Fountain City Council met on Thursday, May 2, 2013 during a record-breaking snowfall in the area. All council members were present in addition to Ronda Flattum, City Clerk, and Police Chief Tom Mosher.

The first order of business was to discuss the city’s insurance coverage with Alton Erickson from Krage Insurance of Lanesboro, Minn. The conversation pertained to the city’s coverage in general as well as for certain events, including Trail Days. The city council and Alton Erickson are satisfied with the coverage the city currently carries.

Dave Gartner of PeopleService was on hand to discuss the wastewater treatment plant. There is too much nitrogen in individual septic tanks at times and the problem has been a hard one to solve. Work will be ongoing to find a solution.

Consent agenda items were approved including the minutes from the April 4, 2013 meeting, Treasurer’s report, monthly city bills, and monthly Fire Department bills. Also approved were the purchases of tires for the grass truck and $800 for Riverland training, which may be reimbursed.

The council discussed bids received for asphalt work and concrete work. The decision was made to obtain more information on the bids and estimate one more inch of asphalt to be added which the council feels is necessary. Concrete bids will be discussed at the June meeting.

Flattum reported to the council on the Safety and Loss Control workshop she attended and also the League of Municipalities workshop. Flattum felt both of these meetings were useful. Flattum and Gartner both attended the MNWARN meeting on April 18 and found it very informative. Flattum suggested the City of Fountain become a member of MNWARN. The Fountain Fire Department is already a member. The council approved becoming a member of MNWARN.

Police Chief Tom Mosher reported that on April 16, 2013 letters were sent out on the city’s junk ordinance. On April 8 Officer Mosher investigated a theft by check case. On April 23 there was a black lab running loose, and on April 24 Officer Mosher dealt with a situation involving a business owner who had fired an employee.

Police Chief Mosher additionally reported on the Active Shooter Training which took place on April 8 answering the question of residents as to why the streets of Fountain had been lined with police vehicles on that day. The meeting took place at the community center. There were s .....
