Mabel City Council discusses changes to parking ordinances


Mon, Oct 26th, 2015
Posted in Mabel Government

The Mabel City Council met on October 21 at 7 p.m. Mayor Jim Westby was absent.

Pat Bailey from the Minnesota Department of Health was present at the meeting to discuss the development of a wellhead protection plan for the City of Mabel’s drinking water supply wells. She passed out maps to the council members that showed two areas in Mabel that need to be protected. The city will need to identify any wells within those areas. She noted that the city’s wells have been assigned a low vulnerability for contamination, which is good.

A public hearing was opened to discuss the parking ordinances for city streets. Greg Scheiber from the office of City Attorney, Richard Nethercut was present to answer any questions from the public and the council about the first draft of the updated ordinances. City Administrator Karen Larson had spoken to the administrator of Spring Valley about the city’s ordinances and learned that Spring Valley issues permits for street parking with the condition that the permit holder clean up the snow in that spot within 24 hours of snowfall. The Mabel council will have to consider fees and policy if instituting permit parking.

The council would like to create a 24 hour limitation on parking on the street year round with no parking from the hours of 2-6 a.m. during the winter months to allow for clean snow removal.

Fillmore County Deputy Jesse Grabau discussed the enforcement of the ordinances with the council and noted that, “It’s going to be an education period no matter what.”

The discussion was tabled for the time being and the public hearing was closed.

Mark Davy from Davy Engineering presented several change items to the council to approve. Most of them were clean-up type items to finish the street project.

The council revisited the possibility of installing security cameras at the community center and wastewater treatment plant. Gerard Cox from Per Mar Security was present at the meeting to answer any questions. He noted that the company already has several accounts in the City of Mabel and that, with drug use so rampant in the area, security is becoming a necessity. Director of City Maintenance, Bob Miereau will set up a time to assess the buildings with Cox for a free proposal.

The minutes of the September 16 meeting were reviewed and approved. The bills were also approved.
