Chapin Village Board reviewing options for new police vehicle

Discussion regarding a new vehicle for the police force was a topic at the August meeting of the Chapin Village Board held last week. The village’s current squad car was damaged extensively in an accident with a deer on June 14. The possibility of purchasing a 2014 used vehicle from the Missouri Highway Patrol was discussed.

In the utility report: The aeration project for the sewer treatment is progressing on schedule. Currently, sludge is being taken from the lagoon manually.

The rescue squad reported five calls for service last month, raising the YTD total to 51. Several CARS members conducted a hands-on CPR presentation at the Concord Fish Fry held last Saturday. A set of ratchet straps to be used in larger vehicle accidents was approved for purchase, not to exceed $750. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref="http://etypeservices.com/Cass%20County%20Star%20GazetteID497/"><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
