The Gower City Council’s monthly meeting was held, Tuesday, December 15, rather than it’s typical day, which would have been Monday, December 14. With little on the agenda, the meeting lasted just 21 minutes.
Those attending the meeting in person were Mayor Chip Holman, City Administrator Carroll Fisher, City Clerk Gwen Ballou, and Police Chief Adam Hill. Those attending via zoom were Aldermen Randy Jamerson, Mike Kruger, and Paul Pottier, as well as City Attorney Joe Gagnon and Planning and Zoning Administrator Kenneth Pike. Alderman Zack Craft was unable to attend.
Confusion struck last week when municipal taxpayers in Clinton County were notified of a small tax that was inadvertently left off their 2020 tax bills.
Residents in Lathrop, Plattsburg and Gower received letters from the Clinton County Collector’s office explaining that the towns’ respective “wheel taxes” were accidentally missing from the latest tax bills. Clinton County Collector Michele Wells said that the software issue that led to the mistake has been corrected, and amended tax bills have been sent to those who were affected.
On Thursday, December 2, Tanner Sims was released from the hospital to begin his life back home in Plattsburg. Welcoming him home were (front row, left to right) Mandy Lewis, Kathy Lewis, Jessy Lewis, Kelsie Lewis, Jacie Taber, (back row) Zach DeFreece, Jackson Lewis, Betty Sims and Frank Lewis.
