Lanesboro to put decals on windows of abandoned buildings


Fri, Apr 11th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Government

By Jade Sexton

The Lanesboro EDA (Economic Development Authority) would like to place some historic decals in the windows of empty buildings in the downtown area. The window decals would help to improve the look of the buildings and the downtown, helping them not look so vacant. This would be done with the approval of the property owners.

The decals will be purchased from Kelly Printing in Preston. They can cover two windows for $800, which will be paid by the EDA with money coming from the Chamber and Public Utilities.

“I would like to see the property owners pay for part of it,” said Mayor Steve Rahn. “We’re making their property look better.”

Councilor Tom Smith noted the property owners are contributing to the chamber with dues.

Jason Resseman said he has seen the decals and they are very nicely done and look great. The council approved.

Well project

There has been a 6-week delay in the start of the well project due to frost melting and muddy roads. Todd said they are still planning on being done by the end of June.

There is a barn on the site that needs to be removed, and Todd said Phil Holtergaard is interested in taking the barn down and using the wood. This would save the city the expense of removing it themselves.

It was approved to allow Holtergaard to remove the tree. He can work up until the time the contractor needs access to the area, at which point the contractor will remove whatever remains.

Parking Spaces

Phil Dybing asked the council to put up a 30-minute parking sign in front of the corner grocery store. There is already a sign right on the corner, but the council agreed to put up another so there are two spots.

Councilor Tom Smith asked about enforcing the parking time limit. Mayor Rahn said it’s more of a common courtesy, and you would hope that people would respect it. Todd added the cost of the sign is very inexpensive.

Brush dump

Dybing also spoke to the council about the brush dump, and some concerns he has. “I understand the value of it, and that it needs to be taken care of once in a while,” he said. His concern was the location, as it is close to downtown Lanesboro and when it must be burned, there is a lot of smoke.

Mayor Rahn said they have been brainstorming different locations for a long time, but there aren .....
