Assistant County Attorney, Lonnie Saunders reported to the Board that he had contacted the various cities within the county to get their position on the County issuing fireworks permits. The policy has been the County issued all the permits within the County including the cities.

Moved by Heikens/Schumacher to approve regular agenda; all ayes.

REPORTS: Library, street and police reports were included in packets.

OLD BUSINESS: None

NEW BUSINESS: Eygabroad with Beck Engineering addressed the council about concerns residents had with the re-seeding of Ave B. He stated that he had walked the area and that the contractor would also be coming over to walk the area. He stated that about 90% of the dirt was the original dirt removed from the property and not that it makes it OK but that the re-seed on the project looks a lot better than some he has seen. He felt weeds were one of the biggest concerns. They will do what they can to be sure the residents are happy. Council expressed concern about a low spot and he stated that he would look at that before he left town.

Concerns over the program at the Blue Water Festival last summer were again addressed. Council noted that it appears there have been changes made to this year’s event which would lend to a better program. Moved by Heikens/Taber to give $2500.00 again this year towards the Blue Water Festival; all ayes.

Moved by Heikens/Baumgarn to approve mayor appointment of Sarah Prevot to the library board; all ayes.

Moved by Heikens/Schumacher to approve the tax abatement for Landon Dillingham for the property located at 1006 S. Market St.; all ayes.

Chief Urwin explained to the council what a possible reserve officer program would look like and how it would operate. Possible costs that would be involved, training, etc. Moved by Schumacher/Heikens to move forward with a reserve officer program; all ayes.

Matthiesen explained to the council that there were some questions raised by a park board member about the responsibilities of the park board, the difficulty of getting new members, lack of quorum in some voting situations and the necessity of the board. After much discussion the council made the decision to try operating for a year or more without a board with the Park manager and the Pool manager working directly with the city administrator and council. Moved by Taber/ Baumgarn to create a resolution dissolving the park board to be adopted at the July meeting; all ayes.

With the resignation of Carole Bergendahl the council discussed who should handle the cleaning of the campground restrooms. There were 3 applications turned in for the position. The current campground host has been cleaning during the interim. It was noted that one of the duties in the contract with the campground host is to oversee the cleanliness of the restrooms. Council discussed that for the balance of this year to amend the contract to include cleaning since the host has been performing this duty. Moved by Heikens/Schumacher to amend the campground host contract to include cleaning of restrooms at an hourly rate of $10.00 per hour; all ayes.

Mayor’s report, council discussion and administrator’s report were last items on agenda.
