The Harmony City Council met on December 8, 2015 at 7 pm. All council members were present.

The consent agenda was approved and included the claims, sheriff’s report, financial report, and an application for a kennel license from The Dog Pad.

City Administrator Jerome Illg updated the council on the wastewater plant project. The clarifier dome was supposed to have arrived by now, but was delayed. The dechlorinization manholes have been ordered and will be installed soon.

Council member Eileen Schansberg and Illg will be selecting the colors for the pump house. So far, the footings and foundation blocks have been completed.

The city is in the process of gathering estimates to update the pump and sprayer in the firehouse that are used for cleaning the emergency vehicles. It isn’t working right and needs to be replaced. The firehouse will also need a bigger water heater and a water softener.

City maintenance worker Chris Johnson noted that there have been three water leaks in the water main within the last week. Each one was the homeowner’s responsibility to repair.

Council member Debbie Swenson gave the Harmony Area Chamber of Commerce report. The Chamber hosted its annual Holiday Fest, with approximately 300 people attending.

The council approved the appointing of Michelle Donlan and Joanne Burmeister as library board members to replace Pam Hoppe and Judy Webster.

Harmony Library Director Stephanie Silvers put together a 2016 calendar to be sold for $10 apiece, which will help fund the Centennial celebration. The calendar gives snippets of history about the library and the City of Harmony. Council member Lynn Mensink passed around a copy of the calendar for the council to review and mentioned that she thought Silvers did a great job.

The Arts Board was able to book the Nordic Fiddlers in early 2016. The group will also hold a class at the Fillmore Central school for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.

The council reviewed the revised liquor ordinance. Currently, the ordinance states that applicants will not be granted a license if they have unpaid taxes, assessments, utility charges, or other obligations to the city or the Harmony EDA. Mayor Steve Donney said that he preferred to remove that from the ordinance. “If someone is working with the EDA to pay their loan, we should still grant the liquor license. .....
