Traughber explained the Personnel Committee would recommend the individual employees insurance be paid in full and the family would be 80%-20% spit which would be the same as the City of Okoboji. Traughber stated the Personnel Committee had several applications for the Clerk’s position but they felt one applicant was more qualified for this position.

Lakes Area Dog Park

Connie Rhodes explained the fence is finished around the dog park which completed the first phase. Rhodes stated the next phase would be grading and graveling a parking lot which would accommodate twenty cars. Rhodes explained the dog park is more than just a place to walk your dog. It has become a place for people to socialize. Rhodes brought pictures of dog waters that will be placed around the dog park at a cost of $4000.00 a piece. Rhodes is going around to the Cities asking if they would donate $1000.00 towards the dog park for the improvements. Traughber explained to Rhodes that he spoke with several citizens from our city that have dogs and they said it was too far to drive to use the dog park. Traughber added that the city has installed dog waste stations in the city parks. The Council thanked Rhodes for coming to the Council Meeting. The Council will discuss funding at January’s meeting.
