Fountain council hears from new wireless provider

Joe Glende with HBC of Winona, Minn. discusses wireless internet service the company is bringing to Fountain, Minn. with the Fountain City Council. By Barb Jeffers

The Fountain City Council met on April 2, 2015 where the first order of business was being introduced to Joe Glende with HBC of Winona, Minn. HBC is bringing their wireless internet service to town to start with and if there is an interest they could also offer landline phone service.

Glende assured the council that their service is “a lot more reliable” than service residents have received in the past from another company. The tower HBC uses has a UPS on it so if power goes out service will not be lost. He also feels their pricing is competitive with several packages available.

Motion by Gudmundson, seconded by Ostby to approve consent agenda items including Minutes from the March 5, 2015 regular meeting, Treasurer’s report, and monthly city bills/fire dept. bills. Motion carried.

City Clerk Ronda Flattum reminded the council of the Safety & Loss Workshops on April 14, 2015 at Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minn. which Flattum and city maintenance foreman John Hanson will attend. The 2015 SEMLM (Southern Minnesota League of Municipalities) Conference will be held April 29, 2015.

A Root River Trail Towns committee to represent and support the City of Fountain has been established which includes Ronda Flattum, Terri Allen, Barb Jeffers, and Julie Gade.

The next Trail Days meeting will be held Thursday, April 9, 2015 at the Community Center.

An issue with a resident’s utility bill was discussed as the resident requested their water turned off for one month while out of town and did not feel there should be a balance due. The council determined that as the water was shut off between billing cycles there was a balance due.

A second resident requested a separate water meter for water used to water a garden. Request denied.

Approved a $1000 donation to Trail Days 2015.

Fountain Police Chief Tom Mosher reported on activity in March 2015. March 3 - attended four hours of crime scene/ death scene investigation training in Rushford, Minn.
