Canton contends with roaming cats


Fri, May 28th, 2010
Posted in Government

The regular May meeting of the Canton City Council was called to order by Mayor Donivee Johnson. Those present were: Carl Ernst, Hank Selden, Cindy Shanks, Lolly Melander, and Jon Nordsving. Ross Duckett was absent. Guests at this meeting were Barb Kerns and Devry Kerns.

The April minutes were approved as read by Lolly Melander and a motion was made by Hank Selden and seconded by Cindy Shanks to pay the bills as presented to the council. Jon Nordsving expresed to the council that he would make sure gravel for the alleys would be taken care of during the month of May. Regarding the snow plow truck, Jon asked Devry Kerns to come to the meeting with a quote for the city snow truck, and handouts were given to the council members. After reviewing them, the council asked Jon to get one more quote with the same terms. Further action on this was tabled until next month. The next item of business Jon had was the need for new shingles on the pump house. A motion was made by Carl Ernst and seconded by Hank Selden to approve Jon calling Tweten's to put steel on the pump house. This is a carry-over from last year's council approval of the project. Motion carried. Finally, Jon presented a quote from Municipal Pipe Tool Company for $21,180.00 for sewer lining. Since this is not an emergency situation, it was decided to start budgeting for this to take place in 2012.

In new business a reviewed 2009 audit was handed out and then tabled for the next meeting.

The only old business was complaints regarding too many cats roaming within city limits. It was decided that the city will begin processing these complaints in accordance to a change in policy and a notice will be sent to all residents within the city limits.
