Just a few of the topics discussed in the Macedonia Council Meeting of 12/14. Council says goodbye to Councilors Sylvia Hanneken and Dave Engle, and welcomes 4 New part time firefighters. The branch and tree chipping program will extend into 2018 due to the magnitude of the storm, and the amount of damage done to properties. A private firm was subcontracted to help the process. A little over $738,000 more was collected this year into the Macedonia City general fund. That figure will likely be less next year. Before the regular meeting, Fire Chief explained the success of the ISO rating for both Sagamore Hills and Northfield Center since the two communities enlisted Macedonia for their ems/fire coverage.
The Santa with the Fire Truck delivered over 1200 gifts to over 300 homes this year over a four day period. Sylvia Hanneken and Dave Engle thanked the Macedonia residents for allowing them to serve on Macedonia Council. For a full report watch the video of the Macedonia Council meeting.
