Peterson City Council holds July Meeting


Fri, Jul 12th, 2013
Posted in Peterson Government

By Angie Rodenburg

The Peterson City Council held their monthly meeting on July 10 at Peterson City Hall. The meeting proved to be an eventful one with numerous issues addressed. At the forefront of debate was an issue pertaining to Mike Eidenschink, owner of Chuck’s Feed and Grain.

A complaint had been submitted to the City Council regarding the parking of vehicles and equipment belonging to Chuck’s Feed and Grain in a C1 Lot, which is not designated for parking. Chuck’s Feed and Grain, as well as two other businesses that received complaints for different reasons, were sent letters addressing the complaints made against them from the Peterson City Attorney, Thomas Manion. The letter spoke of the complaints and that changes must be made immediately. The letter also stated the potential punishments for noncompliance, which included a fine and jail time, as outlined in the city ordinance. Debate ensued about the appropriateness of such a letter being sent instead of the issue being resolved face to face. No resolution on the parking matter was reached at the meeting.

However, City Council member Dick Lee motioned to “cease any letters to Chuck’s Feed and Grain or to other businesses and that no further action be taken until we, as a council, have reached an agreement on what should be done.” The motion was passed.

There was also a County 25 update given by Bryan Holtz, of the engineering firm Yaggy Colby. Holtz spoke of the work his firm would be doing on a feasibility study, which would include infrastructure investigation on the water main, sewer systems, etc. The investigation would also provide an estimate for the city cost of the project. The motion to accept Yaggy Colby’s feasibility study proposal was passed by the council. Peterson Mayor, Jennifer Wood, said, “This is the first step in getting ready for the repairs on County 25, that has a goal of being done in 2014.”

A decision was also made by the council to allow the concession stand and pavilion by the campground to be rented out for $25 each. If interested in renting the pavilion, contact the city of Peterson at (507)-875-2222 or make a reservation online at petersonmn.org.

The next Peterson City Council meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 14 at 7 pm.
