Lanesboro City Council has joint meeting with EDA

Posted in Lanesboro Government

The Lanesboro City Council held a joint meeting with the Lanesboro Economic Development Authority (EDA) on July 18, 2012, to discuss the Lanesboro 20/20 plan. They also held a special meeting to discuss storm sewer and sewer line repairs. Hal Cropp of the EDA led the joint meeting, and said they were very pleased to meet with the city and discuss the 20/20 plan, as well as the Community Sustainment Initiative. He asked if anyone had any comments or observations about the 20/20 plan. Council member Ceil Allen said it was a good document, and she was very happy that it was put together, as it was a lot of work for the committee. “The real issue is how do we get to what the plan is?” Mayor Steve Rahn said that some of the things in the plan are wishes that may or may not ever take effect, but are something to hope for, such as a development company coming in to build houses. Allen said there are things that the city can do, and that the Chamber is already doing, to help bring people to Lanesboro. Julie Kiehne from the Chamber of Commerce said the new website has an area under the community tab called Business Opportunities, and there is a list of businesses and buildings that are available to rent or buy. They could expand it to include more details. Keith Baker of the EDA commented on the effort that the Chamber put forth to market Lanesboro as a cool place to live and do business, and that a lot of things they do are in the 20/20 plan. “If people move here, a lot of those things will follow,” he said. “I think what you’re doing is very exciting.” City Administrator Bobbie Vickerman noted that the school is a major factor in community sustainment, as are other facets of the city. “I think we should find out how we can get everyone to work together to move forward. What needs to be done? Maybe we should reach out to these different entities.” “That’s definitely a worthwhile goal,” said Cropp. There was some discussion about encouraging families to move to Lanesboro. Vickerman said 42 out of the 387 homes in Lanesboro are second homes for people, a number that has grown in the last few years. Vickerman also stated that the Lanesboro 20/20, the Chamber Strategic Plan, and the Community Sustainment Initiative all have the same goal of moving Lanesboro forward. After a brief EDA meeting, the City Council held a special meeting. Dillon Dombrovski, engineer from Yaggy Colby and Associates, was there to discuss sewer line replacement options for the city. There have been many issues with the sewer under the levy, including a leak recently, and the line was televised. According to Dombrovski, they had trouble getting through, and the pipes are in bad condition. The price to repair the line with open cutting and replace is with 12-inch PVC plastic pipe is going to be $86,201, which was the low bid from Blitz Construction. Vickerman said the Public Utilities Commission would be paying for the repairs out of their Capital Improvement fund. The reason it came before the council was to get it approved so work can be done on it as soon as possible. Dombrovski said they would be replacing 1,000 feet in pipe and four manholes. Mayor Rahn said they have tried to put off the work because of the cost, but it can’t be put off any longer. There is also storm sewer repair that needs to be done underneath the Riverside on the Root. Dombrovski said there are two catch basins on the southeast corner of that intersection, then it’s a straight shot under the building to the river. The pipe is made up of different types of metal, clay, and concrete, as it has been patched together over the years. Dombrovski said the metal parts are rusting. They sent out for quotes from pipelining companies, and the low bid was $41,607.81 from Municipal Pipe Tool Company LLC. Dombrovski explained that since it’s a small job, the rate per square foot is higher than if it were a larger job. They are only working on 300 feet of pipe. The other option would be to try to make an alternate route for the pipe, instead of under the restaurant. Dombrovski felt that would cost more than the estimate to fix it. Mike Charlebois, owner of Riverside on the Root, suggested an alternate route they could look into. Blitz could also do the work for that if the city chose to do that. The city authorized Dombrovski to check with a drainage engineer. They will also be checking with the state to see if they could help with the cost, since it is part of the state highway as well. .....
