The Mabel city council met on November 12, 2014 at 7 pm. City council member Sue Amunrud was absent.

Sean Welty from Davy Engineering presented an update to the council. The demolition contractor is expected to come in the next week or two to take out the old water tower. There will be two bacteria tests done on the water from the new tower before demolishing the old one to be sure it is ready to use.

American Structures sent a payment request for their work on the new water tower which will be completed next week. The payment request was approved by the council.

The underground utility work is moving along well. There have been a number of spot repairs done thus far.

Jech Excavating, Inc. issued a payment request to the City of Mabel. They are still working out some details of payment with Rural Development. Welty suggested only paying for the work completed to date concurrent with approval from Rural Development at this time. The council approved the measure.

Mabel resident Mike Tripp was present at the meeting with a concern over the city ordinance that semi trucks cannot be parked on city streets. He stated that he’s parked his semi in front of his house for nine or ten years without an issue, but has recently been made aware that he can no longer do so. During the winter months, the truck needs to be plugged in, and he’s been unable to find a convenient place to park his truck where he would have access to an electrical outlet. City maintenance director Bob Miereau suggested parking the semi in the EDA parking lot on Railway Avenue. An electrical meter could be installed at the location so Tripp could plug in his truck. Tripp was amiable to the suggestion and assured the council that he will pay for the electricity if he’s able to park there. The council agreed to let Tripp park in the EDA parking lot.

The minutes from the October 8, 2014 meeting were reviewed by the council members and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

A representative of Alliant came to the Community Center to finish sanding down and painting the splotches on the foundation and stairs and to paint the handrails. City Clerk Karen Larson stated that the job is still not done to satisfaction. Alliant has requested full payment of the retainage fee, of which the city has paid 25% so far. The council approved a motion by Terry Tork .....
