Mabel City Council discusses renovating ball field

Mon, Oct 13th, 2014
Posted in Mabel Government

The Mabel City Council met on October 8, 2014 at 7 pm. City Council member Kirsten Wyffels was absent.

Sean Welty from Davy Engineering was present at the meeting to update the council. Jech Excavating has encountered several problems with the subgrade dirt which led to some delays, but the project is still moving along. A time extension has been requested for the standpipe portion of the project. There were some delays due to supplies needed for the project which were not delivered on time. Welty recommended granting the time extension, and the council approved it. Welty will be attending a meeting next week to update the construction schedule and will share the new schedule with the city council at the November meeting.

The minutes from the August 13, 2014 meeting were reviewed by the council members and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

City clerk Karen Larson updated the council on the Minnesota Twins Fields for Kids grant. She has been staying in contact with the Minnesota Twins Community Fund staff to ensure that the extra time needed for the project to renovate the ball field is acceptable. Larson informed the council that the dugouts are completed and look fantastic. They still need benches, but should have them soon. The city received a plaque from the Minnesota Twins to hang at the ball field. Public works director Robert Miereau will install the plaque in the near future.

The judges for the upcoming elections have been selected and a resolution for the judges was passed. Nathan Manning will be the head judge. The other judges will be Linda Kowalsky, Dee Ann Erickson, Donna Johnson, and Lavonne Mengis. Joan Manning will be the alternate.

The city received conveyance of forfeited lands for the property at 321 Locust Street North. There currently is a trailer home on the property which is not habitable and needs to be moved. Miereau will look into different options for removal and present them to the council at a later meeting. There is also a tree with several dead limbs on the property which will need to be cut down. The specifications for this will also be decided at a later date.

Larson presented the 2015 city employees contract to the council to review. The only changes to the contract are a 2.5% cost of living adjustment and some minor wording changes. The council approved the contract for the year of 20 .....
