Mon, Sep 15th, 2014
Posted in Fountain All

Approving the budget was one of many items on the agenda as the Fountain City Council met Thursday, September 4, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at the city hall in Fountain, Minn.

The meeting began one hour earlier than usual in order to complete a WebEx telephone conference with Antonio DiDonato with Velocitel, Inc. and Mark September with Alcatel-Lucent on behalf of AT&T in regards to longstanding concerns over how the company will mount the proposed microwave dish to the city water tower.

The microwave dish will be chain mounted to the side of the stem of the water tank. Six additional antenna’s will be added to the six already in place. City Engineer Dave Morrill will inspect the final paperwork and was approved to send the Notice To Proceed.

Consent agenda items were approved including minutes from the August 2014 meeting, Treasurer’s report, monthly city bills, and monthly Fire Department bills.

City maintenance employee John Hanson was unable to attend the meeting but provided quotes for road work and city equipment. The discussion was tabled until all quotes are received. Hanson completed a Retro Reflectivity webinar in July which provided education on federal and state requirements for city signs. Six new stop signs will be installed to begin a schedule of replacement for all city signs.

Police Chief Mosher updated the council on activity during July and August. Chief Mosher completed two webinars in July including Retro Reflectivity and the Safe Harbor Law webinars.

August 11 - Responded to accident on main street when a pickup pulling a farm disc hit a vehicle. August 19 - Responded to a verbal argument. August 20 - Spoke to unwanted customer at a local business. August 23 - Participated in an event at the Fillmore County Historical Center. August 26 - Responded to a female who tipped over on her bike.

Chief Mosher discussed the City of Fountain purchasing Law Enforcement Technology Group (LETG) software and a laptop computer in order to be linked with other law enforcement agencies in the state. The city could purchase the items independently at a cost of approximately $6,000 or possibly share the cost with the City of Ostrander as Ostrander will be providing the items to Officer Mosher for use there. The city council tabled the discussion and will look into purchasing the requested items in 2015.
