Harmony Council approves 2015 audit

Posted in Harmony Government

The Harmony City Council met for their regular meeting on April 12 at 7 p.m.

Assessor Brian Hoff presented the annual report for the Board of Review hearing to discuss property valuations in the area.

The consent agenda was approved. It included the claims, financial report, sheriff’s report, and minutes of the last meeting.

Keith McIntosh and Eric Slindee from the Harmony Conservation Club were present at the meeting. They said that the High School Trap League is going well with about 18 students signed up for it this year. That is almost double the number of students that participated last year. The club applied for a matching grant for $20,000 to update the shooting lanes from wood to concrete, reseed the area around the lanes, and purchase a handicapped port-a-john.

The club also asked the council to approve a noise permit application for their July 4th beer gardens for the dates of July 2 through midnight on the 4th. The council suggested extending the permit through the 5th of July as well, in case things aren’t completely wrapped up by midnight. The club agreed to the change, and the application was approved. A liquor license for the dates of July 2-4 was also approved.

Tom Olinger from Abdo, Eick & Meyers presented the 2015 Audit. There were no Minnesota Legal Compliance findings and no disagreements or difficulties. Due to the limited number of staff for the city, there was a finding regarding the segregation of duties, but Olinger said that was to be expected with a small town. The 2015 general fund expenditures stayed fairly level with 2014. The audit was approved by the council.

Engineer Brett Grabau updated the council on the well project. The city received an extension request from the contractor, but per Grabau’s recommendation, the request was tabled. They also reviewed two quotes for self-priming grit pumps to replace the current non-functioning pump and accepted the lower of the two. A bid for heat trace tape for the wastewater treatment plant’s primary clarifier dome doorway was also accepted. During a cold snap this last winter, the door froze shut due to the condensation in the building. The heat tape will prevent that from occurring again.

Maintenance Director Chris Johnson informed the council that he had ordered 25 tons of salt from the state bid.

Council member Debbie Swenson gave the EDA report. The EDA so .....
