M-C Junior Olympics Volleyball team attends Mabel City Council meeting

The Mabel City Council met on April 8, 2015 at 7 p.m. All council members were present.

Bobbie Vickerman was present at the meeting along with most of the Mabel-Canton Junior Olympics Volleyball team. The team is raising funds for a trip to the national volleyball tournament in New Orleans in June. They asked permission to hold a 5K race in May. The race will use the same route as the race hosted by the Mabel-Canton Junior class. It will be held at 8 pm and will be a glow-in-the dark theme. They have already okayed the race with Fillmore County Sheriff Tom Kaase and the Mabel Fire Department. The team also asked for permission to use the concession stand during the softball games. If they aren’t able to raise enough funds for the trip by the beginning of June, they would like to hold a beanbag tournament with the council’s permission. The council approved a motion to grant permission for all three of the team’s requests.

The council held a public hearing for the revamping of the partial alley behind the houses on Locust Street and Elm Street to make it a through alley. Two residents of the street attended the meeting. Tricia Sand stated that she would be able to enjoy her property more if the alley were extended through. The snowplows have a hard time plowing and maintaining it with the way it is now and Sand ends up with a lot of gravel in her yard every spring. She mentioned that snowmobiles go through it during the winter months and asked, “if snowmobiles can enjoy the right-of-way, why can’t we as landowners enjoy it too?” Daycare owner Nikki Eiken, who also owns a property on the same street voiced concern for her children’s safety if traffic increases in the alley behind her home since the children in her daycare often play in the backyard. She wondered if signs could be posted warning motorists to slow down and watch for children. The council was amiable to the idea, and City Maintenance Director Bob Miereau noted that he would be able to put up whatever signage the landowners requested. Mayor Jim Westby suggested making the alley a one-way which would slow traffic down and prevent people from driving through it when they leave the Amoco gas station. A motion to extend the alley through and make it a one-way was approved.

The minutes from the March 11, 2015 meeting were reviewed by the council members and approved.
