City of Mabel continues search for ambulance crew members

Posted in Mabel Government

The Mabel City Council met on May 14, 2014 at 7 p.m. All council members were present.

One bid from Donald Garness was received for the lot across from the nursing home that the city is selling. The council approved a motion to accept the bid.

Neil Folstad was present to discuss the issues that the Mabel Ambulance Service is facing. Currently, there are only four people on the ambulance crew. After the last run of advertising, 11 people signed up to take the EMT class, but only two are still in the class. If the ambulance service does not recruit more members soon to help cover hours, the ambulance service may be fined or shut down by the state for missing calls. The council discussed different methods of raising public awareness for the issue and it was decided to run an ad and a public notice in the Mabel News Record and possibly a press release on the radio.

Shawn Welty from Davy Engineering was present at the meeting to update the council on the amendment to the bids that were awarded at the April 9, 2014 city council meeting. Davy Engineering presented the amendments to Rural Development for review. Rural Development recommended going ahead with the amendments to the previous bids to include all of the alternate items instead of just the base bid. A motion was passed to accept the amendments.

Gary Steuart asked the council for permission to bring six to eight beehives into Mabel. City Clerk Karen Larson stated that city ordinances don’t say anything about beehives in city limits. The council members questioned Steuart about the safety of Mabel residents if he were to set up the beehives in Mabel and determined that it wouldn’t be a problem. They agreed to allow the beehives on a trial run.

The minutes from the April 9, 2014 meeting were reviewed and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

Public Works Department Director Robert Miereau updated the council on the Cherrywood Drive improvements. All four of the documents necessary to begin the project have been signed, and the project is moving forward.

City Clerk Karen Larson informed the council that the AED or Automated External Defibrillator for the community center has arrived and will be installed in the hallway soon. The AED was supplied by a three-year grant that all cities in Fillmore County were awarded. The City of Mabel will receive another AED .....
