Red Ribbon Week promoted in Chatfield


Fri, Oct 12th, 2012
Posted in Chatfield Education

Sisters Mariah (standing) and MaKayla Pederson promote the Red Ribbon campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of illegal drug use and the abuse of alcohol especially among young people.

Chatfield students MaKayla and Mariah Pederson promoted this campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of illegal drug use and the abuse of alcohol at the council’s October 8 meeting.

Red Ribbon Week is to be October 23-31 in Chatfield. The national campaign is sponsored by National Family Partnership. The Chatfield SADD Chapter is encouraging the campaign, as research has shown that young people who avoid the influence of drugs and alcohol are not as likely to engage in behaviors that are self-destructive and that can be harmful to other people and their property.

Pump Repairs

Darryl Haner, Wastewater Treatment Plant Superintendent, explained that Quality Flow Systems has completed the annual inspection of all the pumps at the plant and at the remote lift stations. Two pumps need repair, including a scum pump with a seal failure and a reed bed drain pump with a damaged cord. The cost to rebuild one pump and to repair the cord on the other will be about $3,700 plus tax. The council approved the repairs.

Other Business In Brief

•Police Chief Shane Fox stated that three vehicles are cleared for sale. Two were abandoned vehicles and one was an alcohol related forfeiture. The sale of the vehicles was authorized.

•Mayor Don Hainlen listed items discussed in the Public Works Committee. There has been a request for handicapped parking in front of the VFW which will be discussed with people at the VFW before any action.

There will be discussions with residents adjacent to Outlot B before action is taken.

Thirty-five areas needing work have been identified during the sanitary sewer televising project. Councilor Ken Jacobson noted this will be costly. He suggested prioritizing will be necessary. It will have to be decided if the improvements can be paid for with the levy or if bonding will be needed. This issue will be discussed at an upcoming meeting of the Committee of the Whole.

Hainlen said the trees on Main Street have matured to the point that they are causing the sidewalk to heave up, making a “trip hazard.” Jacobson added it will have to be decided if we take them out this fall or leave them another year. Hainlen expects removing the root ball will disturb the sidewalk, which will have to be done in order to plant new trees. Replacing these trees with new younger trees will be expensive. This issue will be discussed with bu .....
