Rushford city council concludes with surprise resolution proposal


Fri, Nov 27th, 2009
Posted in Government

With another nearly-packed room, the council nailed down several agenda items at the Monday, November 23rd, meeting. However, an impromptu proposal that was put forth shortly before adjournment, garnered puzzled looks and whispers from the audience, as well as taking a good portion of the focus from other items discussed at the meeting.

Regarding the position of the city administrator, councilor Jim Wolter asked for a resolution to enter into a new employment agreement between the city and Mr. Block. Citing three sections of the current contract, performance evaluation (section 11), termination (section 8), and termination severance pay (section 9), Wolter also asked that a selection of council members move into a discussion with city attorney, Scott Springer, to go over the materials.

With this turn of events, the council recessed for a short break so that Springer could review the documentation. When council resumed, Springer asked the council to adjourn so that he could conference with Mr. Block prior to detailing the issues to the council.

A motion was made by Larry Johnson and seconded by Robert Dahl to table the issue until next month's council meeting. Springer, too, felt that it would be prudent to table the issue, but the motion failed. Wolter then made a motion to appoint the mayor and any other interested councilors to work with Springer. Councilor Nancy Benson expressed interest in being a part of the review.

Springer was then asked to review the materials for errors and omissions and work with the council to ensure that it is completed in a timely fashion. While he was currently working on making minor changes to the city agreements with F&L Development, Inc., Mayor Les Ladewig asked him to make Mr. Block's employment agreement top priority.

It is highly likely that the outcome of this request will be on the agenda for the December 14th council meeting.

Motel & Community Center

The city approved three agreements between the city and F&L Development, Inc. The agreements were in regards to the development, construction and operation of both a community center and motel in the Himlie Business Park.

While two of the three agreements and their details had been discussed for some time, the third agreement, for the development and construction of a community center, was a recent addition to the mix. The change had come following the council's November 9th meeting in which it was determine .....
