Wykoff City Council sets Special Meeting for Sewer Treatment Center Bids


Fri, Jul 12th, 2013
Posted in Wykoff Government

By Jackie Horsman

The Wykoff City Council met on Monday, July 8 with a full agenda to discuss, including the city’s proposed sewer treatment center. Kevin Graves, of WHKS, outlined the updated plans for the city’s new sewer treatment center. There were a few changes to the previous plans due to MPCA (Minnesota Pollution Control Agency) requests. Changes included more piping and valves for each clarifier in the plant, adding a plastic liner and additional fencing to the sand drying beds and changes to the chemical tank liners, making them double lined. Council member Megan Larson questioned the cost of these items but Graves was not prepared to give a solid figure. All bids for the project are to be submitted to Wykoff City Hall by August 15. A special council meeting will be held August 19 for council members to review bids; the meeting will be open to the public.

There was discussion concerning the Cavanaugh property, located on Highway 80, and the MPCA. Visitor John Bremseth expressed an interest in a few properties along Highway 80 in order to move his current business, Bremseth Body Shop. The MPCA contacted Mayor Lyman Hare about the property and Mayor Hare referred the call to the city attorney. Council members and City Clerk Cheryl Davis, speculated about the property’s potential clean-up cost and responsibilities but no certain estimate was given.

On Tuesday, July 16 at 7pm an interview will be conducted for a public works director, a position currently held by Al Williams. He is scheduled to retire November 1, 2013. The interviewee, who is unnamed, will meet with council members and the public is welcomed to attend. City employee reviews will also be given on the 16 starting at 6:15pm and continuing after the interview for the public works director if needed. Wykoff employs two full time employees and three part time employees, all will receive reviews.

The council also discussed an outstanding revolving loan for Gold Street Pizza, which is now closed. The first payment of $5,302.96 was due October 1, 2012 and has yet to be received. City Clerk Cheryl Davis, has been in contact with the owner, Mary Sackett, who initiated the loan. Davis reported to the council that the owner said she could not make a payment until the business sold. Council member Jeremy Comstock made a motion to foreclose on the property; the motion was seconded and carried.
