The Mabel City Council met on June 11, 2014 at 7 p.m. All council members were present except Sue Amunrud. The meeting was held at the Meadows of Mabel assisted living center.

The minutes from the April 9, 2014 meeting were reviewed and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

The Lions of Mabel donated a bench to the city to put in front of the Mabel Community Center. The bench was recently installed and City Clerk Karen Larson said that it looks nice.

The Cherrywood Drive improvements are finished. Public Works Department Director Robert Miereau will be putting dust control on the road after it has been packed down a little more.

The council was pleased with the response to the ads and interviews run to raise public awareness about the lack of volunteers for the Mabel Ambulance Service. Over 10 individuals have expressed interest in joining the ambulance crew. Eight or nine of them will be taking a First Responder Class starting this Saturday and several are interested in becoming EMTs or Emergency Medical Technicians. Due to scheduling conflicts for several people, the ambulance service is hoping to run another class in the fall to allow more people to take it.

Mabel-Canton Schools have been using the Mabel Lutheran Church as an evacuation center for the school, but the church will now be locked during the day and unavailable for use by the school. City Clerk Karen Larson was contacted by the school to see if the community center would be an option for evacuations if necessary for the school district. The council discussed and approved the request.

The City of Mabel has been a member of the Minnesota Association of Small Cities for some time now and a renewal notice was sent to the city to remain in the Association. The fee is based on population and is $456.15 for Mabel. The Association works on legislation at the state capitol for small towns and is beneficial to the city. The council approved the membership renewal.

Hoskins Electric is working on the electric and generator at the wastewater plant. They requested an extension of the project to June 30. The extension is needed because Minnesota Energy isn’t able to put the gas in at the plant at this time. The council granted the deadline extension.

The City of Mabel currently has a 2004 Chevy Impala police car that is no longer being used. R .....
