Flood damage to dam being studied

LANESBORO - An evaluation of the damage done to the dam in Lanesboro is being done by Bonestroo Engineering. City Administrator Bobbie Vickerman told council members at their Monday, October 6 meeting that in order for the city to get assistance from FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), there needs to be proof that there was damage done from the flood. The Public Utilities Commission approved the cost of the study, which will assess the entire dam.

"They don't have much of a choice," said Vickerman. She added that the flood in June was the fifth worst flood in the history of Lanesboro. There were repairs done to the dam in 1988 after a flood. A study done in 2002 showed the dam to be in stable condition.

Other Business

• The council extended the Public Hearing for the junk letters until the next meeting, as not all of the people got their letters.

• A summer recreation bill was paid for $758.76. This is the amount that was over the $5,500 budgeted. Vickerman suggested paying it this time, but telling them that next year the city will pay a budgeted amount and can not go over.

• The policy for Liability Auto Insurance was renewed for another year.
