Posted in Chatfield Government

At a relatively brief November 24 Chatfield city council meeting, the first consideration of the Omnibus Fee ordinance was approved.

Among the increases is a proposed 4.5 percent increase in the base monthly water fee and a 4.5 percent increase per 1,000 gallons greater than 2,000 gallons. The base monthly fee for sanitary sewer is proposed to see a three percent increase with a three percent increase per 1,000 gallons greater than 2,000 gallons.

Other fee increases included increases in ambulance transport charges and fire call charges. A $750 decrease in the fee for an on-sale alcohol license for an applicant who has not held a license in the city for a period of 12 full consecutive months prior to making application has been proposed.

Other Business In Brief

•Councilors welcomed several members of a local Boys Scout troop, who were there to observe.

•A resolution to support the cooperation of Chatfield and the State of Minnesota Highway Department during the 2014-2015 season for snow removal from Highway 52 and from Highway 74 within the city limits was approved.

•Councilor Ken Jacobson reported on Public Services Committee discussions. Fire chief Keith Bradt asked them to consider a 15 year rotation for fire trucks instead of 20 years. There was more early discussion about a police canine unit. Officer Keigley has purchased a German Shepherd for his own personal use and has started training the dog for police work. Jacobson said they will be looking into what it would cost to fund a canine unit.

•Councilor Robert Pederson noted that he is on the board of the Southeast League of Minnesota Cities. The league will be finalizing a list of items to present to state legislators early in 2015, requesting their consideration.
