City of Mabel Assesses Flood Damage

Posted in Mabel Government

By Hannah Wingert

The Mabel City Council met on July 10, 2013 at 7 pm. All city council members were present.

Carl Westby was present at the meeting to ask about updates on the Cherrywood Drive improvements. Once the easements are determined, the homeowners can sign their easements over to the city, which would give the city authority to blacktop and improve the road.

Robert Miereau announced that he will be staying on as Mabel’s city maintenance director.

City Clerk Karen Larson stated that the city will not be required to levy a fire tax in 2014.

The Mabel Business Association sent in a fireworks application for Steam Engine Days. The council approved the application.

Larson verified that the expiration date for the franchise with Mediacom was, in fact, 2016 as stated in the letter received last month. She spoke with Lee Grassley from Mediacom about the expiration and he offered to visit the city council at the next meeting in August to answer any questions they might have. Kirsten Wyffels suggested that the council also look at other options for cable or satellite service and have them presented at the August meeting as well.

Larson obtained a quote from Bill Myers for vertical blinds to be installed in the community center. He recommended using sun control shades instead as they would be less prone to breaking and less expensive. The council approved a motion to have the sun control shades installed by Bill Myers.

Kirsten Wyffels spoke about a meeting she’d been to for the Mabel Ambulance Service the night before. Winneshiek County has offered assistance to the ambulance service. The recent media coverage of the crew shortages has received a positive response, but the service is still in need of assistance. The Winneshiek service will look into the issues they’ve previously had with insurance and Medicare billing due to the fact that Winneshiek is across the Minnesota state border to allow them to offer assistance.

The city had Lyle Amdahl’s property surveyed as he is donating it to the city to be used as a parking lot for the community center. The value was set at $4,300. Amdahl will contact Attorney Richard Nethercut to draft a formal purchase agreement to ensure that the property is used as he would like.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension sent the city a resolution to sign to designate an authorized .....
