City of Orleans

Regular Council Meeting

September 11, 2017

The City of Orleans city council met in regular session Monday, September 11, 2017 at Orleans City Hall. Mayor Bill Maas called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance. Council present: Kristine Hoss, Eric Anderson, Terry Wilts, Benjamin Radcliffe, Keith Ostrum. Others present: Don Hemphill, Peggy Rick, Tom Hoffman.

Motion Anderson, second Hoss to approve August minutes, Treasurer’s report and bills for payment as presented. Council member Anderson requested Mayor Maas to contact Sam with Wedeking Excavating on invoices and charges he feels are excessive with regard to going rates. Motion carried 5-0.

Council member Anderson reported on a complaint received of tall grass on 253rd by Josh Nelson property. Property owner is letting it go back to natural habitat state and it appears to be within the guidelines of City Ordinance.

Council member Ostrum presented a summary of costs spent past two seasons on contract labor for city maintenance and recommendations of possible city equipment to be purchased to assist our PT maintenance person in completing maintenance tasks. Tom Hoffman reported that he continues to use his own tools and equipment for certain maintenance jobs. Council asked him to provide a list of items he uses of his own as well as a list of items he feels would be beneficial for the city to consider purchasing to perform maintenance duties.

Mayor Maas reported that the Dickinson County Soil & Water Conservation extended the grant application cost share until 12/31/17 for the prairie grasses and LID area to be planted on 140th across from the Cemetery. Councilmember Wilts will check to see if Young Brothers can perform the work. Mayor Maas reported the original contractor backed out of the project.

Councilmember Wilts reported that Young Brothers submitted a bid to seed the swale work done on 252nd Avenue at a cost of $248.00 for the Fall season. Council also asked Wilts to see if they would seed the ditch work that was done by Kuhlman’s as well to help maintain that ROW area as well.

Anderson introduced RESOLUTION 17-08 A resolution authorizing submission of application of Iowa DNR grant to aid in the control of invasive weed infestation in East Okoboji Lake. Radcliffe seconded and in roll call vote, Hoss, Anderson, Wilts, Radcliffe and Ostrum voted aye. RESOLUTION 17-08 duly passed 5-0.

Mayor Maas reported that during the 252nd Avenue road and trail project, Kuhlman’s sign was removed. Kuhlman’s have requested a permit to install a new sign and due to the size of the new sign, they are required to go to the board of adjustment for a variance. Given that the street project had their sign removed, Mayor Maas is asking the council to waive the variance application fee. Motion Wilts, second Anderson to waive the variance application fee for Kuhlman’s sign request. Motion carried 5-0.

REPORT OF OFFICERS

Committee Reports: Public Works Director Jason Eckard told the Council that the West Okoboji Road Project was to start September 18th with a completed estimate date of October 9th. Because of the lateness of this project and it being tied into 1st Street, the sealing of 1st Street will not be done until the spring.

Eckard also informed the council that three trees were to be removed from Vern & Coila Memorial Park due to the Burr Oak Blight. Some discussion amongst the Council ensued concerning the Burr Oak Blight in our community. Eckard stated we will know how many trees are infected this winter as the infected trees will not lose their leaves.

Administrative Reports: Administrator Ballis informed the Council the Annual Financial Report was completed and will be published in the upcoming edition of the Dickinson County News.

The revisions to the draft of the Code of Ordinances have been completed and Ballis will return the document to Iowa Codification for the final proof. She is hoping it will be ready so that a public hearing can be set at the next council meeting.

Ballis informed the council that trees were topped on city property in the ravine in Maywood. She asked the council for permission to send a letter to those in Maywood pointing out the Code of Ordinances on this matter and the infractions involved. Ballis asked the councils thoughts on putting up surveillance in and around the ravine to curb this problem.

A representative from Data Technologies was on site last week to update our software and help streamline the accounting process in utilizing the chart of accounts for City Government in a more effective manner. She stated a lot of clean up was involved and thanked the Council for approving this.

Ladegaard/Paxton moved to adjourn. All ayes. Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 7:10 P.M.
