Vetou, a five-year- old, male, Belgium Mali- nois, is trained to detect drugs and narcotics. Vetou is also trained as a search and rescue dog. Vetou was purchased from the Lafollette Canine Training Service in Straf- ford, Mo. He began his training at the age of 18 months and for the past few years he has been working in Costa Rica. Some of the drugs he is trained to detect include meth, cocaine, marijuana, pcp, and many others. The addition to the department began his duties last week, after receiving extensive training with his handler, Corporal Kyle White. The dog was also responsible in helping with the detection of drugs and paraphernalia on his first day of duty. LaGrange Police De- partment will use the dog as a deterrent against drugs in the town of LaGrange. Canton makes street plans; raises water/sewer rates Dan Steinbeck PNJ Editor The Canton board of aldermen took a big step toward street repair Mon- day night. The board approved 6-0 an ordinance to enter a personal property lease/ purchase transaction for up to $200,000. It will pay for materials and installa- tion of rebuilding some of Canton's streets. The city hopes to pay off the loan with city funds with 2.95 percent interest in two years. If a sales tax proposal passes later this year, some of those funds could speed the retiring the note. The board approved a separate street list of roads for tarring and chipping of the worst streets in Canton. The board also ap- proved water and sewer rate increases and the mini- mum and the usage. This was approved without op- position. Currently, the rate is $4.90 per each 1,000 gallons. The new rate is $5.00. The new minimum amount for water rates raised from $13.25 to $13.95. The sewer rate usage increased from $3.30 to $3.40 per each 1,000 gal- lons of water. The minimum charge for the sewer increased from $8.25 to 8.85. All increases are monthly. The city said the aver- age customer would see a $31.62 increase for a year, based on an average of 6,000 gallons a month us- age. Aldermen learned a bridge to the South River- front Park, already sched- uled for repair, will cost more to fix than anticipat- ed. The Federal Emergen- cy Management Agency agreed to fund $19,000 for repair, but because of the repair needed, it will cost $42,000. The reason FEMA is involved is due to flood damage to the integrity of the bridge in ,the 2008 flood. City officials say they don't have the extra mon- ey. City officials can't close the bridge, as it is the only access to the boat ramp. The board agreed to have engineer Charlie Bach review it, and will have di- alogue with FEMA and the Missouri Department of Conservation, about extra funding, and expect to re- bid the project. The board, in execu- tive session apparently discussed a personnel is- sue; and reportedly made a decision, but the decision wasn't made public imme- diately, Get phone6 with lot6 helpful eature6 rom U.& CeUular. c>( SAMSUN6 DELVE" Touch Screen After $50 mail-in rebate that comes as a Visa Debit Card.
