Lanesboro celebrates EMS week


Mon, May 9th, 2016
Posted in Lanesboro Government

The Lanesboro City Council met for their regular meeting on May 2, at 5:30 p.m. All council members were present. The consent agenda was approved and included the minutes of the last meeting, accounts payable, and the fire lane ordinance.

Police Chief Matt Schulz informed the council that the police department will be filing tickets electronically instead of hand-writing them. He and City Administrator Michele Peterson are working on numbering the city ordinances so tickets for them can also be filed electronically. He anticipates that they will all be ready to go by June.

City Works Director Andy Drake asked the council to approve a proposal and bid to finish the outside of the city shed. The proposal was passed.

Councilman Jason Resseman informed the council that Gerry Evenson resigned from the Public Works Commission on April 27. It was decided that councilman Tom Dybing will fill Evenson’s seat until his term is up at the end of 2016, at which time a new commissioner will be elected. Resseman will continue to be a council liaison for the Public Works Commission.

The EDA updated their ordinance concerning the number of people on their board. The board will now consist of seven members, two of whom will be city council members as required by state statutes. Councilman Tom Smith and Mayor Robin Krom will serve on the EDA board to fill the requirement.

The EDA has been discussing where to set salaries for each of its board members. The state requires them to do so, but as the money for the salaries comes out of the EDA budget, they would like to keep them low. The council voted to approve an annual salary of $15 for each member of the EDA board.

The mission statement for the EDA is currently quite complicated and long. The EDA board is currently working streamlining the statement for clarification.

Deane Benson from the ambulance crew informed the council that EMS week is May 15-21. In honor of that, the crew is planning an event outside of the firehall on May 21 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.. It will include demonstrations by the fire/rescue crew, helmet fittings and bike safety checks by Fillmore County Public Health, on-the-spot water testing, free food, and more. He asked the council to allow the section of Coffee Street by the firehall to be blocked off for the event. The council approved the street closure.
