Action anticipated in tonight's council meeting

Ada village intends to share $4,800 of the $298,000 it receives from CARES Acts funding with Ada-Liberty Joint Ambulance District for its use for expenses due to COVID-19.

The action is on tonight’s council agenda. The agenda is attached to this story.

Council will also act on authorizing 2021 dollar amounts for select benefits of village employees as outlined in its policy and procedure manual.

Jamie Hall, village administrator, said this is required because the village removes dollar amounts from the policy and procedure manual for auditing compliance purposes. The list with dollar amounts is attached at the bottom of this story.
