“Still more bridge concerns”

Mayor John Brose called the November 5, 2001 meeting of the Lanesboro City Council to order at 6:35 PM. Council members Hal Cropp, John Dollar, Kevin Drake, and Peggy Hanson, City Administrator Barb Hoyhtya, City Attorney Tom Manion, and Clerk Rita Peterson were all in attendance and the group quickly disposed of approving the agenda and the minutes from last meeting.

Selective Harvesting

Mayor Brose then recognized Gary Danielson, the first of three people to have business before the council.

Councilman Cropp provided a second to the motion, which passed unanimously.

Museum Employee

Lois Peterson of the Lanesboro Historical Preservation Association then took a few moments to ask that the Council consider adding a permanent part-time employee to the City payroll to help staff Lanesboro’s museum of historic artifacts. This person would work approximately 20 hours per week and would perform such tasks as computer data entry, correspondence, collections management, and other museum curatorial functions. Peterson added that the museum’s need could not be filled by the State’s "Green Thumb Program" or by any other currently available funding option. The council will co .....
