Gilman alderman Mike McGehee listens to alderman Randy Eimen talk about the details of a contract between the county and city for I-Com services.

He said at last night’s city council meeting, the city received the emailed letter Oct. 17, and it stated it needed to be paid by Nov. 20 or the city needed to contact I-Com by Nov. 30 to state it no longer wanted to have its services.
