Whalan City Council talks trees and AEDs at October 12 meeting


Mon, Oct 19th, 2015
Posted in Whalan Government

The Whalan City Council met on Monday, October 12, at 5 p.m. for its regularly scheduled monthly meeting. All council members—Mayor Rory Berekvam, Everett Johnson, Margaret Chiglo, Jim Gustavson, and David Rahn--were in attendance. Last month’s minutes were unanimously approved, as was the new Treasurer’s Report as presented by Whalan Town Clerk, Lolly Melander.

In a follow-up to last month’s discussions concerning Whalan’s Zoning Committee, the current membership of that committee was confirmed by the council as consisting of Mayor Berekvam, Butch Culbertson, Lolly Melander, and Marlys Tuftin.

It was reported to the council that large, lighted Christmas wreaths formerly used by the town of Peterson are now available for purchase at $10 per wreath. Two wreaths have been purchased already for use in Whalan. There was discussion about purchasing additional wreaths and where they might be placed. Council member Everett Johnson said that a wreath could be easily hung in the gazebo, as well as in other town locations. It was agreed that a total of ten additional wreaths will be purchased, if they are still available for sale from Peterson. A local resident volunteered to the Council to cover the cost of the additional wreaths.

There was follow-up discussion amongst the visitors present and the Whalan Council regarding the previous month’s zoning committee matters. Comments from a number of visitors included encouragement to the council to seek all relevant information and viewpoints in the decision-making process, and to document (in writing) any grievances brought before the council. “Whalan has good people who work together!” was a sentiment expressed by one local resident, echoed in Mayor Rory B’s admonition: “We’re in a learning phase in many of these zoning matters--let’s move on and get some business done.”

Council member David Rahn asked the council if the town of Whalan would be interested in the donation of a “walking plow” that had once belonged to Rahn’s grandfather. The council gratefully accepted the donation of this horse-drawn antique plow, which will be placed in town at a location to be determined at a later date.

It was reported that Dave Norby’s Tree Service of Mabel, Minn., has completed most of the tree-trimming scheduled on public property in Whalan. The remaining work will be completed over the next few weeks.
