Canton approves new gravel


Fri, Apr 30th, 2010
Posted in Government

Mayor Donivee Johnson called to order the regular city council meeting for April. Others present were: Carl Ernst, Hank Seldon, Ross Duckett, Lolly Melander and Jon Nordsving. Cindy Shanks was absent. Ken Fabian and Barb Kerns were guests.

The minutes from the March meeting were approved as read. Carl Ernst made a motion to approve payment of bills due and Hank Seldon seconded the motion. Motion carried.

Concerns from Jon Nordsving was the first item on the agenda. Jon asked the council if he could get more gravel for the city's alleys. The council approved this request. At this time it was also decided that due to overuse and over-sized loads during the spring, Prairie Avenue is in need of repair and graveling. Wilton Construction will be doing the repair work. The council asked Jon to write down what he wants for specs on a city truck and to put out bids for it. Further action was tabled at this time.

In new business, the first item on the agenda was permission to build a deck. Ken Fabian came to the council with this request. Both Lolly and Jon stated to the council that the paved road is not the city's road and he should be allowed to build his deck. Council also stated that he has enough footage so they saw no problem with this project. Lolly said she would call Fillmore County Zoning and explain the situation with the administrator.

A dog attack was brought to the council's attention as the next item of new business. The Fillmore County Sheriff's Department will do a further investigation.

The third item of business was regarding Betty Ehler's tree. According to the council, this tree is a hazard to public safety since it is ready to fall. The council asked Lolly to draft a letter and send to Betty giving her 10 days to comply with removing the tree or else the city will hire someone to take it down and assess it to her taxes.

Finally, in new business it was brought out that the clerk's office has received several complaints regarding the number of cats at large in the city. Council will review the Ordinance on Cats and further action was tabled.

The only old business was the Fillmore County Board of Appeal & Equalization that was held on April 19-22.

Minutes for this meeting will be approved at the May meeting.
