The Harmony City Council met on January 12, 2016 at 7 p.m. Mayor Steve Donney was absent, and council member Debbie Swenson was acting mayor in his place.

The consent agenda was approved and included the claims, the minutes of the last meeting, and the sheriff’s report for the month of December.

The City of Harmony 2016 appointments were reviewed and approved with no changes from the previous year, except for two new library board members, Joanne Burmeister and Michelle Donlan, who replaced Lynn Mensink and Ruth Delano.

City Administrator Jerome Illg informed the council that the library did not receive the grant to assist with the costs of replacing the north library wall and windows. Illg has been communicating with Cresco Building Service about doing the repairs.

The clarifier dome and dechlorinization manholes have been installed. Building and Maintenance director Chris Johnson noted that there is some tinkering that needs to be done on the dome before it will be 100% finished. A fan also needs to be installed to minimize the condensation on the inside of the dome.

The footings and foundation blocks for the well house are complete. The city has received PFA reimbursement for financing well costs. The council approved pay request #3 for the well house.

Johnson informed the council that the contractor returned to perform more maintenance on the grit system, but discovered that the pump is irreparable. Johnson knows a repairman who said he can fix the pump, but questioned whether that was a good idea as the pump is already 23 years old and a dinosaur in the world of wastewater plant equipment. Quotes will be obtained to replace the pump and to repair it and compared.

The City of Harmony and the EDA sent a letter to Senator Jeremy Miller regarding the legislation he sponsored supporting a bike trail expansion from Harmony to the Iowa border. The Parks and Trails Council of Minnesota has recommended that the Legislature and Govenor include $1.5 million in the 2016 bonding bill for the Southeastern Minnesota Stateline Trail Extension project. The letter asked for Senator Miller’s support on such legislation.

The EDA’s regular monthly meeting included a discussion on finding a dentist to serve the residents of Harmony and surrounding areas.
