CITIZEN OPPORTUNITY FOR COMMENT

Kenny Halbur handed out pictures of property he owns along the creek south of Milford and talked about the storm sewer drainage that runs along the old railroad property owned by the Winters. Mr. Halber is concerned that he has lost approximately 8 ft. of his shoreline since Mr. Olsen pushed sand and gravel along his own property. As a result, this has changed the course of the creek and there is a fair amount of silt that has accumulated and Kenny is asking that the city dredge it out. After further discussion Mayor Reinsbach informed Kenny the council isn’t able to take any action unless he is on agenda. Kenny asked to be on the next agenda.

ACTIONS & DISCUSSION ITEMS

Council to review and consider entering into 28E agreement with the Little Sioux Headwaters Coalition-Watershed Management

John Wills, Dickinson County Clean Water Alliance Coordinator thanked the City for being a part of the Dickinson County Water Quality Commission and for the funding that is provided. Wills explained the benefits of forming a watershed management authority was to help in receiving grant money and stated the Little Sioux Headwaters Coalition organization would not compete with the Dickinson County Clean Water Alliance Commission. Questions were raised in regards to possible future funding and who would sit on the board. Wills also commented it takes two entities to enter into a 28E agreement and so far the Dickinson County Board of Supervisors, Dickinson County Soil and Water Conservation along with the cities of Lake Park, Okoboji and West Okoboji have agreed to join. After discussion amongst council members there was a motion by Rolling second by Huse to table this until the attorney has a chance to review it and discuss it with the new administration that is coming in January 1st, 2018.
