Preston City Council Report


Fri, Jan 21st, 2005
Posted in Features

Members of the Preston City Council met for about fifteen minutes to address a few minor issues. The Planning and Zoning Committee had made a recommendation to approve a lot split for Bruce Snitker and Randy Haakenson of Lot 8 along Parkside Drive. Council member Heath Mensink noted that it was tough to build up there and that each part of the split parcel would probably eventually be added to each man’s existing property. The council readily approved the split.

Mayor Kurt Reicks questioned whether there was a more efficient way to handle check signings. Both the mayor and the city clerk must sign every check used to pay for city business. Reicks felt it unnecessary for a city employee to have to run to his office for a signature. City Administrator Joe Hoffman researched the rules and thought it would be a possibility to have a stamp facsimile made of the mayor’s signature. The clerk would still sign each document and the mayor’s signature could be stamped on it. The council is required to approve all bills to be paid. Hoffman said that the list of bills are available by 4:00 p.m. the day of a scheduled council meeting. Hoffman stressed that the most important factor is to keep payment of the bills open to review by the public.

Mayor Reicks made no effort to go ahead with the production of the facsimile. He just wanted to explore the options. It was left that the council could choose to produce a facsimile at any time of the mayor’s signature which could be used after the council’s action.

Announcement

Richard Nelson announced that Rep. Greg Davids and Rep. Dan Dorman of the state bonding committee will be available at a meeting to be held January 21, 2005, at 10:00 a.m. at the bank. Nelson committed to requesting 2.9 million of funding dollars for the completion of the trail from Preston to Carimona.
