Mabel discusses ways to enforce city ordinances


Mon, May 18th, 2015
Posted in Mabel Government

The Mabel City Council met on May 13, 2015 at 7 p.m. All council members were present except for Terry Torkelson.

Mark Davy from Davy Engineering presented three change orders for the water and sewer project to the council and a pay request from Jech Excavating. The council approved the change orders and pay request pending concurrence from Rural Development.

The water and sewer project is expected to reach substantial completion in July.

The minutes from the April 8, 2015 meeting were reviewed by the council members and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

City Clerk Karen Larson applied for and received the Rockwell Collins Green Community Grant in the maximum amount of $2500 for the City of Mabel. The grant will go towards the streetlight project on North Main Street.

The council approved a zoning permit request from Debbie Marsden.

The Mabel deputies are now using the recently purchased squad car. The council voted to sell the old car, which is a 2010 Chevy Impala with 107,658 miles on it. Sealed bids for the car will be opened at the June council meeting.

The Ronald McDonald House Benefit Ride, which will pass through Mabel on July 26th, is considering making Mabel a food stop on their ride. A meal would be served at the Community Center at $5 a plate. The council approved a motion to accommodate the riders if the Benefit Ride decides to stop in Mabel.

Mayor Jim Westby recently attended the 2015 Transportation Press Conference in Bloomington, Minn. The difficulties that many small cities have maintaining and replacing their streets was discussed at the conference. Cities with populations over 5000 receive funds from the state for street upkeep while smaller cities are left to come up with the funds on their own. Westby encouraged the city council members to make sure their voices are heard on this issue.

Mayor Westby took some pictures of houses around the city of Mabel that are dilapidated or in need of clean-up to present to the council. When he returned from the conference a week later, a few of the homeowners had mowed their lawns and cleaned up the junk in their yards which was encouraging to see. The others still need to be addressed. City Clerk Karen Larson noted that letters were sent to homeowners who needed to mow their lawns, and that most of them have taken care .....
