Chairman Wurtz announced that this was the time and place for a Public Hearing on Plans, Specifications, Form of Contract and Estimate of Costs. The Secretary noted that the Notice was published on October 25, 2017 in the Dickinson County News. No written or oral comments were received in the office and no one was present with comments at the meeting. The Chairman closed the Public Hearing.

Arvin Druvenga and Carol Sporrer presented the Audit Report for Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 2017. The only finding noted was a lack of segregation of duties, which will be an issue as long as there are only two office employees. Nelson/Prunty made a motion to accept the audit report. Motion passed unanimously.

Neal Guess of Bolton and Menk announced that we received nine bids and that Cory Juergens was low bid on the 230th Avenue Watermain Project and recommended that we accept the bid of $205,956.60 which is under the engineering estimate of $214,000. Anderson/Nelson made a motion to approve Resolution 15-17, Approving contract and Bond and Making Award of Contract of the 230th Avenue Watermain Loop Project, awarding the contract to Cory Juergens. Roll Call vote was taken. Ayes – Wharton, Prunty, Nelson, Anderson and Wurtz. Nays – None. Motion passed.

The date for the Employee Appreciation Dinner was set as December 13th at the Coffee Shop.

Anderson/Wharton made a motion to accept the Wellmark Health Insurance quote for EnhancedBlue 1000 PPO Gold Plan and continue with a 15% employee contribution for family coverage. Motion passed unanimously.

Items Discussed in the Manager’s Report:

• Manager Stoll noted that he received an email from the large commercial customer who is disputing their bill and they have gone south and would like to meet between 19th and 28th of December. The Hearing Officers are not available that week due to the holidays and suggested that a meeting be set up in the spring.

• Manager Stoll noted that he will be doing the employee evaluations before the next meeting and will bring wage recommendations to the next meeting, using the budgeted amounts as a guideline for his recommendation.

• The customer service line leak was recently repaired in West Okoboji. We repaired the leak on Airport drive which ended up being a service line but because of the way those lines looped we could not tell whose it was. It was noted that we should make customers aware that there may be insurance coverage on their home owner’s policies in our next quarterly newsletter.

• Prunty has agreed to serve another six-year term.

The Board of Trustees adjourned the meeting. The next regular meeting of the Milford Municipal Utility Board of Trustees will be December 11, 2017.

WHEREAS, the Planning and Zoning Commission has considered the proposed zoning change and it is deemed advisable and recommended by the Planning and Zoning Commission to amend the Arnolds Park Zoning Ordinance.

Section 1. REPEAL AND REPLACE ZONING TEXT. The Arnolds Park Zoning Ordinance is hereby amended by repealing the existing “Height” regulations in Section 165.12.5 Site Development Regulations in the (C-4) Resort Commercial District and replace with the following new regulation.

Height - 55 feet maximum height. No structure shall be permitted to extend into approach zones, clear zones, or restricted air space required for the protection of any airport.

Section 2. REPEAL AND REPLACE ZONING TEXT. The Arnolds Park Zoning Ordinance is hereby amended by repealing the existing text from Section 165.26.1. Procedures in Article 165.26 Changes and Amendments and replacing with the following new text.

165.26.1. PROCEDURES.

This chapter and the district map created by said chapter may be amended from time to time. However, no amendments shall become effective unless it shall have been proposed by or shall have been first submitted to the Planning and Zoning Commission for review and recommendation.

The Planning and Zoning Commission shall have forty-five (45) days from receipt of the requested zoning change or text amendment in which to submit it recommendations to the City Council. If the requested change is for a rezoning of property, at least once during the public hearing process, property owners within two hundred feet (200’) of the property or properties intended to be rezoned shall be notified by regular mail. In the event there is more than one property owner, it shall be sufficient on behalf of the city to notify one property owner per property. In the event of a zoning text amendment, notification to property owners within two hundred feet (200’) is not required since a text amendment affects all properties within the community.

Not more than thirty (30) days following the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission, the City Council shall hold at least one (1) public hearing on the property rezoning or text amendment. Within 30 days following the closing of a public hearing, the city council shall make a specific finding as to whether the change is consistent with the objectives of this ordinance. If the City Council finds that the proposed rezoning request or text amendment is consistent with the intent of the ordinance, it shall introduce an ordinance amending the change in the zoning map or text amendment, whichever is appropriate. If the City Council finds that the rezoning request or text amendment is not consistent, it shall deny the application.

The City Council shall not modify a recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission on a rezoning request or text amendment until it has considered a review and additional recommendation on such modifications from the City Council. Failure of the Planning Commission to report back to the City Council within 30 days after receipt of the council’s request shall be deemed concurrence.

Section 3: REPEALER. All ordinances or parts of the previously adopted Arnolds Park Zoning Ordinance in conflict with the provisions of this zoning amendment are hereby repealed.

Section 4: SEVERABILITY CLAUSE. If any section, provision or any part of this zoning amendment is determined to be invalid or unconstitutional, such adjudication shall not affect the validity of the previously adopted Arnolds Park Zoning Ordinance or Official Zoning Map as a whole, or any part or provision of the zoning amendment not determined to be invalid or unconstitutional.

Section 5: EFFECTIVE DATE. This zoning amendment shall be in full force and effect from after passage and publication in a newspaper of general circulation.
