Third annual cancer benefit in Chatfield


Mon, May 2nd, 2016
Posted in Chatfield Government

Jeff Hare, Jac’s Bar and Grill, made a request at the Chatfield City Council’s April 25 meeting to close a portion of Second St. for the third annual Kick Cancer benefit. Councilor Paul Novotny was absent.

The request to close Second St. from Highway 52 to Twiford St. from 5-11 a.m. on May 21 is to allow space for motorcycles to lineup prior to the ride. When the bikes take off, the barriers will be moved until space is needed later that day when bikes return. Hare requested that police be present when the bikes leave and enter traffic.

This benefit raised about $7,800 in its first year, $14,500 in the second year, and they hope to raise $20,000 this year if there is good weather. Hare said the event is a “very worthwhile thing to do”. The street closure request was approved.

Other business in brief

• A $45,000 economic development loan for David Ries of Ries Auto Stores, LLC was approved as recommended by the EDA. The loan will be used to aid in the purchase and renovation of 441 Main St. N. The loan is to be paid back over 10 years at 4% interest. The loan is secured by a second mortgage on the business real estate and a personal guaranty from Ries. Ries plans to renovate the building and improve the parking area.

• Approval was given to purchase a parcel of land along the westerly side of Mill Creek, between Division St. and Highway 30. The purchase price for the parcel is $10,000 and it will be used for a pedestrian and bike path. City Clerk Joel Young noted the path is in the city’s long term plan to do more trails. The Planning Commission’s review earlier in the month came to the conclusion that the purchase of the parcel fits in the overall plan for the city.

• Police Chief Shane Fox explained he has received two bids for equipment for the new squad car. He recommended the lower bid from Fire Safety USA in Rochester in the amount of $9,947.30. Advanced Graphix will do the graphics at a cost of $993. An additional cost of $269 for a mount for the squad printer was noted. Approval was given for the total package at a cost of $11,209.30 for equipment, graphics and printer mount.

• Authorization was given to request bids for the replacement and installation of new water meters throughout the city of Chatfield. Brian Burkholder said most of the city’s water meters are 24-years-old. The life expectancy of the meters is 20 years. The new .....
