Ostrander city council met in regular session on September 1. Members present were Erin Brugh, Pam Kunert, Mayor Pat Nesler, and Clerk Chris Hyrkas. Following the Pledge of Allegiance and approval of the consent agenda, the council heard from department heads.

Public Works Director Jimmie Dean stated that “Everything’s running well” despite heavy rains last week, and said some repair/maintenance parts are on order. Dustin Tart (Maintenance) asked about placement of the park bench, which CHS has donated in memory of Larry Vreeman. The bench is to be placed at the park. Jimmie Dean said they’d scouted out a spot south of the pavilion and between the trees. He said if this location is approved, the city will need to simply call Gopher One prior to digging to install the bench. The council OK’d this placement. Mayor Nesler also asked Dustin to please sweep grass off sidewalks after mowing.

Police Chief Tom Mosher updated the council on news in his department. He said the state has implemented a new system called the Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center (MAARC) which he said connects to social services, human services, and law enforcement agencies. Chief Mosher informed the council that a property on the north edge of town has been taken over by a bank, and will now get mowed and cleaned up. He reminded residents to always lock homes, buildings, and vehicles to help prevent theft or break-ins. Chief Mosher then asked the council to consider a resolution to allow him more access to court records. He said there is no cost if the council approves this resolution. After brief discussion, the council OK’d the resolution.

A citizen (Phil) addressed the council with two complaints. First, he said he’d requested a visit from a deputy on an issue, but no officer ever showed up. When asked, he admitted he hadn’t called a second time. Second, he spoke about the recent posting requiring him to have his dog vaccinated, licensed, and spayed/neutered. Chief Mosher asked who was stating that dogs needed to be spayed/neutered, and Phil said the city’s letter stated that. Chief Mosher retrieved a copy of the letter and offered it to Phil. Mosher read the letter, which had been posted at the LifeStyle Apartments. Chief Mosher explained, “Nobody’s ever been told to spay or neuter” their dog (by the city of Ostrander). Mayor Nesler summarized that requirement was just to have dogs vaccinated and licensed, and he .....
