AED device to be placed at Harmony Golf Course


Mon, Sep 14th, 2015
Posted in Harmony Government

The Harmony City Council met on September 8, 2015 at 7 p.m. All council members were present.

The claims were reviewed and approved along with the minutes of the August 11 meeting. The vendor agreement with SEMCAC was approved.

The council received a letter from Dan Dornink with the Harmony Golf Course Board of Directors requesting that the golf course be considered as a location for the third AED the city received. Noting that nearly all of the golf course employees are CPR certified and trained in AED operation, Dornink also pointed out that the course is well attended by fire and ambulance personnel who could efficiently use the AED as well. The council approved a motion to place the AED at the Harmony Golf Course.

The ambulance rate was changed to a base rate of $650 with mileage set at $12 a mile. The change will be in effect as of 10/1/15.

A change order for the 1st Ave SW project was approved.

City Maintenance worker, Chris Johnson brought the issue of missing house numbers to the attention of the board. Many homes in Harmony do not have house numbers posted, although city ordinance states that homes must have numbers that are visible from the street. Deputy Clerk Eileen Schansberg pointed out that it is also a safety issue as the ambulance crew may not be able to locate a home during an emergency if a house number cannot be seen. City Administrator Jerome Illg will put out public notifications reminding Harmony residents of the ordinance.

A suitable location had been found for the manholes for dechlorination purposes, but the landowner was not amenable to having them placed on his land. Johnson scouted a new location on a minimum maintenance road and will have them put in there.

Council member Debbie Swenson gave the EDA board report. The 2016 budget will remain the same as the 2015. A career fair will be held on November 13 at the high school.

Illg is working to get in contact with designers for a possible natural park to be built near the Community Center.

Lynn Mensink reported that the leak in the library has been located, thanks to city maintenance workers. It was determined that water is coming in through the window which needs to be replaced. She requested that the window be replaced with a window of equal size to allow for natural light in the library.

Library board member Vicki Christians .....
