The Mabel City Council met on June 11, 2014 at 7 p.m. All council members were present.

The city had accepted sealed bids for the 2004 Chevy Impala police car that is no longer being used by the police department. The bids were opened at the council meeting. A bid from Steve Michael in the amount of $1,260 was accepted.

The minutes from the June 11, 2014 meeting were reviewed and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

City Clerk Karen Larson presented the Fire Relief 2014 SC-14 Form Approval to the council. She noted that there currently is not a deficit and no levy will be needed. The form was approved.

The council passed a motion to increase the Fire Relief Pension from $600 to $650 as there was no increase last year and funds are currently available.

The primary election will be held August 12 from 7-8 p.m. 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.

Spring Grove city council member, Lorilyn Dehning, arranged for a bus to pick up children in Mabel throughout the summer to take them to the Spring Grove swimming pool. The bus is sponsored by Poet Biorefining and has been well received so far. There will be several more pick-ups this summer, and the council is considering continuing the program next summer. The activity is open to all kids, not just the ones in the Mabel Summer Rec program. Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult.

Public Works Department Director Robert Miereau informed the council that the cement slab for one of the picnic shelters at the park has partially sunk into the ground as a result of the flooding in June, 2013. He recommended that the cement be re-poured and the legs of the canopy refastened to make them more stable. The project will cost $4,675 and Miereau will look into finding sponsors for it. A motion was passed to make the repairs.

The buildings at 121, 125, and 114 Main Street were discussed as the city now owns those properties. Karen Larson will obtain details on an EDA loan for upkeep as the city decides what to do with the buildings.
