City of Harmony featured in documentary

Posted in Harmony Government

The Harmony City Council met on August 11, 2015 at 7 p.m. All council members were present.

City Administrator Jerome Illg reported that work has begun on the 2016 budget. Illg has also been comparing the model ordinances to Harmony’s current city ordinances.

Illg asked Norby Tree Service to trim the tree branches that are hanging into the streets in Harmony. A notice went out in the utility bills to homeowners with overhanging branches, and Norby will be speaking with them as well before beginning the work.

The City of Harmony will be acting as a fiscal agent for an accessibility study of the community.

The city received a quote from Midwestern Fabricators in the amount of $38,000 for the wastewater plant dome covers. The quote is less than the amount originally estimated, and Kurt Johnson from Stantec Engineering recommended awarding the bid to Midwestern Fabricators. The council approved the bid.

The city is working out the logistics of a driveway to the wastewater plant for the sampling on the outfall line with the property owner of the land needed. They are also putting together some alternate routes if this one doesn’t work out.

Johnson reported that the well project is progressing satisfactorily and that it is currently in the development stage. They have begun to work on producing water and will start pumping next week. At that point, the water will be tested and then a camera will be sent down to inspect the casings. Johnson estimated that the finished cost will be less than the bid amount.

The city only received two bids for the pumphouse. The bids were higher than what the council was hoping to receive. Mayor Steve Donney questioned whether some items could be cut from the project to bring the costs down. The council members discussed cutting some of the computer equipment. Stewart Morem from Morem Electric said that he had run some numbers and that the city could cut out some non-essential equipment for a savings of approximately $21,000 or $55,000. The council approved the bid to Wapasha Construction and plans to work with the contractor to lower costs by putting in change orders.

The council reviewed the colors available for re-painting the water tower. They will make a final decision at the next meeting. Maguire Iron, Inc. has agreed to honor the 2015 quoted price in 2016 for the project.
