Runaway Bay’s wastewater treatment plant will soon receive a pair of repairs – one that was planned and another that was an emergency.

At its meeting Jan. 21, the city council approved fixing two blowers and installing a high-service pump.

The pump was a need identified in a water study conducted over the summer. However, the blowers went out just recently.

The council authorized repairing the blowers, which totaled just over $10,000, and approved an engineering contract for the pump installation.

Officials also approved an engineering contract for repairs to a road leading to the marina.

“There’s a little road that goes by the marina that’s deteriorating,” City Administrator/Secretary Oneta Berghoefer said. “We hired the engineer to come in and give us engineering solutions to that.”


The council also:

  • called the May 10 election. The terms of the mayor and two at-large council seats, currently held by Robert Ryan, Neil Peters and Kay Simmons, expire.
  • performed the annual evaluations on the city administrator/secretary, police chief Tim Donald and municipal court judge Mary Beth Henry. No action was taken.
  • approved the December meeting minutes, financials, accounts payable, activity reports, journal entries and code enforcement report.
