Scott Springer, of Springer & Gumbel P.A., addressed the Ostrander City Council at the June meeting and explained the services and experience offered by his law firm. Springer & Gumbel have offices in Preston, Spring Valley and Chatfield. The firm also works for the cities of Spring Valley, Rushford, Lewiston and Chatfield.

Since the city’s previous attorney, Kelly Wagner, left the Baulder Law Office the council was considering a new attorney. One that had an office close by and would be easily accessible if needed. Mayor Pat Nessler asked Springer about their availability; wanting to know if nights, weekends or last minute things were an issue. Springer responded saying they have three attorneys and are available to clients 24/7. Officer Tom Mosher said sometimes assistance was needed right away and it is important that calls and emails be returned. Springer acknowledged that no one is perfect but they do their best to take care of needs immediately.

The proposed hourly rate given to the council is $125/hour for attorney fees. Councilman Start made a motion to hire Springer & Gumbel P.A. and Councilwoman Kunert seconded. The motion carried and the firm was hired as the new city attorneys.

A date was decided for the public informational meeting concerning the new treatment center. June 24 was chosen and a notification will be published in the city’s newspaper, the Fillmore County Journal, when the details are in place.

Ann Keim, of First LeRoy Agency, was also on hand with the proposed renewal of the city’s insurance policy. The only change occurring was the conversion of one fire truck to a regular truck. The motion carried to accept the new policy.

The Wolf’s Den was given a permit for an outdoor band to be used on June 21st. Royal and Lynn Dempewolf were on hand to update the council with a list of events that would be taking place on the 21st to benefit the city’s park fund.

There was concern raised by a citizen of Ostrander about ‘proposed’ fees to use the city’s amenities such as the ball field and the volleyball court. His opinion was this was for city use and there should not be a charge. The council agreed and was not sure where this talk had come from as they had not proposed to do so. Public Works Director, Jimmie Dean, spoke up and explained that he had suggested it in conversations as a free will donation to help cover the costs of mainten .....
