Westby sworn in as Mayor at Mabel City Council meeting

Posted in Mabel Government

The Mabel City Council met on January 14, 2015 at 7 pm. All council members were present.

Jim Westby was sworn in as the new Mayor of Mabel and Melissa Folstad was sworn in as City Council member.

Sean Welty from Davy Engineering presented an update to the Council. Iseler Demolition was able to complete the removal of all of the old standpipe in one day. Iseler issued a payment request in the amount of $20,600 for the completed project. Welty recommended paying the full amount pending approval by Rural Development. The council approved the payment.

Steve Jech and Jerry Brehm from Jech Excavating were present at the meeting to discuss their concerns about payment with the Council. Because Rural Development approval moves slowly for change orders, Jech Excavating has not been paid for work they completed six months ago. Jech said that he understood why his company had not received payment yet, but that his usual method of doing business is to be paid within 30-60 days as they have to pay suppliers. Mayor Westby agreed that that was unacceptable. Sean Welty recommended that Jech sign the current change orders so they could be approved as soon as possible. He will continue to work with Rural Development to ensure that payment to Jech Excavating will be made soon.

A phone line was hit while Jech Excavating was digging. It was noted that the phone company had marked only one line, but there was another unmarked line in close proximity to the one marked by the phone company. An investigation is underway.

The minutes from the December 10, 2014 meeting were reviewed by the council members and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

There was no old business to discuss.

The city appointments for 2015 were made and approved by the Council. The appointments are as follows. Acting Mayor-Terry Torkelson, official newspaper-News Leader, official bank-Bank of the West, city attorney-Richard Nethercut, zoning administrator-Bob Miereau, health officer - Tim Mengis, assistant weed inspector - Karen Larson, fire chief - Tim Mengis, assistant fire chief - Kelly Sand and Brian Erickson, civil defense director - Tim Mengis, meeting nights - second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m., EDA board - Kirsten Wyffels and Jim Westby.
