The Fountain City Council made quick work of its agenda at the regularly scheduled meeting on July 2, 2015. All council members were present.

Motion by Schott, seconded by Wangen, to approve the Consent Agenda items. Motion passed. Consent Agenda items included Minutes from June 4, 2015 regular meeting, treasurer’s report, monthly city bills, and fire department bills.

City maintenance worker John Hanson will be taking vacation July 20 - 24. Lawn mowing needs to be done in his absence. The council will check for someone to do lawn mowing of the twelve and a half acres that needs to be maintained during Hanson’s absence.

A wet no-freeze valve plug needs to be replaced on the water tower. The cost will range from $6,800 - $7,300. Motion by Gudmundson, seconded by Ostby, to replace it. Motion carried.

Rochester City Lines bus driver Greg Hoff has contacted Ronda Flattum, City Clerk, to alert the council of possible noise on second street from buses and also normal wear and tear on the streets if buses are re-routed to pick up riders at the city parking lot. He stated he will re-route the commuter buses if the council approves. The council agreed to “give it a try” and approved the new bus route.

The Habitat 500 bicycle ride will come through Fountain on July 14, 2015 and will come through again on July 16. The group sent their planned route to the council for approval. The route is coming in on County Rd. 8, onto Cedar Street, then to County Rd. 11, and on to County Rd. 30. The council approved the route.

The Ronald McDonald Run will be in Fountain on Sunday, July 26, 2015. Main Street will be blocked off and the group is renting the community hall and serving food. Main Street will be filled with motorcycles.

Flattum will be taking PTO on Thursday, July 9, 2015.

Fountain Police Chief Tom Mosher was unable to attend the meeting and will give his activity report for June 2015 at the August 2015 meeting.

Flattum and Schott attended the Preston Ambulance Services summer picnic. The ambulance service is struggling to get additional volunteers.

The Hach Company installed the DO system at the WWTP on July 1, 2015. The system seems to be working well.
