Hobson Town Council discusses grant for pool

Hobson Town Council met on Wednesday, June 21 at 7 p.m. at City Hall. Mayor Loren Drivdahl presided. Council members present were Mike Woods, Larry Denton, and Paulette Matlosz. Also present was Engineer Garth French.  

After reciting the Pledge of allegiance, minutes were read and approved. The financial report was approved also.  

Matlosz was able to get a Central Montana Foundation grant for $10,000 to pay for a new sand filter for the Hobson swimming pool. Bill Spratt will give a check to Nealy Campbell who will order the sand trap. It is proposed to  replace the old one after the pool closes for the season in August.  

A car crusher is expected to be in Hobson to crush and eliminate junk cars around town. Bob Abel and Woods are in contact with them. 

The Philbrook sign is ready to be installed. Woods is working on this project.  

The Mayor will check on having weeds near the ball park sprayed by the county weed control.  

French needed members to sign a resolution to complete the grant for the additional $5,000, as part of the TSEP  Planning Grant of $30,000 for the City. An idea  about putting information signs up informing people  about parks, the pool, and other items Hobson has to offer was tabled until the next meeting.  

The Town Hall meeting to discuss plans to help upgrade Hobson was changed from July 26 to Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 7 p.m. The people of Hobson will be invited to attend with their ideas and suggestions for improvements, and will be held in the multi-purpose room at Hobson school.  

Mark Howard will be in charge of checking the level of sludge in the lagoon to see if it has receded  lately. The meeting adjourned at 8 p.m.
