Account numbers have changed slightly. The new system requires a 6-digit number. In most cases a "01" has been added to the end of a cus- tomer's regular account number. Other subtle changes may be noticed. For information and questions, call the Boyden city office at 725-2371. Boyden Bits Sioux County Sheriff Dan Altena attended the meeting and discussed law enforcement issues with the councilors. Last month, the city approved renewal of its contract with the Sioux County Sheriff's Office.The contract is for $73,337. Altena explained -- like he did to Hull councilors in April -- that new census figures and the need for an extra pay period caused by a billing anomaly were reasons for the sharp increase in contract law across the county. Beukelman said that Sioux County Sheriff's Office is doing "a good job in the city." During the approval of bills, it was learned the city made a $2,218 purchase to make a street sweeper operational again. Also, Boyden paid $4,000 for a hydrostatic pump at the small lift station located in city limits. The city unanimously approved an agreement with the Iowa Department of Transportation concerning repair of U.S. Highway 18. Continued from front During street superintendent Cody Rensink's report, he said the mosquito sprayer has been delivered to the city of Hull. There's a good likelihood the first spray will take place within the next three weeks. Boyden is still considering purchase of a mower for the Boyden-Sheridan Township Cemetery. The city will also hang on to bulk chain-link fencing it owns. Plus, street patching to repair frost boils is taking place on West Prairie and Sheridan Streets. The city is still haggling with John Beek for replacement of sidewalk in front of his residence at 1119 E. Prairie Street. The ordeal is currently in litigation. Councilors approved one building permit, for a 42x88-foot fence at Alex Miller's property on Pleasant Street.

The Francis's are a super family and it's the right thing to do for them." Bundy and Baartman sent e-mails and made telephone calls to current Indianapolis Colts' tight end Dallas Clark and other nationally-known sports celebrities and uni- versities. "We've had a great response from everybody," Bundy said. "Everybody has been willing to help out." Said Meyn: "We're rais- ing money to offset medical expenses. This is a small town and everybody knows Sondra (who serves as a Title I teacher in both the Boyden-Hull school district and Hull Christian School). We're trying to help in any way we can. And there is some really nice stuff on the website." The amount of items for Sondra's fund-raiser reads like a laundry list. There are several auto- graphed items, tickets to col- lege and professional sport, ing events, gift certificates to local restaurants, gift cards for Wal-mart and Casey's General Store, two gift bas- kets from the Foreign Candy Company, Inc., and a certifi- cate for golf at The Ridge in Sioux Center. The grand prize is a Walt Disney Resort vacation package, which includes stay in a five-star hotel, two passes to the amusement complex in Orlando, Fla., and more.
