KIMBERLY—On Monday night the Kimberly City Council made a $500 donation to the Mortimer Jordan High School Bass Club. The city will be sponsored on the team’s 2019 competition shirts, according to Mayor Bob Ellerbrock.
“I’m about helping as much as we can because it’s our community and it’s our community’s kids,” said Ellerbrock.
In other business, the council also:
▪ passed a vote to purchase four new tires for a police vehicle for a total of $825.96.
▪ accepted Johnny Norwood as a volunteer member of the Kimberly Fire Department.
