The Fountain City Council met on December 3, 2015. Council members Dave Gudmundson, Jim Schott, and Bryan Ostby were present. Council member Chad Wangen was absent. Also in attendance were Mayor Richard Kujath, City Clerk Ronda Flattum and Police Chief Tom Mosher.

Shawn Mulhern with KLM Engineering, Inc. of Lake Elmo, Minn., attended the meeting to offer the company’s services in regards to possible future maintenance on the water tower such as inspection, repairs, pressure washing and painting.

Motion by Gudmundson, seconded by Schott, to approve the consent agenda items, which included minutes from the Nov. 5, 2015 meeting, treasurer’s report, monthly city/fire dept. bills and the annual payroll for the fire department.

Chief Mosher gave his November 2015 activity report. Nov. 16 - placed snow parking ordinance notices on five vehicles. Nov. 23 - attended adverse weather night training. Nov. 25- report of possible dog poisoning - the dog is fine now.

No further noise complaints have been received following several complaints by residents on second street in November. A post audit was conducted on Dec. 2, 2015 with excellent results.

Maintenance worker John Hanson will be unavailable due to fire deptartment training several weekend days in January. Council members will cover snowplowing if necessary.

Councilmember Gudmundson reported the need for a stop sign at the end of the newly re-opened alley behind his residence, as it is being used by vehicles as well as pedestrians, including children on bikes.

It was determined that with several new alleys in town it would be best for every alley to have a stop sign for safety reasons. Several stop signs and posts will be purchased and installed.

Smith Schafer & Associates will perform a preliminary audit on Dec. 30, 2015.

Motion by Schott, seconded by Gudmundson, to purchase a refrigeration sled that needs to be replaced at the WWTP, in the amount of $1,185.86 plus tax. Motion carried.

Motion by Schott, seconded by Gudmundson, to sign an engagement letter with Smith Schafer & Associates to perform audits for the City of Fountain in 2016, which includes a $45 increase from last year. Motion carried.

The council received a quote from Maguire Iron for interior and exterior painting of the water tower. The quote will be filed for future reference as the .....
