Preservation planner Robert Vogel, during the city council’s June 10 meeting, reviewed the history of the award which was first presented in 2009 by the Chatfield Heritage Preservation Commission. The purpose of the award is to recognize an individual or organization that has made use of Chatfield’s historic resources.

Vogel noted the city has played a pivotal role in supporting the library which was built in 1911 with the help of a Carnegie Foundation grant. It was opened in 1915. The library was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. In 1997 the city sponsored a major renovation and added an elevator.

Library Board President Sharlene Owens and Library Director Monica Erickson were on hand for the award.

Grain Bin Rescue Equipment

The Fire Department has raised $3,885 from grants and donations toward the purchase of grain bin rescue equipment and expects to raise even more. The council voted to go ahead and purchase the equipment as recommended by the Public Services Committee at a total cost of $7,339.89, which includes training. The Fire Department’s equipment fund will cover the balance of the cost.

Mayor Russ Smith maintained the money is well spent if it can help save a life down the road.

Other Business In Brief

*The resignation of Matthew J. Opat as Chatfield’s prosecuting attorney effective June 26 was accepted. Opat will be sworn in as Minnesota’s Third Judicial District Judge on June 28. Councilor Ken Jacobson commented that the city is loosing a prosecuting attorney that has done an excellent job for us.

A discussion followed about soliciting and interviewing for a new prosecuting attorney for the city. City Attorney Fred Suhler made it clear that he represented the city only in civil matters and was a public defender; therefore, he was not interested in being the prosecuting attorney.
