Ada City Council approves several agenda items at special meeting

Ada —

At a special Ada City Council meeting Friday, hospitals, city annexing, contracting an attorney, rehiring an Ada city filmmaker, a fire department grant and a contract of services with Ada Jobs Foundation were discussed. 

As council went down the list, each item was discussed and voted on. Council unanimously voted to approve giving consent to Mercy Hospital taking over the ambulance service. Both items pertaining to the transfer of responsibilities from Valley View Regional Hospital to Mercy Hospital were unanimously approved. 

A vote to approve or deny an ordinance extending the corporate limits of the city of Ada to include portions of the Stonebridge subdivision was halted until the next city council meeting in July. City attorney Frank Stout said he wanted to first explore further options. However, Stout said he believes it will still go on as planned.

Matters pertaining to an agreement of services with Craig Shew, an attorney previously in business with the city of Ada, were voted on and approved, but not to exceed $15,000. A contract renewal for Will Boggs of Dustbowl Films for professional video production and services was also approved by unanimous vote.

After a short discussion, the Homeland Security Grant awarding the city of Ada Fire Department $1,249.32 for the purchase of Q Rae gas detectors was quickly approved.

Last on the agenda was approval of contract of services with Ada Jobs Foundation, which was also unanimously approved.
