On Monday, April 1, the Wakefield City Council met for their regular monthly meeting.

Topics discussed include reports from Wakefield PRIDE, the Wakefield Recreation Association, Waste Management rates, and more.

Wakefield PRIDE reported that their Easter Egg Hunt held on March 23 was successful. The Wakefield Recreation Association reported that youth soccer games will begin on April 4 and approximately 50 kids signed up for the 2024 league, enough for 5 teams.

The Council accepted the quote for 2024-2025 City Insurance Policy. The Council also received and reviewed the 2023 City Audit.

The Council increased the rates on Waste Management totes. A single tote will now cost $23. The change will be in effect for Wakefield residents’ April Waste Management bill.

The Council proceeded with planning for the 2024 Fourth of July Fireworks Show. The Wakefield Volunteer Fire Department suggested holding a fundraiser selling fireworks.

The meeting adjourned after Mayor Chryssovergis signed papers regarding the ongoing Wastewater Lagoons Project.
