Wykoff Council talks snow removal


Mon, Feb 15th, 2016
Posted in Wykoff Government

The Wykoff City Council met on February 8 in regular session. Members in attendance were Mitch Grabau, Rocky Vreeman, Mayor Al Williams, Megan Lund, and Brody Mensink. City Clerk Cheryl Davis was absent. Following the approval of the agenda and prior minutes, the council OK’d the Treasurer’s Report, then opened the floor for visitors. Gerald Jacobsen had signed up to address the council, and he spoke about his concern regarding the snow removal on the sidewalk between the community center and downtown, saying, “For a guy using a wheelchair or a walker or cane, it’s dangerous!

Council members asked if this was caused by John using the pickup truck on the sidewalks, but he said it happened while the loader was being used. Council members clarified their instructions that the pickup should not be operated on the sidewalks at any time, and John said he would comply.

In Old Business, the council tabled the Comparable Worth Study until the next meeting. There was also discussion about buying a larger bucket for the snow plow, and/or a broom for the mower. The council voted to buy a new frame for the mower at a cost of about $560. Mayor Williams advocated for budgeting for the larger snow bucket in next year’s budget. It’s expected to cost around $3,600.

The council then asked to have a representative come to the next council meeting to answer questions about Waste Management switching to quarterly billing instead of monthly. The mayor explained that quarterly billing will be over $3 cheaper per month.

The council then heard a reque .....
