Posted in Mabel Government

The Mabel City Council met on February 12, 2014 at 7 p.m. Council members Susan Amunrud and Terry Torkelson were not present.

Sean Welty and Mark Davy from Davy Engineering presented the council with the bids for the standpipe project. The last time they bid the project out, the bids came back at $100,000 over budget so they had recommended re-bidding. They received two bids the second time, both of which were under budget. The council passed a motion to tentatively award the project to American Structures, Inc. from Menomonie, Wis. for their bid of $272,822.63 based on rural development concurrence.

Davy Engineering also notified the council that construction on the wastewater plant repairs is in the works and should commence in the next week or two. The wastewater will be drained into the reed beds which will be replaced after winter.

The minutes from the January 8, 2014 meeting were reviewed and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

City Clerk Karen Larson updated the council on the Cherrywood Drive improvement project. The easements are ready for the homeowners to sign and be notarized, and then work can begin.

The city received the ambulance subsidy contract from Fillmore County. The City of Mabel will receive $4,500 from the subsidy. The signed contract will need to be approved by the Fillmore County Board.

The council passed a resolution with respect to sub-standard buildings in Mabel.

A motion was approved to place an ad in the Mabel News Record to advertise for the city lawn mowing position during the summer months. The ad will run for apprximately two weeks, and the council will review the applications at the March 12, 2014 city council meeting.

The council received a letter from the Mabel Fire Department regarding a request for pay increases. The council discussed the increase amounts, and an offer will be made to the fire department.

Currently, the City of Mabel’s ordinance for recreational vehicles states that they may only be used in town if there is a medical reason. The council discussed changing the ordinance to allow licensed drivers with a yearly permit to use recreational vehicles in town. The council members will review several other towns’ ordinances regarding the use of recreational vehicles and will discuss it further at the March 12, 2014 meeting.
