Hastings City Hall staff to get active shooter training

Hastings City Hall will be closed to the public on Monday, June 11 from 8 a.m. to noon for staff to receive training in an active shooting situation, Police Chief Jeff Pratt said at the City Council meeting Tuesday.

To cover it all could take up to two days and some 16 hours, but they cover a lot of ground in four hours, he said.

 

Pratt is setting up a two-hour session for council members in the council chamber, but they are welcome to stop in and take the longer course, he said. Jim Yarger, director of Barry County Emergency Management, Rich Franklin, superintendent of the BISD, Barry County Deputy Marti Horrmann and Hastings Sgt. Chris Miller are instructors.

 

The drop off box will be open while the office is closed but while it will cause some inconvenience, Pratt and others said that getting the training is very important and that all of the staff be available to take it.

 

In other business, the council approved:

*Bliss Nearing Niagara holding its company picnic on June 23, at Tyden Park

 

*a request from the YMCA to park the B.Bus Mobile Library in different locations in the city for kids to get books.

“It’s a positive program and I certainly support it,” City Manager Jeff Mansfield said. It is also favored by the Hastings Public Library.

 

*holding Hastings Summerfest on Aug.24-26.

 

*soliciting request for proposals (RFPs) and requests for qualifications (RFQs) for design services for the Waste Water Treatment Plant, the first step in the updating of the plant.

 

*the appointment of Joan VanHouten to the cable access committee.
