Unapproved meeting minutes

The regular meeting of the Peterson City Council was called to order by Mayor Lee on September 9, 2009. The first order of business was a question and answer discussion regarding the yellow curb marking and mail box drop issues, which were tabled from last month's meeting. Present at the meeting were Kim Chiglo and Attorney Terry Chiglo representing Chiggy's Liquor. Terry Chiglo addressed the various issues regarding the parking situation at Chiggy's Liquor and indicated that they hoped to find an amicable solution to the problem. Mr. Justin Brown was present representing the U. S. Post Office and pointed out the importance of maintaining easy access to the mail drop box. City Attorney Tom Manion reviewed the legal and statutory requirements of the city regarding pedestrian crosswalks, parking and public safety. After discussing all of these various issues a motion was made by Jan Smaby and seconded by Chuck Eidenschink to approve a crosswalk diagonally across the road from the south side to the north side of the post office and to maintain a yellow line on the curb 20 feet to the left of the crosswalk as required by law. This motion is contingent upon the United States Postal Service agreeing to re-locate its mail drop box to the other sidewalk in front of city property. The motion was carried. Mr. Manion reminded the council that yellow paint on a street curb means NO PARKING according to the National Traffic Standard as defined in its manual and it is illegal to park along a yellow curb.

Following this discussion, Jan Smaby made a motion to approve the minutes from last month's meeting and Randy Benson seconded it. Motion was carried and the minutes are on file in the clerk's office. A motion was also made by Jan Smaby to approve the treasurer's report and was seconded by Tim Hallum. Motion carried.

In old business, Mayor Lee informed the council that the bid process for the city's sewer plant has been delayed due to the decision by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to review and act first upon those projects that are receiving federal stimulus funds. The mayor believes these reviews and bids should be completed by the end of October 2009. The loan agreement, grant and sewer design are all done so the city is currently just waiting for approval from the MPCA. Jan Smaby suggested that a letter be written to the MPCA and the state legislative officals should further delays in approval occur p .....
