The Mabel City Council met on September 10, 2014 at 7 p.m. Mayor Brian Street was not present at the meeting. Council member Terry Torkelson was acting mayor.

Four representatives from the Mabel-Canton junior class were present to ask permission from the council to use the city’s streets for the Cougar Costume 5K Run/Walk and Kids’ 1 Mile Run on October 11, 2014. The route would be the same as last year, and the road construction shouldn’t be a problem. The council agreed to the request.

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

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

The Minnesota Municipal Utilities Association’s Safety Management Program contract is up for renewal. There is a price increase of $300 total this year. The Association provides classes and safety training for city utility workers. The council approved the contract renewal.

The League of MN Cities Insurance Trust Liability Coverage waiver form was signed by Acting Mayor, Terry Torkelson.

The Minnesota Basic Code of Ordinances has been revised and updated. The cost for the supplement to the ordinances is $400. City Clerk Karen Larson spoke with the city’s attorney, Richard Nethercutt, who recommended adopting the changes in the ordinance and paying for the supplement. The council approved the purchase.

Hoskins submitted a Certificate of Substantial Completion and Certificate of Final Approval to the city council for approval. A motion was passed to accept the certificates.

A change order was received from Jech Excavating due to unsatisfactory subgrade dirt found on one of the streets under construction. The dirt had to be replaced or the road would not have been satisfactory. The extra work and materials came to a total of $39,000. The council approved the change order contingent on approval from Rural Development.

A payment in the amount of $212,028.60 was approved as a partial payment to Jech Excavating for the work done on the road construction.

The council wished to thank the Mabel Lions Club for their generous donation of $1,000 for the new park shelter being built at Steam Engine Park.
