REGULAR MEETING:

MINUTES of the previous meeting minutes were approved as presented upon a motion by Cm.   B. Burton and seconded by Cm. W. Harris, motion carried.

TREASURER’S REPORT AND MONTHLY BILLS:

The Clerk’s Monthly Treasurer’s Report dated July 9, 2013 was examined and approved, showing the following:

                                 Total Funds on Hand                       $231,006.60

All bills and payroll disbursements were examined and approved for payment upon a motion by Cm. W. Harris and seconded by Cm. Burton in the total of $67,180.51 check numbers 11186 through 11245. Receipts since the last meeting were shown as $51,127.43. The checks and stub approvals were signed appropriately by all parties as well as the Payment Approval Reports for July.

BUSINESS TO BE CONDUCTED

Food Bank: Discussion ensued about how to keep the food bank running following the resignation of the administrator. Tom and Jan Pfaff were present for this discussion as well as Vern McMaster. Vern informed the council that LeeAnn McMaster is interested in the open position and has experience working in a food pantry. Mayor Bateman asked Vern to inform Clerk Schmidt if LeeAnn would like to step into the position. It was decided to send a letter to Jamie Johnson and thank her for her work at the pantry and wish her luck in her future endeavors. The council asked to sign the letter.

Airport Property Sale: Clerk Schmidt was asked to email Attorney Johnson and inform him that CJ Air will pay the attorney fees so that the city can proceed with the sale of the city property that the hanger is occupying following a motion by Cm. Zenner and second by Cm. Burton. Motion carried.

Seal Coating – July 22 (or there about): The city has enough chips for half a tanker and the priority road is Walnut. Maintenance Cardwell will review his notes for other priority streets.

Surplus Lots: No buyers for the 12 lots, so the council questioned the idea of subdividing the property. The balance due on the lots will need to be taken care of as of the 25th of July.

Personnel Policy review Travel Reimbursements: The additions to the policy were read and the council approved the additions.

Maintenance Report

Sewer:  We have had a sewer back-up into the Perrine basement on Birch. This short line will be upgraded before fall. City maintenance will finish up the Barnett hook-up after Prairie Day.

Water: Maintenance will be upgrading a dozen or so touch read meters in August. The council was informed of the request to upgrade G. Miller’s meter to a one inch line as she is having a sprinkler system installed.  There is no problem with the current meter so it was agreed that a customer would have to pay for such an upgrade.

Streets: Maintenance will get to painting cross walks, hot patching, crack sealing and preparing for seal coating in July.  The grade work in the alleys looks nice.

Parks: Cardwell reported that we have received several shipments of bench parts and they are not the right parts. The Service League will be selling bags of mulch at the Prairie Day Auction and collecting funds for a sidewalk around the playground equipment. Next year the plan is to create a built in area for the barbecue between the pavilion and the gazebo. Maintenance will have a binder for monthly inspections of park equipment and airport inspections. The Corps of Engineers inspected the levy and suggested that we have sheep eat down the foliage in Long Hollow Creek. They also discussed maintenance issues to improve the dike making note that FEMA money is contingent on maintaining the levy.

RV Park: Dreadfulwater will move to the end of the park as a month to month tenant and he will be informed that he only gets one vehicle space and no couch.

It is important to be able to listen to the needs of your customers and try to help them out. Just like in providing some essay help to college students, the government must try to help its people live better lives.
