Ostrander welcomes county commissioner candidate


Fri, Aug 8th, 2014
Posted in Ostrander Government

Harry Root, an upcoming candidate for Fillmore County Commissioner, was the only visitor at the Ostrander City Council meeting on Tuesday, August 5. Root introduced himself to the council and explained what he felt his role as Commissioner would be if elected. He spoke of the 5-year plan Fillmore County is currently implementing for infrastructure, including repairs to Highway 14 and a bridge replacement just north of Ostrander.

Root’s goal as commissioner would be to meet with every city and /or township governing bodies a minimum of once a year to give updates on what is happening in Fillmore County as well as addressing any questions or concerns each community may have. Root explained the Commissioner has more responsibilities than roads and bridges, citing social services and public health as two things the commissioner helps oversee. The council thanked Root for taking the time to speak with them.

Fire Chief Jimmy Dean informed the council of a $3,000 donation received as a result of a controlled burn the fire department conducted on acreage just outside of town. He also asked for approval to replace one of the town’s AEDs that would no longer be able to be used by the end of 2014. He explained the Ostrander First Responders and the Fire Department would split the cost.

The city was notified via letter by Fillmore County that the property located at 209 Minnesota Street was forfeited and the county requested a public auction. The council decided the city would have no interest in the property, mainly because of the cost to remove the home that resides on it, and will grant permission to the county to proceed with auction.

Wolf’s Den owner, Royal Dempewolf, had previously attended a council meeting to inquire about a permit for a street dance some time in August. He was told at that time it would be put on the agenda for the August meeting. However, Dempewolf was not in attendance at the meeting. This left the council trying to make a decision whether or not to grant the permit without the details.

City Clerk Chris Hyrkas informed the council the Wolf’s Den was past due on city bills as well and also read the city ordinance pertaining to permits; citing permits were to be requested 30 days prior to the event. Councilwoman Erin Brugh noted Dempewolf had been to the previous council meeting to discuss and asked if he had turned in any paperwork; City Clerk Chris Hyrkas respo .....
