City of Orleans

Public Hearing and Regular Council Meeting

March 13, 2017

The Orleans City Council met in regular session Monday, March 13, 2017 at Orleans City Hall. Mayor Bill Maas called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. with the recital of the Pledge of Allegiance. Council present: Kristine Hoss, Eric Anderson, Terry Wilts, Benjamin Radcliffe, Keith Ostrum. Others present: Steve Anderson, Don Hemphill, Tom Hoffman, Ron Harris, Peggy Rick.

This was the time and place for a public hearing on the FY 17-18 Orleans City Budget. Mayor Maas opened the public hearing and asked for any oral or written comments. There being none, the public hearing was closed at 7:01 p.m.

The regular meeting was then called to order.

Motion Anderson, second Ostrum to approve February minutes, treasurer’s report and bills for payment. Motion carried 5-0.

Mayor Maas and Council member Anderson reported that they and Council member Radcliffe all met with a representative from Gass Trenching regarding the water main repairs made during construction in Fall of 2016. The council is disputing the charges Gass Trenching is charging for the repairs. Anderson reported to the council that the main issue is that the water main was not located properly and while trenching, they hit our water line. Instead of getting a relocate, they continued to do trenching and hit the main a second time, causing two necessary repairs. The city was not notified that the main was hit during their construction until they were making the necessary repairs. Council feels for similar work performed by other contractors the bill is excessive. Gass Trenching agreed to discount the original invoice by $1500 and asked the City to pay the Wedeking Excavation amount of the project also. New billing total is $6592.50. Council still feels the amount is excessive. Motion Radcliffe, second Anderson to approve payment of $3,000.00 to Gass Trenching for water main repairs and City will also cover Wedeking Excavating expense of the repairs. Motion carried. 5-0.

Council member Anderson approached council with concerns on building permits issued but that end up not being able to be constructed within the Ordinance time frame. He asked the council if there is any consideration to waive the new permit fee since it was paid with the original permit but was not able to be built within the 2 year time frame? Council feels that while there are circumstances that are sometimes out of an applicant’s control and they are unable to build, they do not want to set a precedence of waiving permit fees so no consideration will be given.

Mayor Maas addressed options for maintaining city Right-of-Ways and shoulders as well as snow removal issues regarding city streets where equipment and residents snow removal efforts are tearing up the City Right-of-Way and street shoulders. Council agreed if an ordinance is put in place, enforcement is an issue. Don Hemphill will review current City ordinances to see if there is any recourse and council agreed letters should be sent to property owners that are habitual offenders.

Council discussed 252nd Avenue street project and the re-seeding that did not get done per agreement with the project engineer as the original seeding did not meet the project specifications. The council also discussed the retaining wall within the project that has been damaged a second time due to snow removal efforts by property owners and what recourse the city has to collect damages from property owner. Hemphill will also review and send letters.

Motion Radcliffe, second Ostrum to approve a 3% raise increase for the City clerk for 2017 calendar year from $1,030.00 per month to $1060.90 per month, retroactive back to January 2017. Motion carried 5-0.

Anderson introduced RESOLUTION 17-06 ORLEANS FY 17-18 BUDGET and moved for its adoption. Wilts seconded and in roll call vote, Ostrum, Radcliffe, Wilts, Anderson, and Hoss voted aye. RESOLUTION 17-06 duly passed 5-0.

Steve Anderson representing the Dickinson County Conservation presented a resolution for council consideration in support of the Natural Resources & Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund established by the State of Iowa to support funding at the State level through local option sales tax for water conservation, trails and recreation efforts. Motion Anderson moved to approve RESOLUTION 17-07 NATURAL RESOURCES & OUTDOOR RECREATION FUND. Hoss seconded. In roll call vote, Hoss voted aye, Anderson, Wilts, Radcliffe and Ostrum voted nay. Motion failed 4-1.

Motion Wilts, second Radcliffe to approve Pioneer Beach Resort liquor permit 2017. Motion carried 5-0.

Mayor Maas reported that he met with Alliant Energy regarding upgrades they are doing to their system. It is a $2.4 million dollar project and the majority of the work is being performed in Orleans. He also reported that Alliant will also be petitioning the Iowa Utilities board to approve a rate increase in the near future.

Mayor Maas reported that he and the Spirit Lake Administrator will be meeting to discuss water main system to install filter system to prevent infiltration of zebra muscles.

Clerk reported that ICAP performed an insurance audit on 3-10-17 of city property.

Council also reviewed drainage needs on Sunrise Drive and with Joe Vanderlaan and Roger Hagedorn properties and reviewed Ron Harris storage unit permit request and possible drainage issues.

City Manager Ballis stated the total tax levy rate per $1000 valuation on regular property stayed the same at $2.00945 and the agricultural land stayed the same at $2.00694. There were no major adjustments to this year’s budget except for the addition of funds to cover group insurance. $125,000 was also added to the budget to cover the first year lease of a new plow truck and purchasing add on equipment for that truck.

Resolution 2017-3-1 to adopt the FY 2017/2018 Budget: Motion to approve -Ladegaard/Seconded-Paxton. Roll call all ayes. Motion carried.

Russ Beckendorf to present MHR Insurance Renewal: Russ Beckendorf presented the city’s insurance renewal plan to the mayor and council. Beckendorf explained an appraisal was done on the West Okoboji City Hall building. Due to this, the valuation on the building was raised and it changed our original classification. Overall, the property is now properly insured and it gave the city a discount of $2578.05 on this year’s premiums. In speaking about insurance coverage for the city Ed Rice brought up the slide at the city park which has raised some safety concerns from a few residents. Rice stated the slide was approved by ICAP and if the slide were to be altered or replaced it would not be covered.

Beckendorf explained additional coverage options with the mayor and council with cost differences. Beckendorf stated at this time the city has the minimum coverage of two million dollars. Motion to approve the insurance renewal with no changes – Hein/Seconded-Olson. Motion carried.

Council to consider bid to update and redesign the cities website: Motion to approve the update and redesign of the cities website with payment made in full after project is complete – Ladegaard/Seconded-Paxton. Motion carried.

Council to discuss 2017 1st Street Storm Sewer Project at 3011 and 3013 1st Street: The city would like to construct a new intake and run a storm sewer pipe adjacent to the property line between 3011 and 3013 1st Street down to the lake. It was decided an 11 foot city drainage easement would be put in place. At this time the paperwork for the easement for both property owners is being drawn up. Once all the necessary paperwork is agreed upon we will revisit this in a future council meeting. The city is hoping the project will be completed by May 1, 2017. No action taken, information only.

Council to consider sending City Manager Lissa Ballis to the IMFOA Spring Conference and Data Technologies Spring User Group April 19-21, 2017 and the Iowa Municipal Professions Institute July 17-21 and July 24-6, 2017. Council approves educational opportunities. No action needed.

Administrative reports: There is a Board of Adjustment meeting scheduled for March 20, 2017 at 5pm for a variance request by Pat and Susan Carr and Eva Shine.

The City of Arnolds Park has included the West Okoboji Grove Road street project in their FY17/18 budget. A plan will be submitted for our review and once the project is complete the City of Arnolds Park will bill us for our portion of the project.

Pat O’Brien has been in contact with the city concerning the West Okoboji Rental letter that was sent out in January to all its residents. O’Brien had quite a few questions and overall the city felt it was best to turn it over to City Attorney Maahs to reply to his concerns at this time.
