WAHPETON CITY COUNCIL

REGULAR SESSION – MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2017

5:00 P.M. WAHPETON CITY HALL

The Wahpeton City Council met on Monday, February 13, 2017 at 5 p.m. in Wahpeton City Hall. Present were Mayor Johnson, Councilmen Rierson, Jack Jones, Blau and Prior. City Atty. Hemphill and city employees Tielbur & Hanna were also present. Councilman Brad Jones was absent.

Mayor Johnson called the meeting to order with the Pledge of Allegiance.

J.Jones moved and Prior seconded to approve the agenda. All ayes – motion carried.

Blau moved and Rierson seconded to approve the consent agenda containing the January 9, 2017 Regular Session Minutes, the January 13, 2017 Special Session minutes, the January Claims, Treasurer and Financial Reports. All ayes – motion carried.

Under citizen’s comments, Allison Swenning asked if we were going to update our city ordinances. They were updated in 2015. Nancy Benson commented on the improved appearance of the recycling bins.

The mayor opened the public hearing for the proposed Annual Budget for Fiscal Year 2017/18. Tielbur explained the tax levy rate will remain at 3%, the estimated budget revenue will be $1,782,331.00 and the estimated expenses will be $1,602,600.00. There was a question concerning funding designated to the DC Trails board. The public hearing was closed. Prior moved and J. Jones seconded to approve Resolution 17-3, A Resolution Adopting the Annual Budget for the Fiscal Year ending June 30, 2018. Roll call vote: J.Jones – aye, Rierson – aye, Blau – aye, Prior – aye. All ayes – motion carried.

Next, Council discussed the Bike Trail. Paul Pettitti again asked the council to rescind a motion made at an earlier council meeting approving a bike trail along Edgewood Drive because the 30-day appeal period to the DNR had expired. Council felt the issue was dead and there was no reason to rescind the motion because DNR did not approve the trail so there was no further reason to discuss the issue. Hemphill indicated the action the council took was contingent upon the action of the DNR which has the primary authority of the trail & that contingency has not been satisfied. He also indicated that councils normally do not make motions that they are not going to do something. Paul Pettitti and Randy Kempf voiced their concerns, they were disappointed council would not rescind their motion and put the trail issue to rest, but no further action was taken.

J.Jones moved and Blau seconded to approve Pay Request #3 to Maguire Iron, Inc for the Wahpeton Water Tower Project in the amount of $194,750.00. All ayes, motion carried.

David Doxtad updated the council that due to an elevation increase in the tower, the contract required the modifications to the existing pumps but found that replacing the current pumps with 2 new 400 gal/minute pumps at the water plant for an additional $35,000 would be a better option. Maguire Iron has indicated Feb. 27th, 28th or March 1st would work for a tour of the water tower progress. David Doxtad and Bill Goldy discussed a 5-10 yr. capital improvement plan for needed infrastructure improvements replacing old water mains and streets repairs within the city.

Rierson moved and J.Jones seconded to approve funding of $2,500 for the Okoboji Blue Water Festival. All ayes – motion carried.

Prior moved and Rierson seconded to sell the 5 compartment recycling bin. All ayes – motion carried.

Bids had not been received for a new snow plow so no action was taken.

Hemphill discussed the upcoming litigation with Milford Municipal Utilities. Trial is set for June 14th.

Hemphill sent letters to a couple residents on Manhattan concerning the carriage path. Hanna reported on some water leaks, a complaint of water smell, street updates and an accident causing damage to the Harpen St. bridge. Tielbur reported ICAP gave $1,000 to the city for purchase of safety equipment. Prior reported on a Fire Board meeting. J.Jones addressed a light on Hwy.86 and suggested a newsletter reminder to walkers and bikers.

Being no further business, Mayor Johnson adjourned the meeting at 6:36 p.m. All ayes – motion carried.

REVENUE RECEIVED FOR JANUARY 2017: General-$41,708.91, Road Use-$3,774.55, Local Option-$6,334.58, Equipment Reserve-$50,000.00, Water Tower Fund-$500,000.00, Water Utility-$63,187.38 for a total of $665,005.42. ATTEST: Bonnie R. Tielbur, City Clerk/Admin.
