City Council Claims Reviewed

There was discussion about repair costs of $673.48 for seven street lights, which were damaged. City Administrator, Jerome Illg, believed the damage was caused by State Highway employees when blowing snow. Nobody knows for sure.

Councilperson Gerald Shuck asked that Jerome Illg contact the Minnesota Department of Transportation to see if they caused the damage to the street lights and therefore are responsible for paying for damages. Jerome agreed to follow-up and report back to the council at the April meeting.

Sheriff's Report

January and February activity reports were presented at the meeting.

Park Board Report

It was reported that the Park Board approved naming Sherry Hines as Secretary. Councilmember, Dan Tieffenbacher also stated that Miles Petree will be appointed to serve on the Park Board upon approval from the Mayor. Mr. Petree will need to be present for that appointment.
