The Mabel city council met on December 10, 2014 at 7 p.m. All council members were present.

Deputy Dan Dornink attended the meeting to discuss the purchase of a new squad car for the Mabel City Police Department. He acquired bids from Ford, Chevy, and Dodge and compiled the best bids for the council to see. The camera system will also need to be updated as the VCR it is currently run on is breaking down. It will be upgraded to a digital system. The council approved a motion to purchase a 2015 Ford Intercepter Sedan with all wheel drive.

Sean Welty from Davy Engineering presented an update to the council. The construction is currently in a lull, but there are still projects being worked on. The standpipe portion of the project was delayed which pushed the final completion date back to spring.
