Two permits were presented for review. Jay and Dianne Michael for a 15’x25’ room addition at 274 SE 2nd Street and Cole Pearson for a garage addition at 220 E Division St. Mayor Good noted that building permit projects are to be complete within one year.

 

Department Reports were presented. Lori Reutter thanked the council for attending classes in September. She also welcomed council to a program this Thursday at 6:30 about POW’s in Iowa. Chad updated council on the new facilities and stated they had no issues with the last rain of 3.25 inches. Some intakes still needed cleaned out, but things are running better. Lori Anderson updated the council on street signs. The directional signs have been removed to get updated with the new school locations. The sign on west highway 30 is also being repaired. Emily updated council on an item Robin Good brought last month. We do not qualify for the electric charging stations through MidAmerican. The fire department received the FEMA grant of $90,000 for new SCBA gear. We were declined a grant with FireHouse Subs. The Ray Henrickson family spoke with Mayor Good in regard to placing a bench in his memory at the city park. Melanie reminded Council that the City Hall Offices will be closed Thursday and Friday October 17th-18th as staff will be in Des Moines for fall IMFOA conference.

 

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. This would create less maintenance and mowing down the road. A punch list will be done to finalize projects. Currently the project is 5 months late. They hope to finalize the project with council at the December meeting. Still waiting to hear on a State of Iowa grant.
