Department Reports were presented.

 

During public comment Kit Huntley expressed her concern with fireworks and would like to see them not in town. Rick Sturtz had two hours of his windows being rattled due to his neighbor’s fireworks. He had debris land on his house and was concerned who would be responsible if someone’s house caught fire. He recommends changing the time on the proposed ordinance. Mayor Denny Good is against them be allowed in town. Gail Rodgers said to just set a rule and leave it so there is no grey area. It’s the same for everyone. Dan Buzzell commented not to let the actions of a few irresponsible individuals ruin it for everyone.

 

Motion by Thompson, second by Ohlson to approve a cigarette permit for Dollar General Store.

Council was presented copies of City Codes and Ordinances on Chapter 41.11 Fireworks, Chapter 50 Nuisance Weeds, and Chapter 155 Building Permits. Administrator Clausen would like council to review these ordinances and consider making changes to them. Discussions were held regarding all of the items presented.

 

Motion by Thompson, second by Liston to have City Attorney Lee Johnson draw up a new ordinance that does not allow fireworks in the city limits.

Roll Call Vote, Ayes: Thompson, Anderson, Liston. Nays: Ohlson. Motion Carried.

 

Council would also like City Attorney Lee Johnson to draw up a new ordinance for grass and noxious weeds with limits of 8” residential and 24” agricultural.  Changes will be made for building and fence permits as well.

 

Council reviewed an ordinance enacting a new section for collection of fees for response to vehicle fires or extractions for owners who reside outside the fire department’s first response jurisdiction. Fire Chief Rick Sturtz commented that this would help them with the expenses of cleaning up sites. He makes the recommendation to charge $300 for a car fire and $350 for an extraction requiring the use of the jaws of life. Plus adding an extra charge for materials. Council directed City Attorney Lee Johnson to draw up a new ordinance.
