Beefing up the Blair Police Department
After running low on officers for awhile, the Blair Police Department is close to being at proper staffing levels. Blair Police Chief Joe Lager and Mayor Hansen are extending a conditional offer of employment to candidate Jacob Flynn. The Blair City Council last night also approved the purchase of a Ford Explorer for the Police Department… An engineering agreement with Burns and McDonnell to design a new water intake was approved by the council as well. Construction on that water intake will not begin until 2021 due to the number of state and federal agencies involved in the permitting process.
