Red Bud Council approves audit bid and Lincoln Park lighting project

A brief meeting was held by the Red Bud City Council on Monday night, with the most discussion on the city’s audit.

Alderwoman Susan Harbaugh noted that they had asked for bids on the audit and only had one bidder, Fick, Eggemeyer & Williamson of Columbia. 

The firm offered multiple year options on their bid, and the council opted for the five year option. The cost of the contact is $10,000 per year, with a $200 increase each year.

Two street closure requests were approved. The first was to close a portion of Brand Street, as well as to use the library’s parking lot, on Feb. 2 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the demolition of the former Red Bud Lumber Company building. 

The second closure request was from St. Peter UCC Church for the closure of Randolph Street from Madison Street to Roeslein on Feb. 26 and March 12, from 3-8 p.m., to allow for curbside service at the church’s fish fries.
