Lanesboro discusses parking at Church Hill


Fri, Mar 7th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Government

Church Hill Condominiums developer Dan Anderson approached the Lanesboro City Council about a parking issue that has been in question for some time now. He stated the property line goes right down the middle of the parking lot. Right now, people who attend Bethlehem Lutheran Church use the parking lot on Sundays and during church events.

Anderson spoke about working out a joint maintenance agreement with the city for the parking lot. He had previously met with Bobbie Vickerman when she was administrator and said that she recommended the city take over the lot. Anderson said he is open to any ideas.

City Attorney Tom Manion said the debate is the parking lot is private property, so should the city get involved and have to pay maintenance costs?

City Administrator David Todd expressed some confusion about why the city would have to take over. He recommended the parking spaces be moved so they are on Anderson’s property. He added it should have been developed so that the spaces were completely on his property. He also felt that it would be confusing and “muddy the waters” to get into joint agreement with the city.

Theresa Coleman from the Public Utilities Commission reminded the council the city ordinance requires Anderson provide two off-street parking spaces for each unit. Council member and acting Mayor Tom Dybing agreed moving the spaces might be the best solution, so he is in compliance with the ordinance.

Anderson said he will look into his options and get more information.

Well Project Bids

Theresa Coleman recommended the council accept a bid from Mark J. Traut Wells, Inc. for work on the well project. She explained they only received two bids, which was fewer than they had hoped. One of the reasons was the depth of the well, which is 1,000 feet. Not everyone has the right equipment for that depth.

Todd said the state has mandated a time table for the project, and it must be completed by the middle of 2015. Also, companies in Wisconsin and Iowa have had troubles with permits for blasting in Minnesota, and the project will require some blasting.

Coleman said it was not recommended to try for more bids, because they could have trouble getting any bids at all. The council accepted the bid.
