Mabel City Council approves final budget and levy


Fri, Dec 13th, 2013
Posted in Mabel Government

The Mabel City Council met on December 11, 2013 at 7 p.m. All council members were present.

The minutes from the November 13, 2013 meeting were reviewed and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

LeAnn Jevne was present at the meeting to discuss the wording for a limited parking sign to be put up in front of her shop. She has had issues, as recently as the day before the meeting, with people parking in front of her shop for extended periods of time which is inconvenient for her customers. She suggested putting up a customer parking only sign. Council member Laura St. Mary was against the exclusivity of that and suggested putting up a two hour parking sign instead. After some discussion, the council approved a motion to put up a sign reading “2 hour parking from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.” It was also noted that other Main Street businesses are welcome to request a sign if needed as well.

City Clerk Karen Larson pointed out that city worker Chuck Dahl is currently being paid wages that are slightly below the rate he should be at with his experience and time. The council passed a motion to bump Dahl up to the wage bracket that is more appropriate.

Gene Grover from Local 49 was present to answer any questions the council had about the union contract before it was signed. The contract was for a new health insurance plan for the city employees which will benefit both the city and the employees. All council members were in favor of the change.

The council approved Tim Mengis as the new fire department chief and welcomed him to his new position.

City Clerk Karen Larson noted that the 1994 Improvement Fund is currently overdrawn by $20 and has been for some time now. She spoke with the city’s auditor who recommended transferring $20 into the fund from the General Fund to bring the balance to $0. She also pointed out that the Sewer Fund will be approximately $10,000 short at the end of this year due to engineering costs. Money can be transferred into the fund from the Nursing Home Fund temporarily to cover that until the microloan that was approved at the last meeting is complete.

The liquor and cigarette license renewals were reviewed and approved.

The final budget and final levy were adopted and approved.

Mabel City Maintenance Director Robert Miereau presented the public works department repor .....
