Ostrander's city wide clean-up


Fri, May 28th, 2010
Posted in Government

The monthly meeting of the Ostrander City Council was called to order at 6:00 p.m. by Mayor Linda Schwenn; Police Chief Tom Mosher was absent.

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

Visitors: Carole Hodson, Arlene Bestor, Pauline King, Mark Mills, Matt Litwiller, Janet Webb, Darrell Becker, and Jason Sethre.

Jason from the Fillmore County Journal (SMG Web Design) was here to discuss the setting up of a website for the city of Ostrander. The yearly price for this went up on May 1st, but since Rhonda contacted him last month, he would still honor the previous rate of $300/year. There was much discussion on what we would like and what Jason feels they will be able to offer the city of Ostrander. Motion by Thompson, seconded by Kunert and unanimously carried to hire SMG Web Design to set up a website for the city of Ostrander. Rhonda will be in contact with Jason.

Matt Litwiller and Janet Webb were present to discuss some of the changes that have been made to the Co-op's operation. There has been a wind speed variable added to measure wind speed, and when the wind speed is less than 10 mph, only one fan is running. As wind speed picks up, another fan will turn on to keep the tarp sealed to the pile. There are a total of three fans when needed. Mark Mills commented that the noise has been a definite improvement and he appreciates their attempts to fixing this. They were also interested in finding out more about the website set-up. It was also discussed about the Co-op's 100th Year Anniversary Open House on Wednesday, June 23rd, from 4 to 7 p.m., at the Co-op site. There will be a site tour, food, music (DJ), and a children's inflatable. They would like for the whole city to be involved!! The Co-op was started in May of 1910, 20 years after the city of Ostrander was established.

Department Heads
