Ada, MN — The Ada City Council held their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, October 5th at Council Chambers. Prior to the start of the meeting, they held a public hearing in regards to the $600,000 Housing Rehabilitation grant that the city intends on applying for. Representatives from the Minnesota Housing Authority were on hand to provide a more in-depth review of the program and the application process, according to Ada Mayor John Hintz.

The City of Ada and the Dekko Center has had a difficult time in recent months finding candidates to fill positions such as lifeguards and swim instructors. In an effort to address that issue, the council approved creating an Aquatics Manager position to handle some of those duties.

The council on Tuesday night also had some discussions about subscribing to a text-alert system to send out instant alerts to residents. Mayor Hintz says the council will take the next month to do some research and make a decision then.

And the council approved the sale of another lot and a half in the new Rage Addition housing development. Hintz says only a few lots now remain.

The Ada City Council also approved the purchase of a new bucket truck for Public Works at a cost of $25,000.

Councilmembers Kim Lewis and Crystal Stene will join the KRJB Kaleidoscope Program this Thursday at 9am to further recap this week’s meeting.
