While the area was under a blizzard warning on January 8, 2015 the weather did not stop the Fountain City Council from completing the tasks at hand during their monthly meeting.

Mayor Richard Kujath and council members Bryan Ostby and Jim Schott took their Oath of Offices as the first order of business.

Michelle Redalen, with Drury’s Furniture, attended the meeting to inquire about the progress of the city’s snow removal problem. Parking is once again a concern as there are vehicles violating a city ordinance which states no vehicles should be parked on city streets from 3 a.m. - 7 a.m. from November 1 through April 1 and should not be left unattended.

Vehicles are parked on the street when the snowplow comes through to clear the streets early in the morning and are in the way. The majority of these vehicles belong to people who ride one of the four buses that stop in Fountain to pick up Mayo Clinic employees going to work in Rochester, Minn.

City Clerk Ronda Flattum will contact Rochester City Lines to request that bus drivers announce on each bus that there is no parking on streets during the restricted time. The city will start to enforce the parking ordinance and will be ticketing vehicles not in compliance with the ordinance. The amount of the citation is $25.

All business and residential sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours following snowfall or it will be done by the city at a charge of $125 per hour.

Motion by Schott, seconded by Wangen, to approve the consent agenda items, including the minutes from the December 8, 2014 meeting, treasurer’s report, monthly city bills and monthly fire department bills.

Smith & Schafer will perform an audit on January 27, 28, and 29, 2014. The December 2014 police report will be given at the February 2015 meeting.

Approved 2015 tobacco license for Herman’s Standard. Local Board of Appeal & Equalization meeting will be held April 27 - 30, 2015 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Approved the 2015 fee schedule with no changes in fees.

Designations for 2015 were approved as follows: official bank - First State Bank of Fountain, official newspaper - Fillmore County Journal, City Attorney - Scott Springer, insurance agent - Alton Erickson, City Engineer - WSB (formerly McGhie & Betts), City Auditor - Smith & Schafer.

Mayor appointments for 2015 include: weed in .....
