GEORGETOWN — City council members approved spending $58,600 on street-resurfacing work this year. That's $15,000 to $20,000 more than a typical year.
In other council business:
— It voted to have National Wash Authority of Morrison wash the exterior of the city's water tower, at a cost of about $4,800. The exterior of the tower was last washed two or three years ago.
— It voted to order about $9,000 in supplies from UGSI Chem Feed of Vineland, N.J., to renovate the sand filter system at the wastewater treatment plant. The system was last replaced about eight years ago.

Mayor Kay Sanders said the department's fourth, older squad car would likely be sold as well, leaving the city's police with a fleet of three newer cars.
