No more alcohol served at the Lanesboro fire hall?


Tue, May 10th, 2011
Posted in Government

Lanesboro's Mayor Steve Rahn discussed alcohol policies at the fire hall during the city council meeting on May 2. Rahn said he asked the fire department for a recommendation. He said for years they have always had a "kitty" they used for money, and recently found out that it's illegal. The fire department has decided to get rid of the cash register and will no longer be serving alcohol. If anyone would like to serve alcohol at an event there, they will need a liquor license.

Also, the fire department came up with the policy that if anyone has been drinking any alcohol at all, they will not be able to drive a fire truck or other emergency vehicle. If that policy is broken, the person will be immediately removed from the fire department.

Also, if anyone has been drinking at all, they will not be able to go out on a fire call. Rahn said there is obviously no way to test for that, but that is the policy, and people will have to use their best judgment.

Project Bids

Vickerman shared with the council bids she had received for three different projects. The first was for rock, and the low bid was accepted from Milestone Materials for $7.80 a ton. The prices were for delivery as well, and for all types of rock.

The bid from Morem Electric in Harmony was accepted for the Street Light project at $54,900.

Vickerman recommended the three bids received for the landscaping project be thrown out. The three bids were all over the place, and Vickerman did not believe they are all bidding on the same thing due to communication problems.

Vickerman added that the DNR is paying for the landscaping project in town, not the city.

City Attorney Tom Manion said it would be perfectly reasonable to reject the bids and get more specifics. The council passed a motion to reject them and republish a RFP (Request for Proposals) pending new design work.

Heritage Preservation

Commission

Vickerman shared that the Lanesboro Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC) received a letter from the Minnesota Historical Society stating they are awarding them a grant for $7,500.

Vickerman said they are also planning on sending a letter to Lanesboro residents explaining exactly what the HPC is and what they do.

The council approved declaring May 2011 Heritage Preservation Month in Lanesboro.
