Cancer benefit motorcycle ride


Fri, May 2nd, 2014
Posted in Chatfield Government

Jeff Hare, Jac’s Bar and Grill, detailed plans for a 150-mile biker ride at the Chatfield City Council’s April 28 meeting. Mayor Russ Smith was absent.

Hare reported that local bikers have put together plans for a cancer benefit ride on May 17. He requested that Second Street be closed from Highway 52 to the alley to provide a “safer” area for some of the expected 150 to 200 bikers to park, taking parking pressure off of Main Street. The ride will end at the bar and grill.

In addition to the ride, the day-long events will include a silent auction, raffle, and a dance with music provided by Stock Rocker. Proceeds will be donated to Eagles Cancer Telethon.

The council approved the closing of a portion of Second Street, as requested, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

2014 Street Projects

City engineer Dillon Dombrovski reported that they were ready to place ads for contractors for the 2014 street projects. Bids are expected to be opened after Memorial Day with awards occurring early in June. The agreement between the Chatfield EDA and the project developer along Twiford Street could affect the schedule.

Councilor Robert Pederson said that extra insulation of water mains will be installed to guard against freeze ups, citing the problems with freeze ups over this past winter.

Dombrovski expects construction to occur between July and October. The projects should be completed in 2014 except for final finishing tasks like seeding. A resolution was adopted approving plans and specifications and authorizing the advertisement for bids.

Other Business In Brief

•City wide garage sales are planned for May 3 and city-wide pick-up is scheduled for May 5.

•Tony Lammers reported that he had three quotes to replace the 2008 Kubota front deck mower. He noted that they were looking at rear discharge decks for safety reasons. Councilors approved the purchase of a John Deere with a 72-inch deck as recommended by Lammers and by the Park and Recreation Committee. The purchase will cost $16,881.03 with trade. The John Deere will cost more, but Lammers said they wanted to try it, as they thought it might be a better deal in the long run if they could sustain less equipment repair issues and have a higher resale value.

•Lammers reported that the hockey boards that have been put up for years are rotting out. He had placed a $5,000 bid with pu .....
