Ostrander discusses EDA


Fri, Jan 29th, 2010
Posted in Government

The monthly meeting of the Ostrander City Council was called to order at 6:00 p.m. by Mayor Schwenn. All council members were present.

Motion by Thompson, and seconded by Kunert and unanimously carried to accept the consent agenda.

Visitors: N/A

Department Heads

Darrell Berg-was present. We got lucky with the sewer plant that it didn't get any colder so it would freeze. We now have the heater replaced and everything is back in running order. Darrell came in on Sunday to replace the chlorine tank because on Friday it was getting low and he didn't think it would make it through the weekend. It is thought that all bills should be coming in now so we can turn them in to the insurance company for the sewer problems.

Brian Miner (Fire Chief)--was present. There were no calls, except they went to assist with a house fire in Cherry Grove. He was questioned on why we needed new turnout gear for Cheryl Perry, it was thought that there should be extra from the ones that retired. Brian commented it was because Cheryl was so much thinner and taller that the ones on hand wouldn't fit her. He brought before council a Mutual Aid Agreement with Chester stating that if Ostrander is called to help with a fire that we will not charge them for our services, damage, or reimbursing pay for fire-fighters and they will not charge us if we need to call them for help. Motion was made by Christenson, seconded by Thompson and unanimously carried to accept the Mutual Aid Agreement with Chester, IA. Brian was also questioned about the generators being ready for use. There are some electrical parts that are needed to be gotten from our old one in LeRoy. One runs and is useable and the other did turn over, just needs some parts and maintenance. Wondering if they are movable, one is on a trailer, but it was thought it may be a good idea to replace one for when it may be needed since we only have one trailer. It was also questioned if they should be sitting outside and Brian commented that they are meant to be outside. The city actually owns the generators, not the fire department, but they will do the up-keep of them.

Tom Mosher (Police Chief)--was absent but left a report for Mayor Linda Schwenn to read:

•December 1st, investigated a $100 check forgery; this will be charged at a felony level because this individual has been convicted of this within the last 5 years;

•December 2nd, completed all-day practical use of .....
