Posted in Lanesboro Government

The Lanesboro City Council met on January 4 at 5:30 p.m. for their regular meeting. Council member Tom Dybing was absent.

Resolutions were passed designating an official depository and newspaper for the city, as well as the fire department officers.

The Lanesboro Public Library is continuing to excel in their monthly circulation numbers. The library accepted a donation from The Friends of the Library in the amount of $3150. The time of the library board meetings was changed from 5 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The meetings will continue to be held on the third Wednesday of each month.

The Lanesboro Ambulance Department reported 88 calls in 2015. The service is currently looking into switching from paper to electronic run sheets, which would help with billing and insurance.

Dennis Schuck will not be returning to the Public Utilities Commission in 2016. Three applicants responded to the posting of the opening. Theresa Coleman noted that she expects there will be another slot open on the commission in about a year.

Lanesboro Public Utilities has begun the process of looking into options to purchase properties for the future wastewater treatment plant.

Council member Jason Resseman noted that Curt Bisek of 2 Rivers Brewery attended the latest Planning and Zoning meeting to discuss the expansion. Planning and Zoning is willing to work with the company to help the expansion go smoothly.

The Lanesboro Visitor’s Guide for 2016 has been printed and is available. The next Chamber of Commerce meeting will be held on January 20, at 7 p.m., at the Methodist Church.

The Lanesboro Fire Department is looking into options for replacing their 1992 fire truck. The selling price for the current truck is estimated to be around $150,000. They would like to purchase a used truck from the Chatfield Fire Department. It was brought to Lanesboro to make sure it would fit in the fire hall, as the new standard trucks do not. The department has money set aside and stipulated for purchasing a new truck and after much research, it was determined that the truck from Chatfield was the best deal. The council approved a motion to make a commitment to purchase the fire truck from Chatfield.

The council congratulated Andy Drake on his 25 years with the city of Lanesboro, working with the street department. His hard work and dedication were acknowledged with gratitude. .....
