#7 Reimbursement for observing derecho tree removal

*NOTES: Council didn't approve. He has sense quit (fire?). Council has to do something. Person has to sign off on work that was done. He won't get anything. Had to have someone to watching the work. Lack of communication. It was brought up at a previous meeting that they had to have someone there on site. Council needs to figure out how to bill this person or get the person to sign off on these sheets (of paper) or lose $250,00 and figure out how the city is going to pay for it. Tim and Alen have put in countless hours helping and are overwhelmed. A meeting every thursday with FEMA to keep the ball rolling. 400+ hours clearing debris. Volunteers from here on out? Have this wrapped up by end of year.
