Fountain City Council to consult attorney


Mon, Aug 17th, 2015
Posted in Fountain Government

The Fountain City Council had a full room as they met on August 6, 2015 for their regularly scheduled meeting. Council members present were Chad Wangen, Dave Gudmundson, and Mayor Richard Kujath, along with City Clerk Ronda Flattum and Fountain Police Chief Tom Mosher. Council members absent were Jim Schott and Bryan Ostby, as well as city maintenance worker John Hanson.

First on the agenda was Tom Tienter of Chatfield, Minn. who requested the city extend Elm Street by 50 feet as is shown in the plat book and lay gravel for access to property he recently purchased in order to build a personal storage shed.

Several residents who live on Elm Street attended the meeting to oppose the road opening. The additional two property owners whose land abuts the portion of Elm Street in question, Brian and Barb Jeffers and Donna Ulwelling, presented the council with a petition to vacate that portion of Elm Street, stating that Tienter has other access to the land he recently purchased and stated that the end of Elm Street has been a cul-de-sac for many years, while the end of the old road, that reached the boundary of the old railroad right of way, has grown over with grass and had been maintained by them for over 20 years.

Tienter stated that “the city is obligated to finish out that street to the property”, saying it’s a “designated road” and “it needs to be finished to the property line” in order for him to create a driveway. The residents of Elm Street contend that when they purchased their homes the road ended in a cul-de-sac and they feel the road is not suitable for construction equipment and heavy traffic and also have other concerns.

Barb Jeffers stated “in that case, all old roads in Fountain need to be re-opened”, to which Mayor Kujath replied “if people request that” saying “there are a lot of alleys in this town that nobody even knows about because over the years they have never been used” and added that the city has had to lay rock in an alley for someone to get their horse trailer backed up.

The council tabled the matter until an attorney is consulted, as city attorney for Fountain, Scott Springer, was Tienter’s attorney to close on his recently purchased land, it may be a conflict of interest, and if so, another attorney will be contacted. The matter will be discussed further at the September meeting to be held September 10, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.
