January 29, 2020 Special Meeting Minutes

STATEMENT OF COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS

January 29, 2020

The Ogden City Council met in Special Session with the Ogden School Board on Wednesday, January 29th, 2020 at 5:05 p.m. in the Ogden High School media center. Mayor Denny Good presided and School Board President Pete Bergstrom called the meeting to order. Members present were Councilman Jason Weber, Councilman Dave Ohlson, Councilman Brian Reimers, Councilwoman Lori Anderson and Councilwoman Margaret Liston. City staff present were City Clerk Melanie Olesen, City Administrator Emily Clausen, Street Superintendent Dan Buzzell and Rec Coordinator Jessica Christensen. Additional attendees present were School Board Members Pete Bergstrom, Matt VanSickle, Leda Burton, Camille Sloan-Schroeder, Pete Thomsen, Board Secretary Christine Oien and Superintendent Dr. Pam Dodge and nine guests.

 

School Board President Pete Bergstrom updated those present on his recent conversation with the Ogden City Council. He wanted the two entities to come together and begin having conversations on how to proceed with the Howe School property. The school board has set some guidelines 1) that whatever happens needs to benefit the  community 2) fit within the timeline of five years with no kids in the building, June 1, 2019 being the first date with no kids in the facility 3) if the building remains do they split the property so ballfields could remain for community use. Bergstrom asked council their thoughts and what they don’t want to see there.

 

The property is currently zoned residential. Dave Ohlson would like to see a housing development. Jason Weber voiced his concerns with the property being used for rehabilitation services. We want to be careful what type of business could be located in the area. Lori Anderson doesn’t want to see a trailer park. Brian Reimers also noted he would not lie it to be used for storage buildings, with cars and trailers, etc. sitting around. If it was wanted for commercial use, we would need to revisit the zoning. Bergstrom thought an easy split of the property would be leaving the fields as the north half approximately 7.1 acres and the south half approximately 5.6 acres for other use. A thought was mention of deeding the property to Legacy for housing. Pam Dodge noted the school can run into legal issues when donating property. The school could not donate to Legacy but could gift the property to the City.

 

Matt VanSickle talked about recent surveys done that resulted in the community needs of housing for 55+.  There may be grants out there to help with this type of housing. Surveys also resulted in the need for apartments, rentals, moderate to higher income housing.

 

Mayor Good would like to put a committee together to address the needs/wants of the city side. The school board currently has a facilities committee in place. The school in in no rush to do a land transaction but wants to have some thoughts and ideas of what the community wants.

Public comment. Jessica Christensen spoke to the group as the Rec Coordinator for the City.  She stated the city has to have the ball fields, there is no other available space in town to provide that. The city has been in limbo for a couple years on making any major updates to the concessions/restroom facilities due to uncertainty of the facility.  There are young families that want to have their children involved. We can’t take away these programs. She suggested if the building needs to be taken down then the whole area could be used as a recreational area for our youth. Soccer fields, ball diamonds, a future rec center, after school programs.  She has parents that want to help in clean up and repair. Dave Huntley agrees with Jessica that if housing can’t be made turn it into something for youth, soccer fields, skate park, etc. The current playground equipment was also discussed in public comment. It is believed it should all be removed, on the east side. Dan Buzzell agreed the playground equipment would not be utilized and would need removed if the city owned the grounds and this would be a great area for recreation. Linda Trudo was in favor of senior housing but likes the idea of youth activities taking this area. Dave Ohlson and Gary Paulsen gave a little history of the grounds and who helped to put these ball fields in place.

 

There was conversation of the city maintaining the ball field side of the grounds. Electric, water/sewer and mowing would need switched over. Matt VanSickle reiterated that the building is a beautiful architectural building and it would be a tragedy if we don’t repurpose it.  He recommends getting a committee together to work on that. The city will get a committee together to discuss options and budgeting ideas.

 

Motion by Reimers, second by Liston, to adjourn at 6:20 p.m.

Ayes: All Present, Motion Carried.

There were no permits in December for review.

 

Department Reports were presented. Sewer Superintendent Chad Thede reported the software issues with the new systems are being resolved. The only item to finish up is the heating issues.

 

Public Comment. Digby Worgan spoke to the council about the numerous break ins at the pharmacy. He wondered if the council would consider adding cameras to the downtown business district. He would not want the pharmacy to close. Mick Bailey has been working with Patti Swanson to figure out some options. Legacy has also discussed options. City Administrator will look into getting some quotes from security companies. Pete Bergstrom spoke to the council about Howe School. The school is working to figure out what will benefit the community and not have the property be a liability. He would like to have the school board and city council have a work session to look at options for the property. He would like council to think about what the community would like to see there if the building was re-purposed or what could be there if the facility was gone. The property could be split so that the city could retain the ball fields and the south section for businesses or a housing development. The school will take down the building five years from the date of no students in the building. Dave Huntley asked if a survey from the community would help to see what is wanted. Let’s start conversations on what the next step will be with a joint meeting. Wreaths Across America retirement day to remove wreaths from Veterans graves will be held on February 22nd.

Kris Blocker from the Boone County Convention and Visitors Bureau updated the council on Boone County tourism. She gave out copies of the 2020 Boone County magazine that is distributed to Iowa’s 14 welcome centers and at travel shows. Other ways to help contribute is to volunteer for the Iowa State Fair booth. The City of Boone gave $60,000 to support tourism which is $10,000 down from the previous year. Kris asked the council to consider helping with their efforts.

One permit was presented for review. Douglas Haase for a 7×14 enclosed porch at 525 NE 4th Street.

 

Department Reports were presented. Street Superintendent Buzzell reported he has his new brine tank and he lost turbo in the plow truck. Fire Chief Sturtz reported the SCBA equipment has been ordered and our grant funds were received from FEMA. The new jaws of life equipment are here and was funded by Monsanto and Good Trust. He will be ordering new fire trucks in January with approval from the rural fire board. Police Chief Bailey reported four signposts were vandalized and now repaired.

Two permits were presented for review. Maury and Johanna Ruble for a chain link fence at 438 Peterson Drive and Gerald Duff and Margaret Liston for a new construction home at 338 SW 2nd Street.

 

Department Reports were presented. It was noted the city hall office will be closed for Thanksgiving November 28th and 29th and for a budget workshop on December 5th. Chad has been busy with startup and training at the plant. Twenty-six loads of sludge has been hauled. The fire did not cause any issues with the treatment plant. Mick noted everyone is still burning leaves and wondered if the ban should be extended. Council agreed to extend until November 30th. Discussion to change the ordinance to November 30th every year. Lori Reutter reported 137 kids participated in trunk or treat. A new website BrainFuse will be rolled out the end of the week to help with homework.

 

Public Comment. Jean Mallicoat would like the council to consider a stop sign at SE 2nd and Division rather than the yield signs due to increase in traffic with the new Casey’s. James Comer has concerns about speeding on SW 5th Street. He would like the council to explore options for speed control on that road, possibly speed bumps or more patrol. Mayor Good understands his concerns and will visit with Dan Buzzell, Street Superintendent. Jason Weber suggested some education at the school. Mick shared that sidewalks may help with safety concerns along that roadway as well. Jean Mallicoat asked to consider sidewalks be proposed for Casey’s. David Roberts has concerns about widening the roadway at the new Casey’s location. His home is very close to the property line. He has concerns about increased traffic. He wondered what the timeline is for construction. There was also questions regarding the type of road and if there would be curb and gutters.

 

Mayor Good took a moment to thank the Ogden Volunteer Fire Department, officers, department heads, all of the neighboring fire departments and everyone involved in the recent fire of the Ogden Mart. Whether you provided food, drink or volunteered in any way thank you. It was extremely interesting and motivating to see the number of people that came out to see and lend a hand wherever they could. Thank you again one and all.

 

Public Hearing. Mayor Good closed the regular meeting at 7:29 p.m. to open the public hearing for the usage variance request for Casey’s Marketing Company. Casey’s is requesting a business variance for 114 E. Veterans Drive. Council was presented with the required signatures from residents within 300 feet radius of the property as well as a drawing of the proposed plans. Emily noted they have met the requirements of the usage variance request.

 

Greg Broussard of Bolton & Menk, Inc. represented Casey’s. The preliminary plan is to widen the street to the south. The roadway will be concrete with curb and gutter. The roadway is offset now. They did not survey Mr. Roberts property, so he is not certain how close he is to the right-of-way. Anderson would like him to address turning truck traffic east from First Street. They will look at turning movements and work with the city to address this. They currently have plans to have truck traffic run on their property and keep them from parking on the street. Diesel station will be on the east end and regular stations on the west side. Comer asked what protocol is for the old building. It depends on the individual store. Typically, they are sold. The tanks would be pulled, and site cleaned as well as the awnings removed. There has been some interest in the building already. Timeframe for construction to begin would be spring. It takes 4-5 months to build the site itself. There was a question regarding truck traffic. They are not expecting to pull in much highway semi traffic but more local trucks for the diesel station. Roger Christensen asked about a traffic impact analysis. One has not been done for this site as it is not required. Mayor Good thanked everyone for their questions and good conversation in regard to the Casey’s location.

 

Mayor Good closed the public hearing and entered back into regular session at 7:44 p.m.

 

Motion by Reimers, second by Ohlson to approve the proposed usage variance for Casey’s Marketing Company.

Lance Aldrich updated council on the WWTP project. Wednesday will be the completion walk through. They are working on a change order to include more rock around the facilities.
