Still more bridge concerns

Mayor John Brose called the November 5, 2001 meeting of the Lanesboro City Council to order at 6:35 PM. Council members Hal Cropp, John Dollar, Kevin Drake, and Peggy Hanson, City Administrator Barb Hoyhtya, City Attorney Tom Manion, and Clerk Rita Peterson were all in attendance and the group quickly disposed of approving the agenda and the minutes from last meeting.

Selective Harvesting

Mayor Brose then recognized Gary Danielson, the first of three people to have business before the council. Danielson was specifically there to address possible City concerns regarding future tree cutting activities on the Lillian Linde property located on the bluff bordering the old Ox Cart Trail that overlooks the western edge of town. Danielson said that Lillian, who listened patiently from the council chambers second row, wished to harvest her mature Red Oaks and at the same time have him remove a number of diseased and/or fallen trees as well.

Danielson, however, stated that "selective harvesting" was perhaps a more accurate description of the proposed activity, although he did add that at least one sizeable stand of oaks would be cut down and that the effects of cutting would certainly be noticeable. Councilman Drake put the matter to rest by stating that "it is her land and I dont believe the City has much of an interest" in blocking the harvest of trees. Councilman Cropp provided a second to the motion, which passed unanimously.

Museum Employee

Lois Peterson of the Lanesboro Historical Preservation Association then took a few moments to ask that the Council consider adding a permanent part-time employee to the City payroll to help staff Lanesboros museum of historic artifacts. This person would work approximately 20 hours per week and would perform such tasks as computer data entry, correspondence, collections management, and other museum curatorial functions. Peterson added that the museums need could not be filled by the States "Green Thumb Program" or by any other currently available funding option. The council will co .....
