The Fountain City Council met on Thursday, August 1, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in the City Hall Meeting Room. Council members present were Jim Schott, Chad Wangen, Chris Ostby, and Mayor Richard Kujath. Absent was Dave Gudmundson. Also present were City Clerk Ronda Flattum and Police Chief Tom Mosher.

The first order of business was approving the consent agenda items which included approving minutes of the July 2, 2013 meeting, the Treasurer’s Report, monthly city bills, monthly Fire Department bills, and a payment to MPFA in the amount of $54,045.47.

In the city maintenance report it was established that North Star Pump Services has completed its job order at the north lift station.

Dave Gartner with McGhie and Betts, Inc. reported that there continues to be a problem with Nitrogen. Attempts to solve the issue will continue through the winter months to possibly find a solution. The computer had some viruses that were taken care of. There is currently no agreement with Valley Design as it has expired.

The city clerk report included a discussion on the Small City Grant Fund. A resident is requesting $12,575, plus small administrative costs, through the Small City Grant Fund for a fix-up on their home. There is currently $14,713 in the City of Fountain’s Small City Grant Fund. The council approved the request.

Police Chief Tom Mosher reported the squad car had the windshield replaced on July 2 after receiving a rock chip. Officer Mosher reported he assisted an individual who owns apartments buildings with a civil issue.

On July 8, 2013 Chief Mosher conducted three interviews on the vandalism that has occurred in the city parks recently. He met with three youths with their parents present. The vandalism has included a broken board and canvas on equipment, broken branches on trees, paint and feces in the city park restrooms, and broken plexi-glass on equipment. Two older girls admitted to climbing trees but stated they did not break the branches.

The kids stated that there had been some small tears in the canvas on the play equipment and evidently some kids had been playing a game and one child climbed out onto the tarp causing the tears to give way and the child fell through the canvas. None of the children admitted to being the child who fell through the canvas however. Police Chief Mosher feels the vandalism has stopped.
