The public nuisance hearing was not held. The resident’s daughter had contacted the City Clerk and an agreement had been arranged that work would begin to improve the nuisance and progress would be monitored by the City Clerk.
Councilperson Nobles arrived at the meeting at 5:12 P.M.
Lynn Mulder, Terry & Lisa Cooper and Jane Feller were at the meeting to request that the City pay for a sewer main extension in their alley rather than have costs assessed to the property owners. The residents had asked for the sewer main extension so that they would not have to repair their private lines all the way to the current main on 6th Avenue. City Council was in agreement with the sewer main extension but not interested in starting a precedence of paying for new sewer lines. No motion was made.
A statement from Trackworks for rail project materials was reviewed. Motion by Pedley seconded by Groote to table the statement. All voted Aye. Nay none.
Motion by Pedley seconded by Groote to approve the hiring of Jim Blum from Spirit Lake to complete a survey related to the rail spur purchase at an estimated cost of $4,000.00. Aye Buchholtz, Groote, Henningsen, Pedley. Nay Nobles.
Motion by Buchholtz seconded by Pedley to approve the Rail Purchase Agreement with Union Pacific Railroad Company for a cost of $85,000.00. Aye Buchholtz, Groote, Pedley, Nobles. Nay Henningsen.
Various options of rail spur upgrade funding were discussed. City Administrator Janssen will attend the County Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 to find out where they are on the project. He will also contact the engineer about cost estimates and the bidding process and Council may need to have a special meeting to finalize plans.
Motion by Nobles seconded by Groote to approve addendum #1 from DGR Engineering, Rock Rapids, IA updating project schedules and cost estimates for RICE NESHAP Compliance. All voted Aye. Nay none.
Motion by Nobles seconded by Buchholtz to approve pay request #10 in the amount of $20,141.60 to Godbersen-Smith Construction Co., Ida Grove, IA for 2nd Avenue Street improvements. All voted Aye. Nay none.
Motion by Groote seconded by Henningsen to approve a change order #129 in the amount of $-820.00 to Services Unlimited Inc., Ireton, IA for the water and wastewater SCADA Phase 2. All voted Aye. Nay none.
Two bids were received for the wastewater/water addition from Hartzell/Rosenberg Construction in the amount of $30,500.00 and D & T Construction in the amount of $21,902.68. Motion by Henningsen seconded by Buchholtz to accept low bid for the wastewater/water addition from D & T Construction in the amount of $21,902.68. All voted Aye. Nay none.
Councilperson Groote introduced Resolution No 1249-13, Approving and Authorizing Destruction of Records and moved that the same be adopted. Councilperson Nobles seconded the motion to adopt. The roll was called and the vote was Aye 5. Nay 0.
