Council struggles with Coffee Street Bridge project

After patiently waiting for two tardy council members, Mayor John Brose called what turned out to be an orderly and uneventful October 1, 2001 Lanesboro City Council meeting to order. By this time all council members as well as City Attorney Tom Manion, City Administrator Barb Hoyhtya, and City Clerk Rita Peterson were present and ready for business.

As is traditionally the case, Additions to the Agenda and the reading of the previous meeting’s Minutes opened the proceedings and both were quickly disposed of with only minor additions and corrections. These were then followed by a report on the Coffee Street Walking Bridge Project by WHKS & Co. engineer Al King, which proved by far the hot topic of the evening.

King began by informing the council that costs thus far incurred by the City only covered Phase One of the Walking Bridge Project and that some additional spending would be required if the project is to continue moving forward. These necessary expenditures include approximately $3,000 to complete official bridge certification as mandated by state statute (Phase Two), a procedure that King stated could be "quite time consuming."

Some preliminary aspects of Phase Three of the project, including trail and parking lot access, lighting, and the relocation of the existing ball field water line, which runs across the Root River under the bridge, would also need to be studied.. This, of course, requires still additional funding by the City, although exactly how much of the projected $26,000 total cost of completing all of Phase 3 remains in question.

Naturally this sparked a lively discussion. Councilwoman Peggy Hanson asked multiple questions regarding what portions of these costs would be covered by Lanesboro’s pending ICED TEA Bridge Project grant, how much would be the City’s responsibility directly, and whether other sources of revenue, such as DNR Trails and Waterways funding, might possibly help cover some of the projected expenses.

In response to the latter, City Administrator Barbara Hoyhtya noted that "no DNR grant money is available for lighting," although other aspects of project may be at least partially funded by Trails and Waterways.

Councilman Hal Cropp next suggested that “a cleaner breakdo .....
