The Ostrander city council met on January 5 for a regular meeting. Members present were Erin Brugh, Pam Kunert, Clerk Chris Hyrkas, Heidi Jones, and DJ Start. Mayor Pat Nesler was absent. No visitors had signed up to address the council, so following the consent agenda items, the council heard from Dustin Tart, reporting on city maintenance. He said, “There’s nothing new, everything worked great”, and council members praised his work on snow removal. PeopleService staff were not in attendance, but had submitted a written report on Water Operation & Maintenance and Wastewater Operation & Maintenance.

Police Chief Tom Mosher gave his monthly activity report. He told of completing his post board audit, which he said includes review of many policies that he must have in order to perform his job. He explained, “Just to give you an idea,…if I don’t go to Pursuit training and have a Pursuit policy, I cannot pursue any vehicle, for any reason…so these are really important.” He also reminded the council that the situation of residents having more dogs than the city’s ordinance allows (three) is still up in the air, and he said there is more than one such household in the city.

In Old Business, the council discussed the 2016 Schedule of Fees, and considered raising water sewer rates, but elected to approve the fees as is, and will check with Mike Bubany before making any changes. The council also discussed how to reimburse Cody Koebke for the city’s use of his tractor in 2015. It was decided to ask him to submit a billing.

In New Business, Brian Malm, representing the Bolton & Menk engineering firm, wrote a letter asking for council approval to start the topographic survey of the city in January to get a jump start on the project. This was approved. The council also approved the application of Pat Nesler to join the fire department, pending background checks. Clerk Hyrkas stated that the city needs to have all city employees and volunteers submit an I-9 form, and she discovered none are on file for fire department staff. She will work on getting all I-9’s out to people to fill out and turn in.

Next, the council discussed Tanner Wolfe’s status on the fire department. Hyrkas said he hasn’t been active with the department since 2013. After discussion, the council asked Hyrkas to draft a letter to him and to include his liability for repaying training costs. Hyrkas will have Mayor Nesl .....
