Wykoff Council shocks mayor


Fri, Jun 13th, 2014
Posted in Wykoff Government

The June 9 Wykoff City Council meeting started seemingly ordinary and ended with a bang. There were some simple matters discussed, such as approval for the fire department to purchase $500 in candy for summer parades, approval for the Wykoff summer youth softball teams to have their entry fees covered as well as some equipment with a cap of $500 in spending put in place.

The council approved the hire of Jeff Copley, of Rushford, as the Class B waste treatment center operator. Copley will be hired to oversee up to two other employees who will do maintenance under his direction and be trained along the way to achieve licenses as he has done with other cities. Copley will only be hired as eight hours per week at $36 per hour. The hire passed after a vote of 4-1. It was decided the council will meet with Coply on June 18 to set up job description(s) for the new hire(s).

There was some confusion about ordinances when the council discussed bushes owned by the Horsman family on North 4th Street. Previously, a complaint was brought to the council by a neighbor who had asked the city have the property owner remove them. Councilman Mitch Grabau, who also sits on the zoning committee, reported to the council Horsman had visited with the committee at their recent meeting and discussed the bushes. Grabau, on behalf of the zoning committee, recommended the bushes stay where they are and did not need to be removed. He stated if the bushes came out, many bushes would have to come out in town as well and the homeowner had planted them prior to the current ordinance in place. The recommendation also implied the bushes be removed only if a street were to be developed. City Clerk Davis read the current ordinance dealing with fencing, trees and shrubs, to the council. Councilwoman Larson made a motion to let the bushes remain in place and it was seconded by Councilman Comstock. The motion carried.

In other old business, City Maintenance Director Al Williams had provided a written note in regards to pump replacements for the city wells as he was not in attendance. Previously, Thein Well Company had suggested to the council pump replacement along with other parts to the city’s main well. Williams had contacted two other well companies for a second opinion. Both companies had said there are two wells still pumping the same gallons per minute as a year ago and they would not recommend doing anything until one of the pumps starts pumpi .....
