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 by Thompson, and seconded by Christenson and unanimously carried to accept the consent agenda.

Visitors: Ann Keim, Richard Peterson, Darrell Becker

Ann Keim from the First State Bank Building of Spring Valley was here to discuss our insurance coverage. Motion by Christenson, and seconded by Thompson and unanimously carried to leave the liability coverage as is. The resolution was signed to keep the liability the same as 2009.

Department Heads: Darrell Berg-was absent. Jimmie Dean was present to speak in his place. Everything seems to be going good right now. Wheeler's Electric was here and finished hooking up the generator and we did have it running. Now they would like to set up a time to hook it up to be sure it is operational. The door on the sewer plant was rusted and the wind blew it open and his boot went through it a couple of weeks ago. They went ahead and ordered one from Twin City Hardware; it is galvanized so it shouldn't rust. Dave Schwenn will install the door for us. Jimmie did take the time to paint the door jams and caulk some areas that required it. Jimmie did suggest that we do need to get a larger air compressor than what we have at present time.

Brian Miner (Fire Chief)-was absent. Jimmie Dean was present to speak in his place, too. There was a fire about one-and-a-half weeks ago and they had four to five firemen respond. Everything went well. Brian has applied for a DNR Grant to try to get more needed equipment.

Tom Mosher (Police Chief)-was present. Since he was absent at the last meeting, he reported on some things back in April, too. On April 2 responded to a family dispute; April 8 three young kids dialing 911 from phone booth; April 12 trespassing on commercial property; April 18 robbery on commercial property; April 19 practical use of force training costs were split between Fountain and Ostrander; April 22 felony warrant on a female in town who was picked up after a short foot race and also staying in a house where there were illegal plants being grown. The No Pets allowed sign was shredded in the community center, and working on the Jake Brake ordinance was brought up again, and according to the ordinance, it isn't allowed in town, but we should just need to order the signs to post it. There is one Ostrander sign that has been taken .....
