Mabel-Canton junior class brings proposal to city council


Fri, Sep 27th, 2013
Posted in Canton Government

By Hannah Wingert

Representatives of the Mabel-Canton junior class addressed the city council to ask permission to plan a 5K fundraiser event on October 19, 2013. A route has not yet been determined, but they are planning to use Steam Engine Park and several roads through the City of Mabel. The city will need to close the roads to traffic during the 5K. The juniors are planning to distribute flyers to notify residents of Mabel of the race and for publicity. City Clerk Karen Larson stated that the information could also be included in the utility bills. The council granted the class permission.

Howie Ellis asked the council to waive the ticket he received for a burning violation. He stated that the fire was small and contained and that someone was watching it at all times. The council discussed it further and decided not to waive the fine as it would set a precedent for others.

Sean Welty and Mark Davy from Davy Engineering presented the council with the bids for the wastewater and treatment plant repair project. The bids weren’t as competitive as they would like to see, but were still acceptable. The council approved tentative award to each of the proposals recommended based on Rural Development concurrence and further review by Davy Engineering.

Jeff Harcey was present to discuss the survey done on Cherrywood Drive. The two options available for the council to choose from to move forward with the improvements are to get easements from the property owners or platte the area. He recommended the latter option. No decision was made at this time.

Bud Aasum had previously spoken with the city about his concern for the washout right behind his home and garage. The washout was made worse by the recent flooding and heavy rains, but has been a problem for a while. Public Works Director Bob Miereau was unsure of the best method to handle the washout. The property is in a low-lying area and the surface water naturally follows that route which would make filling in the washout an impractical and short-term solution. Fillmore County Soil and Water Conservation District Director Donna Rasmussen was present at the meeting to discuss the issue with the council and is planning to visit the property to observe the washout. The issue will be discussed further at a later date to provide time to determine some preventative measures for the washout.
