Ostrander discusses "no burn" policy


Fri, Apr 30th, 2010
Posted in Government

The monthly meeting of the Ostrander City Council was called to order at 6:00 p.m. by Deputy Mayor Thompson. Mayor Linda Schwenn and Darrell Berg were absent.

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

Visitors: Carole Hodson, Arlene Vestor, Lois Hanson, Mark Mills, Arden and Marge Lenz, Norbert Skaran, Lloyd Start, Terry Stackshouse, Matt Litwiller, Jason Boynton, Ben Turnquist, Cheryl Perry, Jerry Wolfe, Tanner Wolfe, Kali Wolfe.

Jason Boynton and Ben Turnquist were present from Smith, Schaffer & Associates to go over our audit (financial report for 2009).

Matt Litwiller was present from the Ostrander Farmers Co-op to answer questions and concerns from residents about some anonymously sent paper clippings regarding noise pollution that were sent to the city office and other concerns about the corn chaff around town. After some discussion, Tom Mosher stepped in with some decibel readings he had gotten around town and some information on decibel readings describing what is normal and what is above normal. The readings that were taken around town were within normal range. He brought up how he and Rhonda were on Main Street and the car that passed by was louder than the noises around town. There was much more discussion on the noise and corn chaff flying around. Matt mentioned that there is a silencer on the fans but he is still looking into more options that can be done to help with these issues. In June the Co-op will be having their 100th Anniversary-Grand Opening. It was brought up that you need to accept the good with the bad and mentioned about what an asset the Co-op is to our farming community, between taxes and the convenience of it. There were some suggestions made to maybe help and Matt is willing to look into this.

Marge Lenz was present to represent the Ostrander Lions to get their gambling permit for the Wolf's Den renewed for another period of two years. Motion was made by Kunert and seconded by Christenson and it unanimously carried to renew their permit.

Merlin mentioned that at the fireman's sandwich dinner it was brought to his attention of the ceiling in the entryway of the community center. Larry Christenson volunteered to take the paint off and repaint and Mel O'Groske offered to spackle it. We will be getting a quote on this job.

Department Heads: Darrell Berg-was absent.
