Stewart City Council accepts bid, hears from freelance writer

At a Stewart City Council meeting on Monday night, councilors approved the sale of a fire truck and heard from a freelance writer working with the McLeod County Historical Partnership.
Councilors — with Council Member Kurt Glaeser absent and with the new addition of Council Member James (Jim) Eitel — were heartily surprised to receive a bid on the sale of the city’s old fire truck at $2,500, with the conditions that the truck be picked up within 30 days, weather permitting. Other bids were as high as $1,200 and as low as $500.
In what was at least his second meeting in as many weeks, Brian Leehan, a freelance writer working with the McLeod County Historical Partnership, approached the council in hopes of adding to his list of names and numbers to document the history of McLeod County. He was also at the most recent Brownton City Council meeting.
