WILLARD City Manager Brian Humphress told council Monday the U.S. 224 sewer lift station is back on track.

The city had requested permission from Mercy Hospital to place the station next to the wellness center.

Now that the two sides ironed out some issues, formal approval might come within the next few weeks, Humphress said.

"We are greatly appreciative of all the work the local hospital has done to get the corporate approval necessary," the city manager said. He added he's hoping to recommend an engineering firm to council in February, with construction starting next fall.

In other business Monday:

***Council voted unanimously to authorize Humphress to sell a 1990 Ford F-350 one-ton aerial bucket truck. The sale price will be credited against the purchase price of a newer aerial bucket truck.

***Council voted unanimously to accept the gift of a white zero-turn riding mower.

***Council voted unanimously to authorize Humphress to advertise for bids for materials, supplies, insurance, equipment and services for the city's use in 2008.
