This morning, the board of directors approved selling up to 1,000 yards of dirt from the new industrial park to the church.
Bill Lavers, executive director, said the dirt needs to be moved so crews can complete installing the water line at the park.
The board agreed to sell the dirt at $3 per yard and the church will pay for the removal of the dirt.
One concern that some board members expressed was if the dirt would be needed in other areas of the park to help level the land. Lavers said the majority of the dirt in question is top soil and would not be good for leveling projects.
The board also discussed a redevelopment plan for its website.
While no decision was made today, directors learned the company being targeted for the redesign would charge an initial $5,500 fee to launch the site and a $10 monthly service charge to keep it running. Currently, the DCOS is paying a $250 monthly for website service charges.
DCOS intern Niravkumar "Nick" Patel said the redevelopment of the site is needed because the DCOS site does not show up on the first few pages of a search. He noted that one way to help reach the first page of a search is to updated the site often.
By changing site providers, the DCOS staff will be able to update the website internally and manage the content.
"This is a good way to keep the taxpayers informed," Patel said of a consistently updated website.
Lavers said it would take a couple of months to redevelop the site once the board approves the measure.
During his monthly report, Lavers reported that Patel is finalizing an annual report. He noted that the report will be presented to the Snyder City Council next month when the budget is discussed. The report also will be available to the public.
"This is a way of proving what the taxpayers' money is doing and how we are working to improve Snyder," Lavers said.
Shawn Ragland, board president, scheduled a budget workshop for 5 p.m. July 26. He said the board needs to be prepared for the upcoming fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1.
Board members approved minutes for the April, May and June meetings and financial information for January through April.
No action was taken following a nearly two-hour closed session.
