Crescent City Council approved several items on the agenda at Monday's meeting. Items approved included a waiver of community pool fees for an annual swimming meet in June, a budget modification and a contract for the Fifth street construction project.

The Crescent City Swim Club showed appreciation to the council for waiving the pool fees by offering to run a snack bar and give the proceeds to the city council.

andquot;That is a huge offer of volunteerism,andquot; Councilmember Irene Tynes said.

A budget modification request to purchase accounts receivable, fixed assets and project grant modules from Springbrook Software was approved. It will reallocate funds by a one-time allocation of $2,800, and $3,200 every year.

The grant project management works will allow for projects to be tracked better.

Jim Barnts, public works director, presented a contract for the Fifth Street reconstruction project, which was approved to reallocate $55,000 within the contract.

The request was put forth to supply cable, electrical and power lines.

andquot;It has been a struggle getting the work completed with funding. I am requesting about a $55,000 transfer,andquot; Barnts said.

andquot;The bid is around $158,000 we have already put about $47,000 into it,andquot; he said. andquot;I am sure we can get it done with the $55,000. It is a busy street.andquot;

The approval also allows for the mayor to execute the contract.
