Three permits were presented to the Council for review. Badding Construction for the OCSD HS Renovation/Addition at 732 W. Division, Ethan and Charise Bailey for a fence at 214 SW 3rd Street, and RCB Construction for a new construction home at 872 N. 1st Street.

 

Department Reports were presented. Lori Reutter had previously reported that there was some leaking in the library roof. The Library Board had received 2 bids for repair for the roof, however, the original contractor (Andrew’s from Carroll) came in and were able to fix the leaks present thus far for roughly 1/3 of the cost of the other 2 estimates. They also returned today to ensure with recent rains that the leaks were fixed. Summit Fire had also done work at the library recently and their labor came in higher than their original estimate due to finding a short in a line that had to be repaired as well as some detectors that hadn’t been hooked up after remodel.  City Clerk Melanie Elbert noted the city offices will be closed on Wednesday May 16th as Clerk, Administrator, and a few council members will be attending a Nuisance Abatement conference in Ames.

 

During public comment citizen Gail Rodgers asked for an update on if the City would be doing anything with Ragbrai coming thru.  Administrator Clausen provided the Council with details on the route, the closing of Walnut to host the festivities and vendors, and a time line of when the City had to have activities wrapped up by. Council Member Lori Anderson informed the Council that the Ogden sign near the storage units on Haws was ruined by the recent wind. The contractor/installer was here this week and said that they have never seen this type of thing with these signs and that an insurance claim will need to be filed. She is unsure if it is a claim to the sign company, sign installer, or City’s insurance. She will be doing more investigating into the matter.

 

Relay for Life Proclamation was tabled until the June 12, 2018 meeting.

 

Mayor Denny Good informed the Council of the Dear Senior Proclamation presented by YSS that he had previously signed.

 

Don Batt spoke on behalf of the Boone County Freedom Flight committee regarding their interest in placing a bench in honor of the Boone County Veterans. The committee would pay all costs for the dark granite bench. It measures approximately 4 feet in length and would be placed on a granite slab so that it would not require mowing underneath it. Council expressed their interest and stated that the City would approve. The location is to be determined.

 

Public Hearing Mayor Good closed the regular meeting at 7:26 p.m. to open the Public Hearing for the 2017/2018 City Budget Amendment. No comments were received.

 

Mayor Good closed the public hearing and entered back into regular session at 7:28 p.m.
