April 27 Cohasset City Council Updates | New



During the April 27 regular meeting of the Cohasset municipal council, the council conducted the following work and discussions:

Approved the addition, which is a recommendation of the staff committee for part-time hiring.

Approved Ironwood Studio door repair quote in the amount of $ 2,897.50.

“It’s for the post office and the community center, mainly for the seals,” said Cohasset Mayor Greg Hagy.

“They’ve been having issues with them for a while,” Councilor Terry Bartz said.

Review of a quote of $ 1,287 from Cretex for manhole materials (plugs, gasket materials and sealant).

“These are direct savings,” said Mayor Hagy.

“It would be cool to see if we could get some data, to see where we are now,” Councilor Phillip Hermel said. “It would be nice to see.”

Approved the purchase of barricade signs in the amount of $ 1,330.

Approved the hiring of seasonal employees: Hunter Hillman and Karter Olsen at $ 13 an hour.

The council extended the retirement date of the city’s parks and recreation coordinator, Dave O’Fallon, to June 1, 2021.

“It was April 30, 2021,” Mayor Hagy said.

“That being said, we have two employees who have been told that they cannot withdraw their resignation letter, and we have set a precedent,” said Councilor Tim Carlson. “I’m not in favor of that.”

“So he wants to extend his contract just to come back to work for two hours?” Hermel asked, arguing it wasn’t.

“He was at halftime anyway,” said Mayor Hagy.

“The only thing I have to say, with the priority that is already established, when we turned down two,” said Councilor Terry Bartz.

The mayor asked someone to assign or think of someone to do the job immediately, at Tuesday’s meeting.

“To designate someone here tonight to do it, we would really have to speed up. There are a lot of little carpet rats out there, and if we don’t have an answer, we have to find one. And I know Dave is doing a great job of getting it all done, ”Hermel said. “Speaking of precedence, I appreciate knowing what has been done before.”

“He’s a part-time employee to begin with,” said Mayor Hagy. “I will ask for a motion to extend it until June 1.”

Mayor Hagy proposed, with the support of Hermel, to extend it until June 1, 2021.

“The motion was to let O’Fallon come back 20 hours a week until June 1, 2021.

“I would like to know how he got so far behind. That’s all we should have taken care of, ”Bartz said.

“I will accept your motion, 20 hours a week,” Councilor Jason Tabaka said.

The Board approved the hiring of a part-time independent contractor.

“We know we have a backlog, wouldn’t you say Max?” And we have new projects coming up, ”said Mayor Hagy. “He was working with Walter, up to 10 hours a week, and getting reports and seeing where we are in the system.”

“Is there a limit for how long we’ll keep it?” Said Tabaka. “Is he an employee of the City or an independent contractor.”

It was discussed that there would be no term limit.

On Wednesday April 28 at 9 a.m., that was the truth at the tax hearing.

“Everyone should prove they are a resident of Cohasset,” Bartz said.

“It’s all in person too,” Tabaka said.

Approved claims in the amount of $ 266,859.79 and minutes of the municipal council meeting of April 13, 2021.

All council members were present. There were no entries of residents.
