Repairs and new tires for the city plow truck were approved. Septic pumping is done.

Flattum requested the approval of the Records Retention Schedule Resolution. This would allow Flattum go through old records and discard what is obsolete. Motion by Wangen, seconded by Gudmundson, to pass the resolution. The council approved the resolution.

There will be a Fillmore County Economic Development Summit Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014 in Preston, Minn. Flattum recommended any council members who could attend to do so.

Owner of the Bent Wrench, Elliot Riggott, attended the meeting to learn more of a proposed craft brewery, which would be located in Fountain.
