Fountain resident Jason Sethre attended the July city council meeting held on July 3, 2014 to request assistance in dealing with an ongoing sinkhole problem on his property. According to Sethre this is the third sinkhole that has developed on the property.

Sethre explained the first two seem to have been managed but the current sinkhole continually re-develops despite his best attempts to fill it in and is a danger to the public. The city will dig an approximate six foot wide path to investigate how deep the sinkhole is and will attempt to fill it in with coarse rock.

Consent agenda items approved included minutes from the June 5, 2014 regular meeting, Treasurer’s report, and monthly city and fire department bills.

John Hanson, City Maintenance employee, discussed the method of notifying residents of hydrant flushing. An ad will be placed in the Fillmore County Journal notifying residents prior to hydrants being flushed.

Hanson notified the council that there are items at the brush dump that are not supposed to be there including particle board. Hanson will inform Police Chief Mosher to investigate. If the activity continues the brush dump may be kept locked once again with residents needing a key to enter the brush dump.

The water tower was cleaned the day of the meeting and has some surface rust. The water tower has never been painted and the council will discuss whether to put painting in the budget at the August meeting.

One additional bid for blacktopping Third Street and Pine Street has been received. Hanson will inform the council when all bids have been received.

City Clerk Ronda Flattum reported that she and Jim Schott attended the Preston Ambulance Appreciation on June 18, 2014. Flattum noted that in 2013 Preston Emergency Services members volunteered 21,646 hours.

The dates for residents to file for Mayor of Fountain and two council positions are July 29 -August 12, 2014. The fee to file is $2.

Chief Mosher was unable to attend the meeting but filed a report. June 5 - Report of two young boys riding go-cart on neighbor’s property. Spoke with boys and mother. Problem solved. June 6 - Report of items missing from an empty apartment. Report filed for insurance purposes.

June 7 - Trail Days went well. June 15 - Report of a child custody dispute. Issue resolved for now. June 17 - Report of three lig .....
