimously approved a request by Catherine Dortch of the Concerned Citizens Group for city support of its annual parade honoring the Rev. Martin Luther King. City attorney Jerry Miller recommended the group be added as an additional insured entity on the city’s liability insurance.

• Unanimously approved Mayor David Cadle’s recommendation to appoint Warrant Officer Joann Durm to the Crestview Public Housing Authority board, replacing long-time member Sgt. George Stakely, who recently resigned.
