HAVEN - Following the recent windstorm within the City of Haven, numerous electrical outages have occurred due to tree limbs falling, so the Haven City Council on Monday increased the tree trimming expenditure for 2022 from $10,000 to $30,000. Asplundh Tree Service will be able to do 220 hours of trimming within that budget to clear electrical lines in the city.

Haven Police were authorized Monday to spend $56,324.33 of ARPA funds on tasers, body cameras and dash cameras from Axon. Dash cameras will not arrive until April 2023.

The City also adopted a Return to Work policy for its employees at the advice of its workman's comp insurance carrier.

The next meeting of the Haven City Council will be July 5 at 7 p.m. at 120 South Kansas in Haven.
