Lampasas City Council was a suitable forum for soon-to-retire Police Chief Tim Angermann to be honored. A preparedstatement was read by Assistant Chief Sammy Bailey before the Council which said that her boss had been selected to receive a National Service Award from the American Police Hall of Fame for his years of service. Tim Angermann went to work for the Lampasas PD prior to 1975 as a Dispatcher, then soon became a Police Officer at the age of 19. He was with the Lampasas PD until 1981, then left for work as a Lampasas Sheriff’s Deputy. He became an investigator there and a member of the Narcotics Task Force and Chief Deputy. He came back to the Lampasas PD in 1993 as an investigator, and was given the job as Police Chief in 1998. He has served law enforcement and the public for 42 years.
Asst. Chief Bailey noted that an award, presented to the Chief before council was one handed down by the Texas Commission on Law enforcement, prior to his nomination for the National Service award, but that the Lampasas PD and its members highly recommend that he receive the Distinguished Police Service Award.
Chief Angermann’s family came into the room for the ceremony and the emotionally moved policeman had to stop at least once to pull out a handkerchief and wipe his eyes.
In other business the City council backed up a bit on their move to purchase the $143 thousand rest room for Turner Field. They tabled the awarding of a purchase order on the building from a Marble Falls company in order to allow the City Manager to seek bids from local contractors on an on-site-built facility that might be less costly and still meet specs.
The installation bid for a new elevator for the old City Hall building renovation was awarded to RKJ Construction for just under $120 thousand, some Airport Zoning Board of Adjustment members were reappointed and a Polar Bear Plunge Swim Event was agreed to by the Council for January 21st (B-r-r).
