Mabel street and sewer project on track for completion


Mon, Jul 13th, 2015
Posted in Mabel Government

Curtis Marx from Davy Engineering updated the Mabel city council at their regular meeting on July 8, 2015. Marx reported that the project is on schedule and is expected to be finished by the substantial completion date of July 16. There will be some clean-up to do after that date. The rest of the paving will be done in August 2015 and finished in May 2016, after the materials have had a chance to set over the winter.

Marx requested that semi trucks and trailers be kept from driving on Railway Road this fall as the road is very silty and is unable to be paved this year. City maintenance director Bob Miereau assured Marx that he’ll keep an eye on the road.

Main Street failed a roll test earlier in the day because the material is saturated from the rain and still soft. Marx plans to repeat the test after a few hot dry days which should harden the road.

The Main Street lighting project is going well. The bases have been poured and the conduits installed. The poles are expected to arrive on August 7 and will be set in place at that time.

A partial payment to Jech Excavating was approved pending approval by Rural Development.

Visu-Sewer submitted a certificate of substantial completion which was approved by the council.

A zoning permit request from Dustin and Kayla Tollefsrud was received and approved.

The City of Mabel has received another AED device. Three other devices are currently located at the school, the clinic, and the community center. The public library and the fire hall were both suggested as possible locations for the new device. After considering the hours of service, accessibility, and patronage, the council voted to place the AED device in the fire hall.

City clerk Karen Larson advised the council that the water rates will probably have to be raised soon. She will have more information and numbers at next month’s meeting. Larson gave kudos to the residents of Mabel for conserving electricity during the 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. power-down initiative. Because of the city’s conservancy, the electric rates will not be increased at this time.

Miereau had a conversation with Tri-County Electric concerning the alley on Melby Way. The alley is overgrown with trees that need to be cleaned up to free the electric lines. Tri-County gave Miereau a quote for the project. Larson stated that since funds are available, this wou .....
