Mabel City Council meeting


Fri, Oct 23rd, 2009
Posted in Government



The regular meeting of the Mabel City Council met Wednesday, October 14, 2009, with acting Mayor Brian Street calling the meeting to order. Council members present were: Brian Street, Terry Torkelson, Tracy Benson, Kirsten Wyffels, and City Clerk Jim Narum; Mayor Jim Westby was absent. Visitors present were: Melissa VanderPlas, Laura St. Mary, Patty Vatland and Deb Buxengard.

Laura St. Mary, Deb Buxengard and Patty Vatland were present representing the Victorian Gala that will be held November 27th. A discussion was held regarding street closing, fire permit, insurance, etc. It was agreed that this event would be handled in the same manner as prior years.

The minutes from the September 8th meeting were read and motion by Wyffels was made and seconded by Benson to approve the minutes as read. Motion carried by unanimous vote.

The next item of business was a review of accounts payable. After a brief discussion Terry Torkelson made a motion, which was seconded by Kirsten Wyffels, to pay all of the bills presented to the council. Motion carried.

The 2010 health insurance rates was next on the agenda. An 11.8 percent increase was proposed if the current coverage remains the same. However, several other options have been proposed by Agent Wayne Woxland. Employees and city officials have not had an opportunity to study these options, so it was decided to discuss the options at the November meeting after everyone has had time to look them over.

The city clerk requested permission to look into new computer hardware for city hall. It was pointed out that the computer at city hall is between five or six years old and an upgrade is definitely due and would better meet future needs for the city. Council agreed to allow the clerk to obtain quotes for new hardware.

A tree ordinance was next presented to the council for review and approval. After reviewing the ordinance motion was made by Wyffels and seconded by Benson to adopt a tree ordinance for the City of Mabel and to have the clerk publish the ordinance in the News Record after it becomes a part of the City of Mabel Basic Code. Motion carried by a unanimous vote.

Since the regular meeting of the Mabel City Council falls on Veterans Day and government offices are closed that day, motion was made by Benson and seconded by Wyffels to change the regular meeting to Monday, November 9th, at 7 p.m. Motion carried.
