Ostrander ponders fire truck purchase


Mon, May 9th, 2016
Posted in Ostrander Government

The Ostrander City Council met on May 3 for a regular meeting. Members present were Erin Brugh, Pam Kunert, Mayor Pat Nesler, and DJ Start. Clerk Chris Hyrkas and Heidi Jones were absent. Insurance agent Ann Keim addressed the council regarding the city’s insurance coverage renewal, and she noted that the city has one less truck than before. She also asked the council to decide whether or not to waive the statutory tort limit, which is something each city must decide annually. She explained that if the limit is waived, then the city could be sued for any amount, so she said there’s really no reason to waive it. The council voted to not waive the limit.

Fire Chief Brian Miner gave a report on activity for the fire department. He said there were only two fire calls for the month. He also informed the council that there’s a used fire truck he’s been looking into purchasing. He said it’s a 1992 pumper truck, and in good condition, with a value of about $15,000. He said if the city could buy it, the city’s other truck could be kept as a “backup”. He has another option to look at, and will come back to the council with more information at a future meeting. Miner also said he’s got three new firemen starting training next week.

Dustin Tart gave a report on city maintenance, and said he completed the patch-up and re-seeding work at Bornholdt’s yard, fixing areas the city had damaged. He also discussed the additional power brush attachment that was sent by SEMA. Although it was not part of the original order, Tart said it would work really well for clearing off blacktop surfaces. The council agreed and OK’d the purchase of the additional $138.56 for the brush.

Police Chief Tom Mosher gave a monthly activity report and informed the council on trainings he completed. He also talked of the ongoing detour from Highway 16 south coming through Ostrander, stating that it’s causing additional traffic and noise. He said one day he counted 35 vehicles coming into Ostrander in 30 minutes. He explained that the detour is expected to end within a week. Mosher also asked the city to consider buying some new street signs, since some of them are so sun-faded that they are hard to read. He pointed out that this could cause delays in emergency vehicles reaching people in need of help. He estimated twelve signs could be replaced for about $390 total. No action was taken at this time.
