Ostrander city council discuss funding for LeRoy-Ostrander school pool

Mon, Dec 8th, 2014
Posted in Ostrander Features

The Ostrander city council met on Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 for their regular meeting. Visitors included Mike Souhrada of LeRoy to discuss funding of the pool located within the LeRoy-Ostrander school. Souhrada explained a non-profit group raises funds for the maintenance of the pool as it had become a financial hindrance to the district several years ago. The school had to focus its dollars on educational needs and was unable to keep up with the costs of the pool maintenance. Souhrada addressed the needs of the pool to the council in hopes they council would see it as a viable part of their communities. To date, the fundraising group was shy of the $30,000 needed to maintain the pool for the next five years. He asked the council to consider a donation of $5,000, as the group had exhausted all other resources. Mayor Nesler asked city attorney Scott Springer if this was something the city could legally do. Springer said there was a limit as to what a city could donate but did not know the information off hand and would check into it. Councilwoman Jones and councilman Start were in adamant agreement to help the group as much as was allowed. Both agreed it was an asset to both communities.

Brian Mahlm of Bolton & Menk Engineering presented a powerpoint explanation of the proposed new treatment center to the council. He explained the next step in the process was to submit a preliminary engineering report and walked the council through each topic that would be covered in it. The report will include project planning, existing facilities and needs for the project as well as alternatives considered, selection of alternative, proposed overall project and conclusions and recommendations. Mahlm left no stone unturned as he depicted the contents of the report to the council. Councilwoman Jones made a motion to submit the report, it was seconded by councilman Start and carried unanimously.

Attorney Scott Springer submitted an ordinance change concerning annual liquor licensing for the city at the council’s previous request. The ordinance will stay virtually the same with only one addition made; for every 30 days a business is past due, the council will have the discretion to penalize license issuing that could result in a length of time a business would have to halt liquor sales. A motion was passed to enact the new ordinance.
