Canton forgives over-run charges

Posted in Canton Government

A resolution to forgive water/sewer over-run charges was approved at the March 11 meeting of the Canton City Council. There will be no charge for water/sewer over-run for the months of January, February and March due to extreme cold weather. Town Engineer Jon Nordsving reported that there have been no frozen water lines or mains in Canton.

Canton Day Off

Councilor Cindy Shanks provided an update on the plans for this year’s Canton Day Off celebration in August. The schedule of events is coming together and is available online at www.cantondayoff.com. T-shirts will also be available online. The city is seeking food vendors for the occasion. If interested, please contact the City Clerk’s office at (507) 743-5000 for more information.

The idea of Adopt-a-Planter was suggested for Canton Day Off. There are nine city planters that could be adopted, with responsibilities including planting, watering, decorating and maintaining the planter through the Canton Day Off weekend. The council also discussed the possibility of making it a contest and would like to find out if there is any interest. Contact Lolly at the City Clerk’s Office if you are interested in adopting a planter. Planters will be adopted on a first come, first served basis.

Other business

Upon review of the EPA rules for back-up generators it was determined that Canton does not have any compliance requirements to meet, only testing and maintenance. A motion to “Opt-In” to the Tri-County Electric Peak Alert program was approved.

The contract with Municipal Pipe Tool Company for testing and maintenance of the sewer lines was renewed for five years.

A contribution of $100 to the Mabel-Canton Post Prom was approved.

Construction will begin again on the old liquor store building as soon as the weather improves.

The next regular meeting of the Canton City Council is on Wednesday, April 9 at 7 p.m.
