Fountain City Council locks brush dump

Posted in Fountain Government

Due to misuse, the city council of Fountain, Minn. has decided to lock the entrance to the town’s brush dump.

During last week’s council meeting, which had been re-scheduled from August 7 to August 13, 2014, city maintenance worker John Hanson informed the council that several types of wood had been placed in the brush dump.

The brush dump will now be locked with the key to be picked up and signed out at the city office during regular business hours and the load will be inspected either before the key is given out or the brush dump will be checked after the key is returned.

Other action taken by the council included the approval of Consent Agenda Items and approval to accept a bid from Rochester Sand & Gravel in the amount of $44,202.41 for work to be done on Pine Street and Third Street.

Hanson updated the council on efforts to receive bids for a snow blower to be mounted on the back of the tractor, a playground slide to replace the current one in the city park which is cracked, and a lawnmower.

A resident’s request to have gravel placed in their driveway was discussed. The city will place gravel on the right of way at no expense to the homeowner. The homeowner may pay for gravel and have Hanson spread the gravel on the resident’s driveway but the homeowner would have to pay an hourly rate.

AT&T has been informed the company will need to do a presentation at the September 4, 2014 council meeting to show how a dish would be mounted to the water tower. If a representative does not attend the September meeting, they will have to wait until the October meeting.

There was no report from Police Chief Mosher as he was unable to attend the meeting.

The council approved to have biosolids taken to the city of Stewartville, who will accept the biosolids at no charge. However, there will be a cost of approximately 2 cents per gallon for hauling out of their facility.

Minor improvements scheduled to be done at the WWTP have yet to be accomplished. City Clerk Ronda Flattum will call McGhie & Betts, Inc. to request a replacement for Dave Morrill when Morrill is on vacation. If unable to do so the city may begin looking for a different engineering group.

Motion by Jim Schott, seconded by Chad Wangen, to purchase lot #16 on the North side of the Cambern building (formerly Willie’s Grocery and Locker) for the asking p .....
