Tim Samuelson, Administrator at Harmony Healthcare, approached the City Council at their regular meeting on April 8. He explained that he has had a dream for many years to be able to purchase a new power generator, as the current one is old and needs replacing, but they have not had the funds to do so. A new generator will cost $75,250. Recently, they received a donation from Murrell and Joyce Jacobson in the amount of $50,000 to go toward the purchase, so since then he has been trying to raise the rest of the money.

He asked the city to donate $4,000 toward to new generator. He explained the new generator will enable the nursing home to continue to offer food, lights, power, heating, and air condition in the event of an emergency. They would also be able to hold more people from town, such as the residents at Heritage Grove or the other senior apartments in town.

There was a question about other generators in town. The fire hall has a generator, as does the wastewater treatment plant, the bank, and the telephone office.

Gerald Shuck made a motion to donate $10,000 from the electric fund. The motion passed.

Audit Report

Jason Boynton of Smith Schafer and Associates presented the council with the 2012 audit report. He went over the fund balances, revenues and expenditures for each fund, and gave a good report for Harmony, seeing nothing to be concerned about.

The fire fund has a negative balance due to the purchase of a new fire truck, but the city already has plans and is working on building that balance back up.

Local government aid (LGA) has remained the same since 2010. The general tax levy has made up 37 percent of total revenues.

The general fund balance of $600,000. The unreserved general fund balance is 90 percent of expenditures, which is a good percentage to have.

There is currently $497,241 in the Capital Projects fund. City Administrator Jerome Illg pointed out that the reason it is so high is because these numbers are as of December 31, 2012, and some of the money has been or will be spent on seal .....
