Lanesboro City Council discusses ambulance issues


Fri, Jan 11th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Government

Dillon Dombrovski, an engineer with Yaggy Colby and Associates ,was at the Lanesboro City Council meeting on January 4 to discuss the storm sewer project under Riverside on the Root. The city is planning to reroute the storm sewer so that it does not go under the restaurant. It would be plugged and abandoned, and would solve the leaking and erosion problem they have been dealing with.

Dombrovski said that with further investigation, the assessment policy has categorized it as repair and not replacement, and it would not have to be assessed to any property owners. He suggested this winter they get a plan drawn up so they could get a quote on the project in the spring. The quote they received recently was around $50,000, but it could be different in the spring. The council gave him the go-ahead to draw up the plans.

Ambulance

Vickerman informed the council the ambulance service has received four applications from people interested in joining, and they are hoping for even more. She wanted to let the council know that they missed an ambulance call due to lack of coverage, and have contacted the state and done everything necessary in that regard. The Preston Ambulance was able to respond to that call.

Vickerman said they need to work on scheduling issues, and they discussed purchasing EMS manager software that would cost $941 year. Staff would be able to log on and enter what times they are available, and the program would make sure there are always two people on call. She added that ambulance members have been very good at stepping up to help during this shortage.

Mayor Steve Rahn mentioned that Lanesboro has a mutual aid agreement with Preston and Rushford, and said that it’s ridiculous to get fined by the state for not having coverage. “The state is out of line,” he said. “That’s why we have mutual aid.”

No decisions were made, as they are waiting to hear back from the EMSRB (Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board) after their next meeting.

Public Utilities

Council member Joe O’Connor spoke about the projects that were discussed at the recent Public Utilities Commission meeting. They discussed manholes that need to be looked at and repaired, the need to collect data on sewer lining as an option, and the well situation with the well that has high radium levels. There is a possibility the city will have to get a new well, but .....
