Posted in Government

Mayor Donivee Johnson called the regular February meeting of the Canton City Council to order. Those present were: Cindy Shanks, Carl Ernst, Ross Duckett, Jon Nordsving and Lolly Melander. Hank Selden was absent. Visitors present were Barb K, and Jamie and Holly Knutson.

Lolly Melander read the minutes from the previous meeting which were approved as read. A motion was made by Carl Ernst and seconded by Ross Duckett to pay the bills as presented to the council. Motion carried.

Next on the agenda was Jon Nordsving with an update on the wastewater treatment plant. In spite of the clarifiers freezing one day this month, Nordsving reported that the plant was working well. In other concerns he mentioned that the snowplow broke again, but said that Russell Richardson was able to fix it. It was also reported at this time that the siren is here, but it remains in storage until spring.

New Business

Jamie and Holly Knutson inquired about building a detached garage in their back yard. The council explained to the Knutsons that they would need to get a building permit or a variance from the county. They estimated the garage to be 36 x32. Council advised the Knutsons that they needed to present specs and a blueprint of the garage to the Fillmore County Zoning Office in order to obtain a building permit. The matter was tabled until a permit is obtained. In other new business it was brought to the council's attention that a street light is out on Oak and Fillmore Street. Lolly said she would contact Tri-County and report the outage.

Old Business

Zeke Zafft is still working on obtaining funds for his liquor license. Matter was tabled.
