A Cuba man has been charged with three felonies and a misdemeanor for his alleged burglary and theft from the city of Cuba’s Public Works Department on January 2. The burglary took place while the city was experiencing a widespread power outage, and the Electric Department had the largest number of items taken, causing a delay in their work to restore power to the city, as employees had to take additional time to collect and reorganize needed tools.
During their January 7 meeting, Cuba City Council members got an update on work being done on the construction of a new splash park at the city pool. Alderman also approved an ordinance for another tree-trimming contract as the city continues work to keep its power lines free of limbs.
A woman who claimed to be the owner of Boeing and demanded to know why no one was guarding the Cuba airport was taken to jail after fighting with the officer who responded to talk with her.
