Posted in Government

The regular meeting of the Whalan City Council was called to order by acting Mayor David Rahn on February 1, 2010. Those present were: Larry Johnson, David Rahn, Johnny Halverson, Everett Johnson, Margaret Chiglo and Lolly Melander. The minutes from the previous month were read and approved in a motion made by Everett Johnson and seconded by Margaret Chiglo. A motion was made by Johnny Halverson and seconded by Margaret Chiglo to approve the treasurer's report and bills due for the month. Motion carried.

Butch Culbertson stated concern over evergreen trees on the Larry Johnson property that are getting overgrown and need to be either trimmed or taken down from the property. Lolly said she would talk to Larry regarding this issue. It was also brought up at this time that the road past Ernie Johnson's Garage is very slippery and needs to be sanded. David Rahn said he would take care of this matter.

In old business the Town Hall grant was discussed. In a meeting with Chris Gastner, USDA (Jennifer Sass) stated they would approve $50 to $60 thousand for this project and the city would have to pay the rest. Estimated cost is between $120,000-$150,000. The architect's expense would be $2,650.00, and that needs to be paid at once. The city will hold a public meeting next month for public input into this matter and to see if they want to pursue it. Further discussion was tabled until next month.

In new business it was stated that Lolly and Everett will attend the Lanesboro Rural Fire Department meeting. The second item of business on the agenda was the Whalan Stand Still Parade. A motion was made by Johnny Halverson and seconded by Everett Johnson to donate $250.00 for this event. Motion carried.

Minutes for this meeting will not be approved until the March meeting.
