Burr Oak sidewalk


Fri, Aug 13th, 2010
Posted in Government

Chatfield City Clerk Joel Young explained the school district is prepared to work with the city to make a sidewalk a reality along Burr Oak Avenue starting at the school's driveway. The city council agreed at their August 9 meeting to pay for one-third of the cost of the project, which is expected to total $32,737.00. Councilor Ken Jacobson was absent.

The low quote was provided by John Baker Concrete. The city's share will be $10,902.00 with the school district paying for the balance. The sidewalk will be five feet wide and 1,275 feet long.

The council also accepted the low bid from Rochester Sand and Gravel for just over $56,000 for blacktop, curb and gutter, and sidewalk for 450 feet of Industrial Drive starting at Hillside Drive. The engineer's estimate was just over $55,000. Young expects the work to be completed by the middle of October.

Other Business In Brief

•Darryl Haner described the difference between three bids for a mower to clip the reed beds. He recommended accepting a bid from Hammell Equipment for a used machine which has the capacity for several attachments. The council approved the purchase of the used machine plus a sickle bar cutter for $1,950.

Haner said the reed beds are finally coming along nicely and need to be cut on an annual basis after everything freezes. The reeds are hollow and they need to be cut about a foot high to allow oxygen to get down into the bed.

•Acting Mayor Paul Novotny said Joel Young has done more work on the city's preliminary budget for 2011 explaining numbers and answering questions raised at their last Committee of the Whole meeting. The budget will be discussed again at the next meeting of the Committee of the Whole after the next council meeting on August 23.

Young said the Local Government Aid calculation is the trick as the number estimate they get from the state is a moving target. Young noted he has worked out four scenarios. He added they are looking at refinancing Waste Water Treatment bonds.

•A temporary liquor license was approved for the VFW to make beer and wine available at the Center for the Arts before and during intermission of Footloose.
