To set the record straight on some issues regarding the City of Watkins: The Watkins City Council discussed repairing the roof on City Hall a few times in 2011 and again in 2012 before taking action. The City Council did not approve this project multiple times nor did it budget and levy for it year after year and never spend the money. The 2012 General Fund budget included $40,000 for capital outlay expense for repairing city buildings. At the June 14, 2012, council meeting, the City Council approved to replace the insulation in the walls and roof along with new steel on the walls and roof at a cost of $71,200.00.
