Posted in Government

The monthly meeting of the Ostrander City Council was called to order at 6:00 p.m. by Mayor Linda Schwenn; all council members were present.

Motion was made by Thompson and seconded by Christenson and unanimously carried to accept the consent agenda.

Visitors: Lois Hanson, Pauline King

Department Heads:

Darrell Berg-was absent. Mayor Linda Schwenn commented that Darrell told her that the well inspection went well and that the new mower is very nice!!

Brian Miner (fire chief)-was present and reported that there was nothing new and all was going well. He checked with the DNR for another trailer for the generator and they don't have anything available at this time. He was told we need to just keep calling since there is no waiting list.

Tom Mosher (police chief)-was present and submitted the following report: On 9/7 there were letters drafted and sent to the Wolf's Den about the fights and to Cole's residence regarding his chickens. Tom did come with some ordinances from other cities that do allow chickens within city limits and discussed some of the requirements. On 9/9 it was reported that LP tank valves were tampered with, someone complained about harassing phone calls, talked to a dog owner about a dog running at large and his video camera arrived and has been installed. He has gotten training on it. Tom also received a report of dog concerns as the owners haven't been around much, but when he checked, it did have fresh food and water. 9/17 he spoke with Nathan Cole again and said he needed to have the chickens removed by the 19th which he did, but also commented that he would like to still come to council to speak about allowing chickens at his residence. 9/20 there was a report of a dog chasing an individual riding a bicycle. On 9/22 he picked up an individual on an apprehension order and transported him to the crisis receiving unit in Rochester. On 9/24 there was a report of possible gas siphoning and he has been monitoring the area more than usual. Tom made several traffic stops along Main Street. He would like Rhonda to send out reminders in the water bills about the "no parking" along Main Street during the months of November to May. We will need to look at the signs to check the times for sure. The Ostrander Lions donated $500 to Tom for needed equipment. He is very grateful for this. There are many things he can use to make his job safer and be able to do his job better.
