The regular meeting of the Peterson City Council was called to order by Mayor Chuck Eidenschink. Council members present were: Tim Hallum, Bill Grindland, Randy Benson, and Rick Lee. Molly Melander, city administrator, was also present. Jan Smaby was absent.

Minutes from the previous month were read and approved along with the treasurer's report and bills due.

In old business

The following items were on the agenda:

• WWTP - bids open: a total of seven bids were received. The lowest bid was $591,243.00 from Wiesser Brothers of LaCressant, MN; second lowest bid came from Plastic Incorp of Red Wing at $595,000.00; and the third lowest bid considered was $626,513.000 from Olympic Builders out of Holman, WI. WHKS (Kevin, engineer) recommended the council award the bid to Wiesser Brothers, contingent with USDA approval. Motion was made by Randy Benson, seconded by Bill Grindland and carried.
