City will provide uniforms
to public works employees

by Kim Fickett
Landmark reporter

As an objective for the Platte City Board of Aldermen's fiscal year 2002, the board received three quotes from companies to provide shirts and pants for public works department employees.

The board budgeted $5.61 per person per week. Aramark came in with the lowest bid at $4.60 for shirts and pants per person per week.

Due to the money left from the board of aldermen's earlier budgeting, the board approved the additional $.50 for jackets per person per week. The total cost of the uniforms still came in under budget, at $5.10.

The uniforms are a voluntary service for public works employees. The new uniforms should be ready for the department around the first of the year.

At its meeting last week, aldermen also approved a $25 fee for insufficient funds checks. The charge went into effect immediately.

City Administrator Keith Moody announced to the board that interviews for candidates for the position of public works superintendent would be this Friday.

The city's parks department reported they are looking at a consultant to aid with their master plan.
