Lanesboro City Council Report: Council organizes for the new year


Fri, Jan 9th, 2004
Posted in Features

Neededa few good people willing to serve their community. The city council of Lanesboro at their first meeting of 2004 found the city needs two more members for the EDA (Economic Development Authority) and a volunteer to read a local National Weather Service rain gauge on a daily basis. While the council intends to standardize the application and selection procedure as well as length of term for commissions and boards in the future, they ask anyone willing to serve in these capacities to simply contact city hall to volunteer. Noting that the citizens of Lanesboro are usually very willing to serve the community, the council is trying to ensure that all citizens have a fair chance to help. The council hopes to advertise the EDA openings in the Chamber of Commerce newsletter. Scott Asleben suggested from the audience that perhaps someone at Eagle Bluff might be able to help out with the rain gauge readings.

The council approved the members of the citys varied commissions and boards and set the meeting dates and times for the year. Council representatives on the boards changed somewhat with Joe OConnor switching to the EDA, Steve Rahn to the Park Board, and Peggy Hanson becoming the councils library liaison. Kevin Drake will remain on the Public Utilities and Jerome Halverson on the Planning And Zoning; both cited a need to finish the jobs begun, namely the new generators for Drake and the revision of city codes for Halverson.

In further start-of-the-year business, the council chose the citys official newspaper, the Fillmore County Journal. After the selection of the paper, the Journals editor, John Torgrimson, suggested the council create a form for next years use similar to the one currently used by the county. Bidders would then fill out the form with quotes on specific types of ads, circulation information, and proof of the paper being a legal paper. This would alleviate questions and ensure the official paper was indeed a legal newspaper; something Torgrimson questioned about one of the past official papers.

Associated Bank was selected as the official depository. City administrator Bobbie Torgerson was directed to research ways to save money on monthly service charges. Councilman Halverson commended Torgerson on her efforts to date saying, Due to Bobbies efforts a lot has been cleaned up already.
