The City of Black River Falls’ Committee of the Whole met earlier this week. City Administrator Brad Chown told members his office transferred $2.4 million dollars of City money to an 18-month CD at
the Co-op Credit Union with a 2.25% APY.
Modern Disposal System’s (MDS) renegotiated their contract with the City for the lease of a transfer station. MDS’ monthly rent will increase to $925 per month with $50 annual increases built in.
Though, MDS says it’s considering constructing their own building in the next year.
Chown reported that revenue for the Shared Ride Taxi Service’s out of service area mileage is down drastically. It appears that Mobility Transformation, Incorporated or MTI is failing to collect the fees on a majority of the rides that originate or end outside of the city limits. Driver logs are being reviewed and the DOT is now being included in correspondences with MTI.
City Street Superintendent Greg Rush noted he’s been in contact with Mathy Construction regarding the build up of tar on Water Street. The build up is from dump trucks working on the Interstate 94 paving project. According to Rush, Mathy made an attempt to scrape the tar off and will now be exploring other options for removing the material from the roadway
