Harmony appoints new council member


Mon, May 19th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Government

After Jim Bakken announced he would be leaving the Harmony City Council at the end of May, the search for a new council member began. Four people applied to finish the seven-month term: Clifford Johannessen, Kyle Morem, Jill Fishbaugher, and Steve Sagen.

At the meeting on May 13, Debbie Swenson made a motion to appoint Kyle Morem. “He’s young, he has kids,” she said. “We need that point of view.”

The motion was passed to appoint Kyle Morem.

The council expressed their thanks to Bakken for his time. Bakken read his letter of resignation to the council, saying that he regrets not being able to finish his term. He and his family had an opportunity to move to Preston. “It has been an honor,” he said.

Audit Proposals

City Administrator Jerome Illg said he received proposals for the audit, and he recommended they go with Smith Schafer. Their original proposal for a three-year contract was $17,000 for 2014, $17,500 for 2015, and $18,000 for 2016. Abdo, Eick, and Meyers sent in a proposal for $16,255 for 2014, $16,605 for 2015, and $17,230 for 2016. Hawkins Ash proposed a set rate of $17,000 for three years.

According to Illg, Smith Schafer stated they would match the low bid from Abdo, Eick, and Meyers. Due to the established relationship and their proximity to the area, he felt they should accept it.

Councilor Jerry Shuck asked Illg if the others knew Smith Schafer had changed their bid. Illg said he did not contact them. “If you give one the opportunity, you should give it to the others,” said Shuck. He added he felt uncomfortable not letting the others know.

Swenson agreed, and felt Illg should contact the others.

Illg asked where he should stop if the others decide to change their bids as well. Shuck said they should at least see if the others are willing to change.

Swenson suggested they take Smith Schafer off the list and just go with the low bid from Abdo, Eick, and Meyers, saying it would be good to have someone new.

Mayor Steve Donney said he could see how the continuity would make things easier, and felt Illg should ask the others if they would like to resubmit a proposal and end it there.

A motion was made to go with Abdo, Eick, and Meyers. Mayor Donney opposed, but the motion passed.
